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

This hostel is a great example of "you get what you pay for" and we didn't pay a lot. The location is fine - yes, it's up a steepish hill at the end, but it is quite manageable and not far from the Auckland CBD. Staff at reception were friendly. We were booked into a three bed dorm. The room... More

No heating and the complete hostel was f***cold! Even though I got a second blanket, I needed to go to e.g. fast food restaurants to get warm. Nevertheless quite good location (bus stop is near), its clean, has nice and helpful staff, free WiFi for members only (which actually did not really work either). Big kitchen, many showers. For summer... More

Upside - Good location being close to Queen Street, though that hike up from City Road is a killer! Slept in a 6-share which was pretty quiet. Free and fast wifi makes everything better! The staff were nice, but not overly friendly or helpful. Downside - It was one of the more dirtier YHA's I had stayed at. The 6-share... More

It is a good place to stay they have a wide selection of rooms, a big kitchen with a lot of room but with a major washing issue. Nice room, friendly staff, free wifi though quite a boring vibe no real connection with other guest since its such a large operation it is very impersonal.

This was the first hostel i visited in New Zealand, it had very tidy rooms, a good kitchen, free wifi all over the building and a 24-hour reception. The thing that bothered me was that the atmosphere was quite dull and nothing was really going on at the hostel.
