nl91 I was impressed with the cleanliness and the service during my one day stay at YHA Gisborne. In my online booking I noted that I was checking in at 8pm but I was running late and was worried whether there would not be anyone around to check me in as 8pm was closing time at the reception. However, YHA Gisborne called me up and told me they would wait for me although i arrived after 8pm. I also got my directions wrong and they guided me over the phone to their location. The place was clean and they were very friendly. I was quite impressed I have now decided to check out YHA hostels for my travel down to the South Island.
