Spent 17 nights in this backpacker. Rooms are basic but clean and there is a fridge inside which is helpful. However, only one (very small) kitchen for all the building during most of my stay (the other was in renovation) so it was very difficult to find a moment to cook. Moreover, my room was near the kitchen and it... More

Dear guest, Thank you for your feedback. We are located in the heart of the city just 100 meters from Queen Street, our kitchens have been renovated and both now look great, we also close the kitchens at 11pm, to avoid noise issues, happy you find us to be nice, cheap and clean. Kind regards, Andre Vidoto More

As mentioned in other reviews, the single room is small and basic. It was good to have a desk, but my room was facing the main road so traffic noise was a bit of an issue for me, a light sleeper. The linen did not smell fresh too. I requested for a change of room but the hostel was full.... More

The hostel is clean Clean and good value for the price. It is very close to Auckland city center, with 5-10 mins walking distance. The staff is very friendly and they provide me the early checkin as my booking request. Overall, I enjoyed my stay there

I stayed in a single room for one night. I arrived early, but that was no problem, my room was ready for when I got there. The room was small but cosy, the toliets were just down the hallway and they were clean. There was a mini fridge in the room which was a huge plus, this made it better... More

I stayed for three days when I was attending a course. The rooms are basic but very clean. Needing to do a bit of work it was very handy to have a desk. The bathroom and toilet facilities were clean and well-maintained. There are some good value restaurants on Karangahape Road, with cuisines from right across Asia, as well as... More

I recently had the pleasure of staying in a single room for 8 nights at the YMCA in Auckland. Although the rooms are rather small and fairly basic, the bed was very comfortable, and the real bonus was the small refrigerator in the room. The shared facilities were absolutely spotless, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The general location... More

Value considering what you pay for and superior to other shared apartments in the city, nice location for city. Can be rather noisy late in evening with doors banging, neighbours opening stiff windows.

Rooms and bathrooms super clean, comfy beds, good location, nice reception area, nice and quiet at night. Only criticism is that kitchens are reasonably well equipped but very small for a place as big as it is which let's the place down a bit. Better kitchen and dining room would make it perfect.

Basic rooms but fitted my purpose. Sunny and warm with harbour views. I stayed in a female floor only, which was great. The kitchen extremely new, clean and tidy. Toilets and bathrooms spotless, reception very informative and helpful. Saw some reviews about parking but I didn't have any issues, in fact it was cheaper than many other places. Thank you... More
