Hostel is in a great location but we didn't like staying here as nothing worked...very frustrating! The lifts broke a lot & there were no stairs to take instead, no shower heads on the showers & temperature of showers went from scorching to freezing, our door to our room also didn't open & close properly, the washing machine swallowed our...

If you want to stay in Auckland down town Base is good. Reception open 24 hours rooms modest but so are prices. It is more aimed at the Younger traveler ,you can sleep in a dorm for around $25 or have your own room with small ensuite bathroom for around $130.

I have stayed there a a few days... and it's a nice place to stay. The price is reasonable, the kitchen is very large and tide... even though it's a bit crowded you will find a place... rooms are nice and clean and very friendly roommates... One more plus is the location, you have countdown supermarket just 1 min walk... More

Although there were no major complaints to be had about the quality of our stay - showers were hot, the kitchen was functional, if quite busy, our big bone of contention about this place is how base is a bottle neck for travellers entering the country, and how they take advantage of this. The prices are more than you would... More

We stayed in double room. It was small, no windows and no mirror. We wonder whats the use of a hanging picture on the wall while guests need mirror the most in the room. Kitchen was big but awfully smelly, dirty and messy. All kitchen ware like pots, pans are either rusted or out of shape, knifes that cant cut... More

ROOM: 411 is a double room that is a bit far from the shared bath / showers. No window, as I recall. There's no climate control in the room, so hope the master control gets it right. There's was shampoo, soap, a towel, and a fridge, which is convenient. The bed was fine. SERVICE: It was fairly busy and took... More

Pros: great central location, easy access to everywhere and transport links close by. 24hr reception. On site job help(although you need to pay for it). Cons: stains everywhere and dirty especially the kitchen, no atmosphere, beds old and not comfy. Have to pay for wifi. I am really not a negative person but just did not enjoy my stay esp... More
