The Good: Nice clean kitchen with good supply of plates, utensils, etc. I left my Kindle there and they promptly sent me an email to let me know. Convenient location. The Bad: The room itself left a lot to be desired. We paid slightly more for a double room. The room was very drab. The worst of it was that... More

Landing in New Zealand after 28 hours in a plane, I find YHA Auckland City the ideal place to recover. I have stayed here for Four of my last Five visits to new Zealand and have always found the hostel welcoming and friendly. I usually book a single room for the first two to three nights in order to get... More

I stayed here for one night with a friend while attending a concert in Auckland. If you're after a place that's pretty good, cheap, and conveniently located, I recommend it. If you're looking for something that's quite comfortable, check into a hotel. We stayed in a two person room on the highest floor and it was decent. The furniture was... More

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.
