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.

Staff was friendly, rooms were not bad. Rather good showers and toilets, but kitchen was very messy most of the time. The thing I liked the best was the sundeck, which was a nice touch. Internet was also good, had a decent connection in my room. Not a fantastic place, but not bad either.

Had a great stay at this YHA (and also the one round the corner - the YHA International). If you're trying to chose between the two, there's not really that much in it. Both are clean, well run, with really helpful staff. The other hostel (YHA International) did have the slight edge in the end, as it has a long-term... More

This YHA hostel like the other one in New Zealand are may be the best of backpackers. It's a kind of luxury backpackers. A big kitchen, lounge and a sundeck with a good point of view on the Auckland Skytower. It's situated on the top of Queenstreet and i can access by a lot of bus, and you have a... More

I stayed in this hostel for 1 week and was very impressed with the common areas, big kitchen with lots of cooking facilities and storage, large seating area, tv room and sundeck. The bedrooms were also excellent with single beds instead of bunk beds and areas to hang and store clothes etc. the staff were very friendly and helpful. The... More

many tourists come here just to arrange all the necesitties and leave.. so you will not feel much at home. Reception is professional, some more than others. Huge kitchen is partly not working but it is enough.. Big plus is the daily cleaning service which makes this hostel a comfortable place.

I only chose this hostel because Auckland was my first stop in New Zealand and I wanted to get information on how to get around, where to go, etc. However, the staff was unfriendly and uninformative. They told me to go get the information at the city's I-Site, and they didn't even know at what time it opened (great place... More

After 40 hours of travel from the UK we were so relieved to be greeted by a smiley face and free upgrade at the YHA. An experience which was repeated the second time we arrived in Auckland after touring the rest of New Zealand, proving that it wasn't just a one off!! The YHA is very convenient for the airport...

Good location & clean hostel. We were lucky to have a 5 bed dorm to ourself there was 3 of us. But only 2 electric sockets in the room & these were both right beside one of the beds....not great if sharing a room with other traveller's.
