Very convenient location in downtown Auckland. Modern building with essential but at the same time comfortable rooms (desk and fridge). I was on the top floor with a very nice view. Showers/toilets very modern and clean and staff very helpful. Couldn't have asked for more.

The shared bathrooms and showers were always clean and I didn't have to wait to access either of the facilities. The staff are friendly, and the location makes it... More

This is a very practical and reasonable hostel. The elevator works fine to the 3 or 4 levels and the facilities seem to all be clean and in working condition. Doing well since "66 - year it first opened.
