This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I really wanted to give this hostel a higher rating. In most aspects it looks like a high quality YHA, and it has lots of quirky little details that push it out above the pack. However, I stayed here for two nights, and saw two cockroaches during this time (one in the showers, one in the kitchen), and that's just not something I can accept without major ick, ick, ick! gross-out reactions. (At least not here in New Zealand.) :/
