My first stop after arriving in New Zealand was this hostel. I stayed for three nights and was a bit disappointed overall. It's not a bad hostel, it's just not a good one. The kitchen facilities are good and the place is airy. However that's where the positives end for me. The bathrooms were often dirty/smelly and there seemed to... More

Hi Thanks for your feedback as it does help us improve our services. YHA has strict standards in terms of the facilities we provide and we make sure every hostel has the right ratio of showers to beds. In peak season that can sometimes appear inadequate especially if everyone decides to take a shower at the same time. We'll pass... More

The staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are big and the bathrooms tidy. The only downside is the location: It´s quite a bit outside the city, especially to the supermarkets. I would still come back!

Thanks very much for your feedback and I will pass on your compliments to our staff. They love to hear when our guests are happy. In terms of our location, we are located in the city centre and while we are not close to a large supermarket there is local supermarket across the road from the hostel and a small... More

I had booked 2 nights in a 4 bed female dorm. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was easy to navigate. The shared showers and bathrooms were generally clean. The hostel staff are always friendly. Venk, the night guy when I had to check out late was super friendly and made being awake at 3am much more bearable.

Well situated, clean, safe, easy access from the airport, free parking. Employees are smiling and are helpful! Good for backpackers, lots of activities available. Prefer that one instead of the City one, less attractive and far much older!

Great hostel for if you're planning on travelling. Good location, great staff, big kitchen and communal area, loos and showers are clean, rooms are a decent size and aren't rammed with beds though mine did get really hot at night.

Good location - located just off of Queen Street, therefore easy to get to most places in Auckland. Room was comfortable, the staff were helpful, the kitchen was very big. Lots of leaflets etc. to help you make your way around NZ if you'd just arrived (Auckland was my last stop so didn't make use of them, but looked like... More

just a budget accommodation. Everything was just okay to stay for a night. LThe location is not too far away or not too close from everything. I stayed ensuite with bathroom and no view since the window is so tiny.

Average hostel in a central location. The staff were helpful. The kitchen was quite big with enough fridge space for all. My room was a bit boxy with only a small window near the ceiling, which made it quite stuffy.

Stayed here couple of time during my visit to New Zealand. I went for this hostel based on reviews I read before booking and I must add the reviews were right and perfect. My every need was fulfilled in terms of stay, travel assistance and several other related stuff. It also had a great location.
