I believe YHA is the best at Auckland, even more you have are a YHA member... which is only $45 a year. Being a member, for a very affordable price you get free unlimited wifi, a very clean hostel with many clean bathrooms at any floor, a beautyfull and giant kitchen. I stayed at both YHA hostels at Auckand, and... More

I stayed in this hostel for 8 days due to some circumstances. The room I had was 4 bed dorm room (2 bunks). I was staying in second level which is less noisy than my friend who stayed in first level. Always bring ear plugs. Plus - Kitchen is pretty big and had decent amount of pans and cutlery. -... More

Small rooms, no noticeboard, and about 2 km's from the harbour. The location is far from perfect, plus it's a really steep hill when going there. There are plenty of other places closer to the city centre, for the same price or less. Not recommended.

This was my SECOND time staying at the YHA Auckland City because I had a good stay my first time, five years ago. Staff (Chris, Aaron, Aya, and everyone else who's name I cant remember!) is still just as friendly and helpful and lovely to talk to. There's an elevator, HUGE kitchen and lots of refrigerator space. The number of... More

I enjoy my time there! I stayed there for 5 nights and it was very nice. The hostel is very organized and saved. They have a strong control of people who gets in the building. Also, it was very clean for a hostel. The kitchen is very nice too. ;) The only problem in my opinion was that the hostel... More

This was my first stop in NZ. I checked in late after a long haul flight, the receptionist was friendly but at a guess I would think he was new, which isnt ideal for 2am check ins. We got a twin room, I think we got unlucky as the room really stank, almost a stale alcohol smell. Over all this... More

We recently stayed three nights in they YHA and although the building and the rooms are quite small the staff were more than helpful. The kitchen is huge and very clean but the bathrooms were the opposite. There was only one shower in the girls toilets for a floor of 15 rooms and the sanitary bins were over flowing for... More

This YHA is at a great good location on a hill and a short walk from Queen Street. I had a double room that only came with a wardrobe. There is a small bathroom on each floor that was kept very clean. The main downside was that my room was located on the first floor and would get overly warm... More

I could write so much but I'll keep this short. Our booking was messed up and we nearly didn't end up with the 3 nights we'd booked, the girl on the phone we dealt with hadn't booked us in at all but thanks to the manager he sorted us out. We had 3 different rooms on the 3 nights. Each... More
