Having stayed in hostels for a few months now, this is easily the worst I've stayed in.
The hostel received a pretty good rating on Hostelworld but I wish I'd had read the reviews on TripAdvisor!
There were too many rooms - communal areas are not big enough to cater for everyone. The kitchen area was always really busy. Not enough showers/toilets (2 female showers and toilets for a floor with 8 rooms with 6 people in each and some of these were female only).
The rooms themselves are pretty dire - cold, basic beds, VERY basic mattresses, ceiling with mould stains all over, floor never looked clean, childish bed covers, all made for a pretty bleak room.
All of the above made for a pretty poor stay in Auckland - only positives were the location and that the staff were friendly.
