With the exception of a kiwi lady, the staff on the front desk are terrible. More concerned with watching TV oheret eir laptops and playing games. If you try to book a room, check in, buy a drink or generally ask for any information you will have to wait an age and be treated like a major inconvenience. My room... More

Very cetral location right in the heart of auckland however this meant that at the weekend it was impossible to get any sleep due to the. Ouse from the neighbouring bar which went on until after 4am. He rooms are fairly small and the common areas are not exactly inviting. Hostel had free wifi but was very slow. Overall was... More

This hostel was conveniently located and had free WiFi but that's about where the good ends. The rooms were dark, and my sheets had a dubious stain on them - and when I asked for a clean set, these had a similar stain! Not what you want to have to sleep on. I wouldn't come back here.

This backpackers only has two things going for it - location and partying. It is walking distance from Queen street and the tourist areas of Auckland. Restaurants and supermarkets are nearby. You have a pub downstairs and other bars are just a stone's throw away. If you are a party animal who like to get drunk and socialise, then this... More

I stayed at QSB two nights; one in December and the other one in Janurary. The backpackers is right in the city center and very close to one of the big supermarkets; it is very close to all the touristy bits in Auckland and most importantly it is quite close to the sky city coach terminal. The backpackers itself is... More

I think the manager is a very bad man! The people who work there don't care one bit. Confirmed reservations are not made. Very impolite, nasty. They are extremely argumentative and take simple requests as slights. Don't bother going to this place if you wish to be respected at all.

Once we arrived the lady at the desk was not pleased to see us and very unwelcoming. Now I have stayed at many hostels before but this was something else. I wouldn't recommend staying here unless you were wanting to have NO sleep because you are partying because of the clubs/bars below the building. Yes I have been to hostels... More

Although far from luxury, this large backpackers hostel was exactly what we wanted - cheap, central and friendly. Could perhaps have done with a lick of paint in places. There were plenty of shops and restaurants on the doorstep making this good for a city stop.

I'll get right to the point. This place is terrible! Stay away. There are plenty of better options for the same price. To begin with, we were met at reception by a 16 year old looking kid, who didn't at all take the effort to even seem enthusiastic. When we asked about the $5 cashback when you show an Airbus... More
