I haven't even checked out yet but I'm så annoyed that I have to get it up here. Would it kill you to put up a fan in each room? It's two o'clock and I can't sleep 'cause we're four people in a small room, hot weather outside and even though all the windows are open the only thing we're... More

Our private twin room with ensuite was small and mattresses were old but still comfortable... a little bit smelly from the restaurant next door. They have a large fully equipped kitchen and friendly staff. Now, what's the point of having magnetic cards to unlocked doors to upper levels if, at reception, you let people in that have no cards (so... More

Save yourself money, time and stress, stay somewhere else! Worst place to stay, excessive noise at night and early in the morning!!! Now one can forgive & forget the sour Asian girl on reception - one would think she's been eating onions or drinking sour milk! And even if she has poor listening skills...you can bypass this with life in... More

I wish I could write a fair review but my experience at both Auckland City YHA and Auckland International YHA was so terrible I can't justify it. First: The 4 bed dorm rooms are terrible (clearly small hotel room conversions), rundown, dirty carpeting, thin windows/walls (forget trying to sleep), not enough power sockets. I won't mention the inconsiderate dorm occupants... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in a 4 bed dorm. The room was just big enough and the beds were comfortable. The communal areas were good an the kitchen was well equipped with plenty of storage space. The location is really good. Not too far to walk I to the city but far enough so you don't get any... More

Stayed here twice, the first time at the start of my travels and the second towards the end. The first time I was told by the reception staff that the easy-as card had stopped. I then found out a few weeks later at another hostel it hadn't; therefore my accommodation was more expensive. The second time I ended up sleeping... More

Conveniently located, this is a good choice for the budget and location conscious. However, I found the cleanliness average and the sound insulation lacking as the noises from other rooms invaded my sleep multiple times throughout the night. Lacking a good sleep and required to start my journey early in the morning, I was rather restless the next day. Hopefully... More

A common or garden hose down hostel that functions perfectly as a cheap first night location after rocking up at the airport (it's conveniently located next to the bus stop). Don't stay here if you like meeting sociable people, parking near your accommodation, or doing interest things (Auckland is dull). Cheap and peaceful.

We had a great stay at the YHA International. The staff really couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating, we were most impressed. We'd arrived a few hours ahead of schedule very early in the morning, so were hoping to just be able to store our bags, and pass time till check in. The night duty chappie on reception was... More
