At the end of our stay in NZ we lodged 1 night in a 2 person bedroom. It was clean, small and shared bathroom. The location is great if you have to catch the bus to the Airport because it's only 1 minute walk from the bus stand. Also walking downtown takes you only about 15 minutes. Downstairs is a... More

I arrived in Auckland, tired and burdened with my overpacked backpack and luggage. I took the bus shuttle to K Road, got off at the right stop, climbed a steep pavement to the location (146 Karangahape Road, Newton, Auckland) and was not surprised to see a narrow door, leading up a steep staircase to a hole in the wall reception...

Free wifi wasn't the strongest, but still nice. Free breakfast was bread and a couple spreads. Locations is ok, not far from the airbus stop, but a long hill walk from most coach bus services. The deck is good area to chill and meet people.

As a lone traveller visiting Auckland for the first time this place was seriously great; Airport bus drops off 5 min walk away. Rooms nice and clean and beds seemed new, I think all rooms are 4 beds or less. Rooms have lockers with a padlock which was plus. Free wifi great plus as quickly realised that getting wifi in...

Best value in Auckland. Free hi-speed wifi, free DIY breakfast (bread, jam, butter, peanut butter, ham, coffee and tea), clean kitchen with good facilities, clean bathroom, friendly and helpful staff and plenty of leaflets at reception. Hop on Airbus (airport bus) and get down at stop no.1. Turn left right after you get down from the Airbus toward Langham Hotel.... More

Plus points with K Road City Travelers is the free wi-fi, free breakfast, clean bathrooms, free towel upon request and friendly and helpful staff. In terms of value, K Road City Travelers get five out of points. However, it did feel a little old, dark and pokey to me. It's not a bad location, but it was a bit noisy... More

Despite the negatives I'm about to mention we did quite enjoy our time at K road, it has a decent enough location at the top of Queen St and the free wifi goes along way to making up for everything else. Having said that, the walls are paper thin and the place was noisy all night. The kitchen was tiny,... More

On first appearances the hostel gives a bad impression as its a tiny grotty looking doorway with not much to tell you this is k road city travellers. Once you haul your luggage up the stairs though you'll see it's a nice little hostel. Pros: free breakfast consisting of bread, jam peanut butter and ham. Free tea an coffee all... More

Double room, clean bedding, toilets also clean, service very nice, small kitchen but again for an expensive city, good value for money. A bit far from the intercity bus exchange, (15$ cab... More

Nice Place to stay... Bathrooms very clean And nice.. Rooms with only up to for beds. Location right next to Queen Street downhill into The City. We had a Great Time... Meeting Lots of People. Enjoying a bbq on The rooftop, making Pasta Night... And simply Sharing our Adventures. Good Place to Kick Off your new Zealand Trip
