I was very torn between rating this YHA three stars and four stars. On the one hand, the rooms were comfortable and clean, and the kitchen facilities were good. For the volume of people staying there they had plentiful supply of plates, bowls, glassware and cutlery. The kitchen had enough sinks and microwaves and preparation areas so that there could...

Just stayed here for one night before flying to Australia. It is a great location close to restaurants and an airbus pick up. Also close to all of Queen Street amenities so we were able to walk everywhere. Rooms are basic, only 2 power points in a 4 bed dorm and the bathroom was a ways down the hall. Everything... More

Stayed here 2 weeks and I would have stayed longer, but the YHAs Auckland only allow you to stay in both Hostels altogether for 4 weeks. Overall the place is very clean and tidy. The common room and the kitchen is very light up with a big glass wall. As there are a lot of travellers coming through, there is... More

The YHA Auckland International accommodation is well-located, well-staffed en sufficiently equipped for a cheap stay near the city-centre of Auckland. The YHA Auckland International is really conveniently located in a side-street of the main Auckland avenue, Queen Street. The harbourfront is about a 15 minutes walk down Queens Street. A load of convenience stores and food establishments are surrounding the... More

We had never experienced hostel accommodation before and if this what to expect would thoroughly recommend to everyone. We are in the "seniors" category and found the fellow guests mostly much younger were very helpful and courteous to us. The hostel was clean, had good facilities and the staff, especially Shernice, extremely helpful. We were given a meal from fellow... More

I stayed 3 nights in the YHA Auckland International and loved every minute. The staff were helpful, friendly and efficient. The facilities were functional and comfortable. The hostel had everything I needed and more! It was safe and easy to find and the people I shared a room with were lovely.

I don't understand why YHA doesn't take better care of the property. The rooms were smelly, old and the bes not so comfortable. Everywhere is just too hot because of the sun. They need more plus in the rooms. Multi plug could be a sound investment. Bathrooms and kitchen clean and ok. Internet is free for member, but staff forgets... More

A clean and tidy hostel with friendly and helpful staff. This hostel is right in the centre, maybe only 10 minutes walk to the water edge. Surrounded by bars, restaurants and shops and 5 minutes from the tower. Very good wifi for members only. Great kitchen and laundry facilities.
