The owner, David, is very helpfull, generous and gives heaps of advices... He was keen enough to let us share a double room as 4 beds dorm room, making the room at a better price. he even gave us a sim card! The kitchen is well furnished, clean and large enough to allow people to cook at the same time.... More

I really enjoy this Hostel, the place is not too big, it's a house and you feel like you're at home with great roommates! this place is nice if you want to work in Auckland, close to the CBD and Ponsoby road! and it's better because you can really meet some great people, as we have a common area really...

The staff seemed not to be really happy to help me when I needed. The kitchen was very good and the place was clean. The showers had to be payed apart ($0.50) and time was limited (6 minutes). The location is walking distance from the city centre (25min).

Beds were wholly uncomfortable and clearly hadn't been washed when we arrived despite our booking well in advance. The room was deplorablly untidy hardly the hostels fault, but there seemed to be no real rules in the place. The corridors actually stank, nauseatingly so. In terms of facilities the kitchen was well equipped although the whole 50c per 6 minute... More

We stayed here for one night when down in Auckland for the weekend. We chose Borders Beyond for the location (10 minute walk to city centre) and the advertised free parking. We arrived Saturday night and parked in business parking next to the hostel, but if it was during the week would have ended up parking on the street. There... More

Excellent place to stay in Auckland, especially for the price and the quality you offer specialist, is one of the cheapest hostels in the city. David and the staff always smiling and helping in whatever you need, we stayed on two occasions because the location is great, about 15 minutes walk from the center and about 10 minutes walk from...

Great place. It was recommended by people I met at the airport. The manager is nice, friendly, helpful and funny. The other guests were very nice. Overall it was a very good atmosphere. I felt comfortable. Although the beds are not that comfortable, I'd defenitely stay there again.
