Stayed here twice, once in a double room and the other in a 4 bed dorm. Both rooms were of a fair size and were cleaned to a good standard. Bathrooms also were very clean, and the kitchen was great, very big, clean and well maintained. Location great, just 5 min walk down the hill and you reach the centre....

The YHA in Auckland has everything you need and is well equipped (free Wi-Fi) but for the size of the hostel there appeared to be too few bathrooms. Staff were lovely, the mattress was a bit thin and heavy doors banging at night meant I didn't have that restful a sleep. Overall an OK experience and a clean hostel but...

We stayed here twice, and both times were comfy! The rooms were big and comfy (now they've changed the beds) with lockers that had charging points inside! The kitchen was big, clean and well stocked making cooking nice and easy! The location is great just off queen street but only a 10 minute walk to the downtown harbour! The only...

It's well placed - an uphill climb about 15 minutes from the CBD. If you're on the Skybus, go uphill for about 10 minutes. It's on a slope, so there was a lot of good exercise getting there and back. :) Lots of Korean and Chinese eateries nearby, with a small Asian supermarket across the street but lots of restaurants...

The kitchen is well equipped, and the bathrooms are clean, even if there could be more of them. Rooms have lockers with power points in them too, which is good. However, this is probably the worst YHA I have stayed in, either in NZ or Australia. I stayed here at the beginning and end of 2 months in NZ, and...

Nice place to stay - friendly stuff :) It is near the city center (5min). It is clean and they have enough space so you can also be for your own (if you want to of course ;-) ) for people travelling alone and do not need to have luxurios rooms, I totally recommend it!

Came here for two nights whilst stopping in Auckland temporarily. It's a decent hostel and all the facilities are good, there is a standard YHA Asian/elder crowd which makes the atmosphere a bit flat, and there's also a guy on reception who has no idea what he's doing haha

Overall cleanliness of the hostel was good. Staff were helpful and friendly as well. However, the place lacked a sense of 'welcome'. The kitchen felt like a school canteen and everyone was in their own world. Free wifi but always patchy - felt as if it was better without.

So myself and partner were awake super early due to jet lag, it's our first morning at the hostel so we were just looking at leaflets and trips and suddenly this kind man called venk who was manning the front desk asked if we needed any help. 45 minutes later we are full of knowledge and reassurance and that is...
