I stayed for close to two weeks in YHA Auckland City, since I landed in Auckland in July. I am a student with the University of Auckland. The hostel is the best “first-stop” for students, I felt. It is a wonderful and homely place, with a number of helpful staff members. This place has a full-fledged kitchen as well which... More

I was in this YHA at Liverpool Street. The facilities were awesome and so were the staff. This guy Venk helped me a lot and made me feel very comfortable. Overall it was a very good experience and it did feel like home.

Stayed here 2 weeks and I would have stayed longer, but the YHAs Auckland only allow you to stay in both Hostels altogether for 4 weeks. Overall the place is very clean and tidy. The kitchen is very big, but the common room adjacent to the kitchen is a bit small. When I stayed there, the common room and the... More

Great French café down the street amongst all the other food outlets. Easy to walk down to the bus/train station. Be prepared to hear young drunks in the early hours on the streets. Very pleasant staff.

I was leaving the next day for Australia, and had no printout of my visa or return air ticket. I wasn't able to print them out on my tablet. The staff at the desk suggested I e-mail them the info and they could print the visa and ticket out, which they did. Problem solved. When I'm in Auckland, I always... More

I'm not going to go on about the size but for a twin room you would think for two people staying in there, there's room for luggage? No. The designated shelving space didn't help the situation NO PLUGS! Look can understand the yha NZ does have a Eco friendly thing to abide by, but try charging a camera, two phones,... More

YHA Auckland City is all right. The room we stayed in was ok - spacious enough for two people. I loved the very big window. Overall, it's perfect for a maximum of a 3 night's stay because of its location and facilities. There were only two things that I didn't quite like about this hostel:- i) It can be a... More

I spent 8 weeks working in Auckland and this is the hostel I stayed at during that time. It's the worst YHA hostel in NZ.. no doubt about it. Don't get me wrong it's not terrible.. if it was that bad i'd have moved on, but it's quite a way from being good! The place suffers from a serious damp... More

This could be a decent YHA however it lack a few things that are usually standard in most hostels. The dorm rooms do not have lockers in them, while the website states they are available you must pay to use the lockers in the basement level. I had problems with the lock on my door during my stay and it... More
