I spent one night when I first arrived in Auckland at QSB and that was enough for me. Yes it has a great central location right on Queen Street, but there are many other hostels in Auckland that are also central. The room was a 6 person dorm, and like most older buildings that are now hostels it was pretty... More

Great location in the heart of it all, free internet is great and the place was basically clean. Can be a noisy place depending on where you stay with some of the front facing rooms directly above a noisy bar or a takeaway. Slightly old-school furnishings and smells of smoke due to the doorway design onto the street. Good basic... More

A perfectly placed hostel in the heart of Auckland. We stayed for a few nights and although the rooms are small, its location and other services make up for it. The shower facilities work fine, and there is great internet access as well as comfy sofas for films etc. Laundry facilities are also available

I will definitely NOT be coming back to this hostel. Not only was there no hot water, everyone smokes at the front door which makes the reception and lounge area fill up with smoke - Difficult to breathe and my clothes reek. The bed blanket smelt of bio, and the hostel is in dire need of renovation. Everything is old... More

I stayed in Qsb over a number of months as a long term guest and had a great time there. I met some amazing people there, both the staff and fellow travellers. Staff are friendly and helpful and have a good knowledge of New Zealand and helped me to book my trip around New Zealand with extra hints and tips... More

Great location on Fort st. right in the middle of town and near everything. Free Wifi that is rare for Auckland, staff are friendly and helpful mostly kiwi so have good knowledge. It has a pool table, two kitchens, TV and playstation. Great place to stay for the weekend or long term and by far the cheapest place in Auckland.

I was there for 3 days 2 nights in a single bedroom. The room was ok but there is no table in the room so i have to leave all my stuffs on the floor. I like the location of the backpackers and i think this is the only backpackers that provide free unlimited wifi in Auckland.

Pros: - great location Cons: - very noisy (there is a night club/ bar nearby with music until 4am) - toilets dirty (urine on seats and floors) - our food was stolen from the fridges and when we reported it to management they weren't very helpful
