Spent only a bit of time in the hostel, rest was out exploring Auckland. Facilities were moderately clean, dorm rooms were a bit cramped though. Staff was super friendly and helpful! This was really a super average city hostel but would give it the thumbs up if you're staying for a few nights.

Was a big mistake staying here, the dorm had no room for your luggage just full of bunks. I doubt if it was legal to do this. The noise from the bar was awful, it just vibrated through the floor. The bathrooms were really unclean and the hostel had such a tiny kitchen which was not big enough for all... More

Stayed here for a night in an 12 bed dorm. Room was clean. Beds made. Toilets and showers plenty and clean. Kitchen is way to small and Bad equiped. Location is right in downtown Auckland. Very Handy. Good conection to Airport and public Transport. PS: try the burgers next door ;)

Stayed in a 10 bed dorm and it was appalling. There was barely a metre between each bed, nowhere to put your bags, some of the bunk bed ladders couldn't even be accessed because they were so close together. The room was stuffy and absolutely stank. It was dirty and stuffy and the bunk beds were such poor quality that... More

Spent quite a lot of time in this hostel and it's pretty average. The location is really good as its right in the middle of the city so attractions are never too far away and its pretty close to all the decent bars. The wifi is pretty horrendous and usually you have to sit in the corridors if you want... More

I was on the Kiwi Experience bus and Nomads was their guaranteed accommodation for Auckland. I was only staying for one night so I went with the recommendation and requested a twin room. I was in Room 515 and it was a small 'hot box' with no window and the oscillating fan was broken. Front desk did replace the fan... More

Really good rooms with comfortable beds, clean bathroom and tv (4 share). The kitchen is big so it fits the large number of people. It's situated at the top of the building which means that you have quite a view from the dining area, where you also have the possibility to sit outside. The staff has much to deal with... More
