          Bumbles is just on the outskirts of town, a 5 min walk into the centre. This means it's quiet at night, but you can still walk in and out for the night life. Also, It looks out over the beautiful lake, which is nice.
          The rooms are also really clean and spacious. Instead of cramming 10 beds into our six bed dorm they had put in a table, and two singles (not bunk beds). Plus it was en suit.
          Great little place, would stay again.

          Kia Ora! Welcome...to NZ! I have dreamt of coming to New Zealand and now I've finally made it, for a short but fun 17 nights. Due to time difference, my flight from Brisbane didn't arrive into Auckland until 11:30pm local time on Saturday 24th, meaning that by the time I collected my bags and caught the airport-city shuttle I was checking in at 1: …
