When we first checked into this hostel - we had gotten a 10 share mixed dorm. We walked in and immediately had to hold our breath. It stank really badly - like someone had been in that room for weeks without showering. Thankfully, a staff member understood completely and happily upgraded us to a 4 share en suite - which...

I've had a great stay at Nomads Auckland. I stayed in a double ensuite which was basic and clean. The hostel is located in the heart of the ciry so everything you need is nearby (shops, attractions, restaurants, bars and public transport). Staff was very helpfull and friendly. Would def stay here again :-)

Hostel was decent, showers were clean and the beds were okay. Kitchen was also there. Nothing really wrong with this hostel but it does not add anything to your experience either. They do have a restaurant right next door, which is nice if you want to grab a quick bite. You get discount if you stay at this hostel

I stayed in two different rooms here and both had their pluses and minuses. First room was a front corner room - it had two HUGE windows which not only offered great views, but also great air flow. The room was a good sized 6 bed with lots of room to move around. Downside? Only two working power sockets located... More

After seeing some negative reviews I thought I better give my opinion! This is the first hostel I have stayed at in NZ and I was impressed! I stayed in a private double with a bathroom and was pleased to see the room was clean and had enough space to keep mine and my boyfriends things. The wifi was free... More

Carpets are stained, smelly and worn through. Bathrooms are hairy. Door handles have never been wiped down. dorm room is super small. No free breakfast or dinner. No outlets. Beds are squeaky. The only good thing is the location.

I stayed at Nomads Auckland for 2 nights in june 2015 and I had a great time! The building is quite clean and there is some nice feature to the hostel such as a spa, a sauna and an amazing bar upstairs! We had a private room with our own bathroom which we really appreciated and there was plenty of... More

The first time I stayed here I was in a really small 8 bed dorm which was pretty rubbish. Only 1 plug socket was working for 8 people. The bathroom was flooded which meant the carpet outside was wet and smelly. This was on floor 2. However, the next time I stayed I was on floor 4 which was much... More

After flying from Manchester UK to Auckland, my partner and I wanted somewhere clean and comfortable to get over our jet lag. We were also aware we only had one week in Auckalnd so wanted to have a central location to make the most of our time there. We decided to book a private room, we didn't want our jet... More

The first night we had a 12p dorm, which was fine. The matrasses where a bit thin. After that we had the 4p with ensuite! That one was great, it was clean and we had 2 windows with a fun people watching view. We even had a towel with a little soap piece on our beds! Would recommand this hostel... More
