I stayed there for 2 nights. The location is okay but not the best. The rooms and the building is really small. Tight especially. Everything can me more clean, but it's ok. Is not the best place to meet news peoples, but anyway. If you're looking for somewhere to sleep, simple and cheap, this is good.

This is as boring of a hostel as it could possibly get. There is no socializing area apart from a dining room, although they have a huge kitchen area, I give them that much. Reception people are very helpful and let you store your luggage until check-in time, 2:00pm. I had a bed in a 2-person room which wasn't too... More

I first visited this hostel in 2000 - and have subsequently visited it several times - the most recent stay here was at the end of Feb 2015 for 3 nights. It is a clean and well run hostel. Certainly one of the better ones in Auckland. It seems an organised and well run ship. It is located up a... More

Standard YHA. PLAN before you get there. The building is on the corner, with a steep, one way, street. It's very close to the other YHA. Booking, laundry, kitchen & lounge facilities. Internet booking available

I really love this hostel! i stayed in a two bed room, so for the price it was a very good deal. You find toilet and shower at each floor, there's a nice sundeck at the third floor and the wifi is just amazing (if you compare with other hostel) The hostel is a bit far from teh CBD, and... More

This place gave me head lice. Room 407 bed on the left. And you know what's worse I tried to contact them and they never got back to me. Terrible. Don't stay here. If you do decide to stay here, walk to it from K road because then you don't have to walk up the really step hill.

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
