Stayed here for a couple of nights because it was cheapest, but I wouldn't choose to do it again. Fork out the extra 10 bucks for better hostel. This place is always noisy, the kitchen is ridiculous sized, and be prepared to spend precious time waiting for a shower. On the other hand, the staff was really really nice and... More

We were staying in the Hostel Fat Nomads before, which was awful so we changed. We were very happy with the Choice Plaza Backpackers! We were staying in a double room in the 9th floor where we had a very big room with a fantastic view! We could sleep very well here and we were also content with the amenities.... More

Me and my friend stayed at this hostel in march 2013. Since we we're only staying a couple days we thought it seemed like a good hostel to stay at since it was so cheap. We stayed in a 8 bed female dorm. I thought it was a great place to stay at, cheap, good location and very clean. I... More

In the beginning I liked it, even tho it is not clean. They clean once a day thoroughly, but this is not enough. 3 showers for a 10 floor hostel! Same about toiletts, which are always disgusting, except for the 30 minutes after cleaning. A kitchen made for 2 people, used by everybody. The atmosphere in this kitchen is terrible,... More

If the absolutely disgraceful showers and toilets covered in wee aren't enough to put you off, the kitchen is literally the size of a box with no room to make your food and you have to take out another 10 minutes to re-wash the dishes you're using to get rid of the meal someone had before. Since i've been here,... More

This is the worst hostel in Auckland, and I've stayed in plenty. I stayed in a room with some of the guys that work in the hotel and it was nasty! There was no space to put my bags, since their stuff was everywhere. They rolled joints in the rooms everynight which made it stink and were very inconsiderate to... More

Rough and ready, cheap and fun, this is the place to go stay in Auckland if you are hitching or busing, a short walk from cheap takeaways and cheap booze and cheap thrills (K rd). By the time you have had enough of the nightlife a varied mix of nationality people will be partying spilling out onto the street, good... More

I stayed here a couple of times on my trip to New Zealand. It isn't the most luxurious or well equipped hostel that I've stayed in but the staff are very friendly and it has a nice atmosphere. It's in the city centre so the location is excellent All valuables can be left behind reception so I'm not sure what... More
