Interesting place to stay

I stayed here with members of my surf club a couple of years ago. We had an excellent time here. Full of history and even talk of it being haunted. I found it a great place to stay with a bunch of friends, but would probably go somewhere else if I was travelling alone.

Has character but is character enough

Quite a holy place this used to be a convent. If you are interested in Opera this is where Dame Kiri first learnt to sing. Apart from having a bit of history the place is a dump and really really needs some tender loving care. I can't believe I paid money to stay here, then again all the other places in town were full so we had no choice. The beds squeek like mad, the showers were cold, it's a cold old building. I'm embarassed that we have hostels in NZ like this. Fix it up and it could be great.
