Last year we hired a car and stayed in BBH hostels all throughout NZ, but nothing, just nothing could compared with the atrocious behaviour of the managers in this hostel. Scott was so rude, he wouldn't let me discuss the problem I was having with my credit card as it was Easter, and a bank error. I know they need... More

I was arriving at midnight so booked a room through hostelworld.com. The owner, Scott picked me up at the airport for just $5NZD! I got upgraded to a very nice fullly-equipped motel room. Even fresh milk in the fridge for morning coffee! The place is a time capsule from the 1960's, like the movie "Blast From The Past". It is... More

Clean and simple property that is everything you need for a basic overnight stay before or after your flight. Nice location so close to the airport but in a lovely rural setting with food options close by. Booking process was easy and having a shuttle pick you up in the middle of the night is wonderful.

This quirky little backpackers was spotlessly clean and staffed by super friendly people who went out of their way to make guests welcome, and do airport pick ups and drop offs in the early hours of the morning. Very happy with this place, nice vibe and would transit here again.

We have been to all corners of NZ - and the service and friendly attitude at skyway sadly is becoming rare. We saw several instances ( in one night ) where the operator took all effort and care to provide help for travellers when all to often people just want rid of the question!. Well done and top draw location... More

Like other reviewers, I only stayed one night, though I would have been very comfortable staying longer. Main reason for choosing this hotel is its proximity to the airport, and pick up from the airport, so I didn't expect the ultimate in luxury. Room was spotlessly clean, and comfortable. The stand-out feature is the manager's friendly, helpful attitude. He really... More

This was a short and good stay for me. I was flying out of Auckland the following morning and didn't want the hassle of getting in and out of the city. The airport transfer provided by the hostel was cheap and fuss-free. My twin room was cosy and warm. The kitchen looked well equipped even though I didn't use it.... More

I have stayed there a few times, as i travel a lot and this is extremely close to airport. Plus for small fee they do pick up and drop off to airport, as well as safe car storage for a reasonable fee. There is a spacious lounge and open fire, big tv with some great movies. The kitchen is quite... More
