I enjoyed my stay here. It is warm, comfortable, clean and friendly. The kitchen is really well appointed and there are nice communal areas. The location is very central yet not noisy. Handy to the airport bus. I was attending a conference and needed a budget option and I am really pleased I chose the yha.

As a point of first stop contact because Auckland is a major airport this place was a tad annoying. Obviously a lot a lot of people stay here because it's a very large ex hotel. The front desk didn't have any of the YHA (tear off pad) maps of the city which was the first thing I asked for on... More

Hi Katey Thank you for the commentary on our hostel which I'd like to address in two parts. Firstly regarding the hostel experience, it is unfortunate we ran out of maps and you are quite right we could have called the other hostel to see if they had any. However we would not be able to have a staff member... More

Best hostel I found in Auckland. I messed up my booking by a day, and after arriving at 1am from a long flight, the guy even let me sleep in on a couch in the common room for the 1st night, many thanks for that. 4 bed Dorms are quite small, but I got a good 3 nights sleep. Large... More

The room was ok for 2 people, but the wifi wasn't working good. The place is nice and they have good equipment in the kitchen. I recommend this place for backpackers in your first days in new zealand.

The hostel was nice and clean but what let it down was the loud noise that went for about 30 mins to an hour about 3 or 4 times a day. Kept us up a bit in the night, can't even imagine what is was from, just a loud humming noise. We were on the top floor. They are refurbishing... More

It is basically as all YHAs that I already had been. Kitchen with some useful utensils for backpackers such as forks, knifes, spoons, pans, etc. and it is also big; the bed is nice and comfortable; there is a place to store your things while you don't go to your bedroom or while you don't leave the place. I recommend.

Really good hostel really cheap to be in Auckland. It was really good, i went here twice! toilets and showers are clean and beds are pretty comfortable. The location is good (even thought some other hostels have a better location, more central) but since the hostel is really good it didn't matter to me. People working there were nice and... More

It has all we need for a budget hotel. Simple and nice. Special thanks to the person on duty at Receptionist in the evening whom i approached, Venk.

Room was pretty basic but comfortable and the bathroom was clean with a great shower. The hostel was in a good location for everywhere we wanted to go. Wifi was super fast and free which was an added bonus. Staff on reception were friendly and helpful.
