I arrived at this backpackers, went to my room, checked out the kitchen and bathrooms. Then I went down to reception and asked for my money back. It was not nice, the rooms look nothing like the pictures. They are cramped, dirty and the whole building has a damp, dank, mouldy smell. I have stayed at many backpackers during my... More

It's a very cheap hostel and the rooms and communal areas are very clean. It's quite a party hostel with many long term workers who enjoy a few games of beer pong most evenings. Whilst I enjoy having a few beers, the communal area was next to my dorm and as the doors are quite thin, quite a lot of... More

I stayed here for 1 month in a female 4-bed dorm as I was attending a course at Uni and I have to say I was lucky to have found this place. It was quiet, only a few get-togethers and drinking parties in the common area during weekends, most of the people who were staying here lived there quite permanently... More

This hostel was a great place to stay for a few nights in Auckland. The hostel itself still looks like a hotel and is very homely looking. I stayed in a four bed dorm which was extremely small, which didn't bother me, but if you are staying for a long time you may want to ask for a bigger room.... More

And also walking distance from Ferry Building where you can catch the Air bus to and fro airport. Staffs are also friendly, do let them know your need/request and they'll... More

This is a small and pretty laid-back backpackers. It is a good place to relax. The dorms are quite nice and confortable, but the beds are shaking, noisy and probably not srong enough. They have nice and big lockers but as it is with a code, each time you open or close it you will wake your neighbor. Bathrooms are... More
