I stayed here twice and had a great time on both occasions. The room I had was superb: clean, spacious and nicely furnished. The staff were terrific; very friendly and helpful. It's in a great location to see the CBD and the guests were friendly too. Highly recommended!!

We stayed here for 4 nights over Christmas. We stayed in the double room which was very clean and had a tv which was great. Bathroom/ shower was shared but always very clean and newly renovated. Hostel staff were very friendly and welcoming. The hostel owner was very welcoming and seemed to have a genuine interest in keeping everyone happy.... More

first of all, for those who actually want to sleep, this is truly not the hostel for you! I have stayed in many hostels before and I understand completely that you will get the odd night which makes it hard to have a good rest. However we stayed for 3 nights and I maybe got about 5 hours in each... More

We have been to other hostels in Auckland and this was definitely the best! It's in the centre and just a few steps away from queen street. The rooms, bathroom and kitchen are clean. The staff is very friendly, they have every day another highlight like movie night with free popcorn, free BBQ and ice cream and so on. The... More

The Frienz hsotel is really clean and friendly backpacker in the center of Auckland, just 5 mins walk from Britomart Station, the price are all right especially weekly rates. The rooms are clean and very spacious and the stuff very friendly and helpful, every night they organise something (movies, poker, barbecue...). Really good backpacker!!!!!!

This place was ok - the location was great. There was no free parking, you needed to keep a code with you to get in (or buzz the front desk), and there were several stairs to go up before you could take an elevator (difficult with heavy luggage). There were computers with internet to use for free, but wi-fi was... More

We loved frienz backpackers! When you stay in hostels you just want a clean bed and a decent shower and to feel safe and this was that and more. If you expect any more than that for the amount you are paying a night, then you should probley check into a hotel! Nicky the receptionist was lovely and so helpful... More

Going in to the hostel I thought it was ok and noticed that they had tried to decorate it nicely despite peeling wallpaper, and they offered many social activities. Once I got to my room I found that I couldn't even get to my bed as the girl below me had dumped all of her things in front of the... More

We stayed here for one night in a double room. Receptionist was really nice and helpful. The room and bathroom were clean, the kitchen looked clean too but we didn't use it so didn't get a good look at it. There was no top sheet on the bed and we questioned whether the duvet was clean... Towels were provided. Unfortunately... More
