I stayed here for two days and found that the accommodation had good facilities and it's close to town. It has the usual perks which I found useful: free wifi, good kitchen and bike storage. The only improvement would be some heating in the dorm rooms, as it was a bit cold at night.

I have never stayed at a YHA hostel before, and chose this one because the location was close to where I needed to be and the price was reasonable. The people in the reception were friendly, telling me all that I needed to know. My ensuite room was basic but (mostly) clean and tidy. The room I had was at... More

I have been travelling with YHA all these while. It is really clean and tidy as expected. The place is huge and have ample cooking space for everyone. Furthermore, the location is quite central to Queen Street. Service is warm and prompt. Would definitely stay here again.

Dear Fellow Travellors - this backpackers is clean, secure, well located and with all facilities. When last in Auckland we stayed at the City YHA which was equally well maintained. The International YHA had the benefit of parking which is best reserved well in advance.

Perfectly suitable for $30 a night – we shared a four bedroom dorm with two other girls each night and it was warm and quiet each night, except for the poor person who had to sleep by the door and to woken up by the hall light shining in every time someone got up and went out. The bathrooms were... More

Although from the outside this hostel looks similar to other YHAs, unfortunately it is not quite there for the price you pay. The four bed dorm we slept in was noisy as two of the beds were on stilts but not like bunk beds. If you even moved slightly, you were worried you would wake others in the room up.... More

I've stayed at this hostel many times as it's in a good spot and it's not a party hostel. The staff are always friendly and the rooms are generally always clean. Things are starting to fray around the edges and could do with some money spent fixing the place up a little but nothing major. The hostel does seem to... More

Sadly the worst YHA hostel I have ever stayed in. It is in dire need of refurbishing, everything is warn out and battered, the decor is very 90s. Not a great welcome to New Zealand after a days travelling. The bedding were not clean; heavily stained and smelling of sweat. The mattress was covered in hair. Anyone getting a private... More
