Comically bad DO NOT STAY HERE

I have travelled extensively and stayed at hostels throughout Nz and the rest of the world, and have to say this place is the worst by far. We checked in and were shown two options for our room. We chose the first option, room number 39. I did find it strange that we hadn’t been assigned a room and didn’t see the receptionist take any note of which room we were assigned. The hostel is incredibly dirty however this room didn’t look as dirty as the rest of the place (although I don’t think the sheets are changed in between guests). After we checked in we went out for dinner (way too dirty to cook in the kitchen). We arrived back at around 9:30pm and put the key in the room door to find a complete random guy in there! He jumped out of bed in fright and turns out my partner and I were assigned the same as this poor guy. I quickly shut the door and called reception, she explained that as there weren’t any bags in the room when I checked in she thought no one had been assigned the room. This is no way to run a hostel!!! Completely unprofessional not to mention dangerous. We were assigned a new room in which I slept in all my clothes and used my spare tshirt as a pillow case. This place needs to be shut down
Really like this place

When I’m stopping through Dunedin, I enjoy staying at the Stafford St Gables. I think the building is super cool, it’s cheap, and the staff are friendly. If you’re an ultra fancy person it ain’t for you, but I’m sure I’ll pop in again. Cheers!
Stay LITERALLY ANYWHERE ELSE

DON'T STAY HERE. Pay the extra couple of bucks for another hostel or STAY LITERALLY ANYWHERE ELSE. I'd rather stay in the overgrown yard next door. I can normally forgive crappy facilities if the staff are accommodating, but in this case, I really can't. Cold rooms and cold showers. They take a key deposit, but don't open reception on check out to return it. The receptionist tried to pay me to send a fraudulent email to booking.com and worst off all you have to pay for toilet roll. Sleep in the street, sleep in the park, go and cuddle up with a meth addict - you'll be better off than staying here. New Zealand hospitality would benefit overall if this place was wiped off the map.
Excellent value for money, friendly staff, will definitely return.

My dad and I came here to stay for a couple of nights. We had some issues with money transferred into our accounts from Australia and they completely understanding. They were very accommodating, good facilities, hot showers, clean bathrooms, clean room. Really impressed. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you to the staff for your wonderful service.
Dreadful and a rip-off

My partner, on a motorbike ride was impacted by bad weather and needed accomodation in Dunedin at short notice. He was wet, cold and just needed a warm bed. The owners cashed in on the lack of accomodation due to the Elton john concert and the road closures that had stranded travellers. He paid $200 for a bed in a six bed dorm (normally $29)They would only accept cash and there was not even a cup of tea or a towel! Shame on you Stafford Gables!
