Stayed for 3 nights in the city YHA, it was clean, comfortable and a good location. We booked a 2 person dorm, and it was pretty much a private twin room so we were happy with that, to have our own space. The shared bathroom facilities were kept clean. The room was on the 4th floor and we had no...

I stayed in this hostel for five nights and overall have nothing bad to say about it. It was one of the cleanest hostels I've been to, including the room, toilets and showers. It was very quiet, which is probably also due to off-season and not having the hostel full. The bed was squeaky but comfortable enough, the temperature in...

This hostel was very clean and pretty. If you are the party and drinking type then don't stay here, the vibe is usually very mellow and quite, definitely not a party hostel, but the cleanliness and quality of the rooms and kitchen was refreshing. I found the maids to be a bit rude, one even walked straight into my room...

I stayed there for a cuple if nights in the beginning of may. The Hostel was ok! I stayed in a double room, which was very small. The bathroom were very clean & the showers worked well.. The location was good, 10 mins to the center. Nice asian restaurants just around the corner!

A typical hostel. It's not bad, but there's nothing brilliantly stand out. Lovely amount of kitchen facilities. The whole place was very clean looking. Probably slightly out of date for the modern traveller, my room had two plug sockets...both above a bed. So unusable during the night as someone was sleeping there. Good location for central Auckland activities. 10 min...

I only stayed here for one night but it was ideal and central, location wise. The room was slightly dated but comfortable with a bit of street noise when the windows were open. There were only two bathrooms on each floor which wasn't a problem on an evening but very annoying in the morning as you even had to wait...

I have stayed after landing in NZ and then again a few days before flying out. First time I was in a room for 2 on 4th floor. The room is OK, bed a bit old, electric socket only above 1bed which was inconvenient. The bathroom was fine, not big but apparently sufficient since never had to wait for toilet...

The Good: Nice clean kitchen with good supply of plates, utensils, etc. I left my Kindle there and they promptly sent me an email to let me know. Convenient location. The Bad: The room itself left a lot to be desired. We paid slightly more for a double room. The room was very drab. The worst of it was that...
