We booked 4 nights on hostel.com and if we wouldn't have paid in advance we would have left early. Staff doesn't seem to be staff, just long-term stayers which are very demotivated and don't care about the hostel. That's the reason why the bathrooms are filthy and mould-infested and the rooms uncomfortable and frowsy. There was a huge window in... More

The worst part was he didn't apoglise or try and find a solution, he just sat there. After 40 minutes we got a single bed for two adults to sleep in and... More

Booked a 4 bed dorm which ended up being double booked, we discovered this when we checked in, got our key and went to the room! We were upgraded to a triple ensuite, staff were helpful in making sure we got a room all together. We were told a mattress would be put in for the fourth person. When we... More

On arrival there was a problem with our booking which was in no way our fault however we were made to feel as though it was our problem not theirs, after standing our ground they sorted the misunderstanding out eventually. I must say, I found one member of staff really friendly and polite he was a pleasure to deal with,... More

The room was quite tidy, and there was fans, but little bit hot during the daytime, moreover the kitchen was also hot but that was enough space to cook and eat so i was satisfied with this environment. The price was basically... More

I stayed this backpackers while I was traveling in Auckland. The staff were very friendly and the most good thing was a good location. There are also Korean staff so it was easy to make a reservation for me. The kitchen was so hot while I was cooking though....I didn't want to cook at the kitchen...

I had an awesome time there. Stayed for a week and was really happy with it. friendly staff and they actually clean the rooms. It is really central, with a supermarket and bars just around the corner and not even 2 minutes to the main street. Special deal for staying a week or month and free wifi.
