We came and stayed in this hotel in oct 2013. All rooms are really small but pretty and tiny. You have cases under your bed where you can store your luggage. The room price was cheap too, so that you can not ask more.

I was staying in Central Auckland at Nomads Auckland. Reception Staff were really friendly and helpful, room was really clean and tidy and the bed was awesome. Yes its a hostel, but I had my own private room with a tv and bath room. It was awesome. Would recommend to everyone to try out this place. Cheers to the crew... More

My friend and I shared a private ensuite. We were out on the town all night. Arriving back to the hostel, despite the early hours we were welcomed warmly by the frontline staff. I'm so pleased we chose Nomads Auckland. We had an awesome stay. THANK YOU FOR HOSTING US :)

Great hostel. Fun and friendly staff, very helpful. Clean and tidy, perfect location in the center of Auckland close to all the shops and bars. Not noisy either. Right next to the sports bar, so perfect for watching the World Cup footy!

The hostel is right in the middle of the CBD, very close to shops and restaurants. Staff is very friendly. There is a free spa and sauna to use. The kitchen is on the roof top which is awesome, this way you cook and eat with that amazing view. I'm in a 6 bed dorm and the room is very... More

We stayed for one night in a 12 bed mixed dorm, don't think we could have hacked anymore than that! The hostel is in a great location, just off Queen street very handy can't be beaten I don't think. The room we stayed in smelt of sweaty feet which was pretty vile but never mind. The main problem was the... More

Very busy hostel- front desk and foyer always busy with people in and out. Beds were decent, my room smelled a bit i believe it was because many people staying were long-term (i.e comfortably sloppy) or working for accommodation. My room was on the first floor, which I was glad for since this place has 7! However, I also found... More
