Other than the beds, there was very little additional furnishing in our dorm, but it also had an outside balcony with comfy chairs to sit in. 2009-09-27 - igougo.com
Looking at the website, I see that the dorm I was in was actually the largest in the hostel. 2009-09-27 - igougo.com
discount per adult per night (with differing rates for children), but this is only really worth it if you will stay more than a couple of nights in hostels over the course of a year. 2009-09-27 - igougo.com
The showers were very basic but clean and there were too few of them (only two in the women's bathroom). 2009-09-27 - igougo.com
The dorms were fairly small (4 bunk beds of two beds) and were mixed. 2009-09-27 - igougo.com

===Other facilities=== The hostel also had various other facilities that I've now come to expect as the norm when travelling - pay as you go internet connection, payphones, a good library of books and videos, a big common room with a tv area and a reading area. 2009-09-27 - igougo.com
Most of the occupants of the hostel when I was there were in the 18-35 age bracket and were travelling by themselves, but I met some very friendly retired people there as well. 2009-09-27 - igougo.com
It was cheap (NZD$26, about Ã‚Â£12 per night for a bed in a mixed dorm), clean, in a nice area, and I met plenty of like-minded travellers of all ages, so it didn't have the lonely feel that staying in a hotel by yourself can do. 2009-09-27 - igougo.com
