Super clean and well organised hostel - compact room but provided everything needed - including fridge in room and plenty of sockets. Excellent value in city centre. Some reviews have complained of noise as it is next to fire station but I did not find it a problem.

Street noise outside can be a bit noisy, but then it is in the centre so worth putting up for the location. Not a very social hostel, but the room was clean and so were the modern showers and toilets. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Didnt use kitchen but the dining room didnt have much atmosphere. I was getting... More

I am sure this YMCA hostel will be great for some travellers or people just looking for a very short term stay in a comfortable and safe environment. It is in an okay location halfway between the Cbd and Ponsonby. The rooms are comfortable and have fridges which is useful. Bathroom facilities (like everything else) are immaculately clean. Some good... More

Dear guest, Thank you for your feedback.

Dear guest, Thank you for your feedback. We are investigating options, likely we will change the Laundry opening time to a later time, the shower you have used is due to renovation this year, therefore, tiles will be changed onto a non-slippery like all showers we have.

Clean, and great staff. Best hostel I have stayed at. Rec room was nice to kill down time, Along with the movie nights that are held Sundays. My room was upgraded to a single for no reason. There is a 40$ key deposit you will get back, but it is still steep. Wifi is available at a good price.

At first glance the building looks like a big old institution. But it was a pleasant place with windows that let in a lot of light. I stayed here on two separate occasions in a single room and a dorm. Very clean and comfortable beds and well maintained hostel with female only floor and separate showers. Rooms have a fridge...
