This hostel is clean, in the city and quite modern. (The staff are a bit rude though) But honestly, you get depressed of this place and it's way overpriced. The kitchen is ok but all over the place (including the kitchen) are lots of angry notes like 'Don't touch the food, buy your own!!!' and so on. All the other... More

Recently I was visiting my girlfriend in Auckland and we wanted to stay together in a private room while I was there to avoid giving up privacy in a dorm room – after a small research on the net, BK Hostel was our accommodation of choice. We didn’t really know what to expect as the TripAdvisor reviews I read were... More

This is definitely a comfortable hostel with a budget price that you can find in the city center area. Most importantly it is a cleaned and safe hostel to stay. Additionally it is closed to all city amenities like universities, public library, super markets and the bus stop. It has dormitory that only share with 4 people in a room... More

This is a comfortable hostel though feels a little impersonal, perhaps because the reception staff are hidden inside a "cabin". The rooms are clean and it has a wardrobe and desk, which is a nice touch. The kitchen seemed OK and the showers also. You need to leave a 20NZD key deposit, which is refundable when you check out but... More

All in all a very pleasant and comfortable stay combine with great location to make this excellent value for money. The communal spaces, including a great lounge, gives this place a surprisingly homely feel, considering the central location building. I stayed for 3 nights and would definitely go back.

Stayed in this hostel for two nights. The location is ok. Could be better but if you don't mind walking, the city is in your reach. The hostel is a bit worn down but ok, the staff are helpful and nice and prepared to keep the office open if you're arriving late. The kitchen is (as they attend to be)... More

We have not had, nor do we currently have, bed bugs in BK Hostel. We periodically perform preventative pest control in every room and clean the common areas daily. Our friendly staff is always willing to help should any guest have a problem during the stay. More
