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

I stayed in a 12 person dorm room. The room had lockers for our stuff. However, it was very cramped and absolutely stank of mildew. It was only cleaned (vacuumed/garbage emptied) once in the four days that I stayed there. My blanket was stained and ripped; I saw them change other bedding in the room, and FYI, they do not...

Me and my partner were backpacking and came to stay at this hostel back in Febuary. We came in person to book a 2 night stay (private double room) with them as we were staying up the road but they could no longer accomodate us. The following day we arrived and we were advised that our room had not been... More

Myself and a friend stayed here twice when in New Zealand. It's nice enough, pretty standard and clean as well. The rooms were good sizes and there were a good amount of showers and toilets per floor. The only problem was that the kitchen was a state, but on our second visit it wasn't so bad so I guess it...
