This hotel was a bit difficult to find, but in a pretty central location for what we wanted to do in Auckland. It was similar to a lot of backpackers I have stayed in but a private twin share room. We were shocked when our airport taxi was $80 to our accommodation, and he seemed to go the most direct route on a Saturday night at 9pm so pretty clear roads. The hotel website said $40 so double we were not expecting, suggest you take the airport bus. We stayed in a room with an ensuite with a very small bathroom, two single beds, one hard one soft. There is a fair amount of noise in the hallways and rooms so it is definitely more hostel than hotel like in atmosphere. The staff were extremely helpful, in all for the price and location it is a good place to stay and would recommend for the price but it is more hostel than hotel. On the plus side it is pretty clean.
