Disliked: Staff & service, room comfort
Not worthy of the name “Haka”
Cleaning staff came in before checkout time both mornings of my stay. First morning they lifted the curtain to my bed, then turned off the fan that was going for air circulation due to very high humidity over the weekend. Didn’t clean bin, either. Second morning they abruptly turned about as I rushed to close my bed’s curtain as I was getting ready for leaving by checkout time. On-site staff did not quiet down loud group smoking and carrying on until 1:45am on the Saturday night in the parking lot, echoing louder up into the deck towards rooms. Stay in top bunk was incredibly unrestful, as your face is in the floorboards for the unit above and there is no underlay to quiet down the movements of the rooms above you. Pillows incredibly hot and stuffy. Old luggage & clothing left in under-bed storage bay, not cleared out. Broken curtain (thrown in corner of room) for lower bunk made it unusable to avoid noise from upstairs.

Liked: Staff & service
Great staff from reception and housekeeping. Wifi signal was weak from my room so I used my data the entire time. Bed was clean but the floors and storage floor should be vacuumed.
