Old-fashioned and not well maintained backpacker. Could be perfect with new paint and cleaned. Two kitchen quit small but correct because there are not so much people. Confortable living room. Facilities are neither clean nor dirty (could be better but it’s fine). Large and clean double room with several furniture to put our stuffs. Free Unlimited Wifi in Nz is... More

Paying just over NZD70 a night for a private twin room, we were overall pleased with our stay. The rooms were warm, showers hot & wifi reliable (& complimentary). However, the beds were really narrow (lucky we weren't any larger). We were out both nights so didn't go into the kitchen/dining area.

We stayed here over a week to prepare our start with our work and travel visa. The place itself is pretty nice, the rooms are clean enough and the bathrooms are cleaned everyday. The kitchen is rather small so it can be full of people specially when it´s dinner time. What I liked the most about this place is the... More

Stayed for 2 nights and that was more than enough. It is quite close to Ponsonby which has nice bars and restaurants, however it is quite a walk into the city. The wifi in our room was very good which was a positive. The building itself is in desperate need of a facelift. The shared bathrooms are not nice at... More

This was my first backpacker in New Zealand and I was so disappointed. I booked a while ahead and for a single room and paid more than other backpackers, due to good profile here.... But was actually disappointed... the room was fine but it constantly stank from the cooking in the kitchen. The kitchen looked clean on first impression but... More

A nice hostel in a great location. Only a short and easy (impossible to get lost) walk to the city centre, but far enough from the traffic noise. The staff is friendly, although it was sometimes hard to find them as there's no real reception. The rooms we stayed in were all in all clean but a bit dusty and... More
