The location is great, couldn't get much better. Staff was friendly. I stayed at a 4bed bedroom. The rooms are fairly small and the beds are of very poor quality. I stayed there two nights and the first night I was on a bed that was extremely noisy, made me wake up a few times when my roommate moved on...

This hostel provides all the basics that you need to begin your adventure in New Zealand and is conveniently located in the very heart of Auckland. But do not expect anything more out of it. The double ensuite rooms are very basic and the walls very thin, but it is cheap. The bed is not the worst out there, so...

I went to Auckland for a music festival, I had a room to myself with its own shower and toilet. It had no windows but for the price your couldn't expect that. I was impressed with the very central location and I got zero noise from the clubs and pubs below. The staff were friendly and helpful. All in all...

Where should I start? Horrendous bathrooms? Disgusting kitchen and fridge - I dont´t really want to put my food in there - but well, sometimes that´s just a backpacker´s daily life. What´s not a backpackers daily life is that you check your bankaccount and missing 30 bucks as they charged a night you never spent or booked there (as I...

Good location, but horrible quality. The rooms stink and are very worn out. The eight bed dorm I stayed in had the beds too close together and it made it difficult to get around. The top bunks had no guards to prevent you from rolling off onto the floor. The bathrooms were usable, but never cleaned very well. People can...

I stayed here for a night and found this place the worst during my trip around North island. The room was dirty when I was the first one to check-in.

Stayed overnight after a night on the town to save on the cost of a taxi or dial-a-driver out of Auckland. The room, furniture, & bathroom were very tired & poor quality. Having recently stayed at the Ibris recently just 300m away for the same price this was very disappointing.

Very very hot in the rooms, very very loud in the rooms. Room was not clean or ready when we arrived after the normal check in time. Had to wait until 5pm when check in is normally at 2pm. Window barely opened in the very hot room. I think if they installed air con that may help. Toilets and showers...
