I stayed on December 2014, half jan 2015 and half feb 2015, feels like coming back home, to see the staff that act like your best friends, going the extra mile always. My special thanks to Donna, Shane, Benk and the rest of the staff that unfortunately don't remember their names, but helped me with my entire trip, from bookings,... More

The best bit is easily the kitchen, a massive modern job that is worth spending the evening in (there is a very modern seating area too). The rooms are fine if unspectacular. The location is OK but a few minutes further out, plus a steepish walk up a hill, than the other central hostels.

Nice staff, nice room. Everything's a little older, but working and clean. The kitchen is big enough and has enough fridges. The Location Is great, You can Walk everywhere and the inner circle bus is just around the corner. Unfortunately, there is no own Parking space, so You either pay a Lot of money or park your car 20 min... More

I stayed for 4 nights in a double room with shared bathroom. Close to the city centre and walking distance to harbour. A uphill climb to get there, especially on the block where the hostel is located.(short but steep climb) Also convenient to Queen Street where the Airport bus picks up and drops off. I stayed late January which tends... More

Stayed for a night in a 4 bed dorm, friendly staff, great atmosphere. Helped me book onward accomodation and made suggestions for things to do and a better room type. Up quite a steep hill but good exercise after eating all the delicious things in Auckland.

If i wouldn't have to pay my entire stay in advance i would have changed hostel. Have been overcharged for no reason, unhelpful and unfriendly reception, had to change room with no warning after some days. You can find better for that prices

I liked this hostel. I read some iffy reviews but since I have YHA membership it makes it a lot cheaper... 6 mix dorm, my preference would have been a 4 girl dorm but it was sold out, however the 6 bed dorm was totally fine. It was clean and comfortable. Check in time is 2 pm which is a... More

VERY NOISY!! There are two YHA in Auckland - City and International. This review is about the City hostel. There are steep roads on two sides of the hostel resulting in very noisy car, bus and truck noise right outside your room, as vehicles attempt to get up the hills. Plenty of people testing how quickly their car can go... More

"I stayed in YHA for a few nights with my wife. It was a very well kept place. The kitchen was also neat and clean. The night staffs do a great job with regards to cleaning and security. Venk is great to catch up with too. He gave us free blankets too when we asked for them. No issues or... More
