I will never come here again . Smoking in non smokers section . People eating my food. Just uncomfortable totally . You get what you on for I suppose and I paid for cheap so that's what I got . I'm sick from the smoke and inconsiderate people here.

It´s an old Hotel that has, in part, been converted into a backpackers by putting bunk beds into the rooms. I booked my accomodation in Auckland pretty late and this was simply the only thing that was available short notice that I could afford I was not excited when I first waked in, staff at reception wasn´t exactly friendly and...

We left after 2 nights. The staff is downstairs in the hall and nonexistent in the hostel. This place needs some woofers to stay and check the facilities. The rooms are big and more or less clean but with just two outlets, lockers are big, the mattress is really uncomfortable, the blanket is thin and there is only bottom sheets... More

Clean spacious rooms, and comfy facilities, womens toilets, kitchen. Nice friendly atmosphere in the common area. Well located, close to the city centre and harbour. Only the receptionist was not too wellcomming or proffesional on my arrival. I was injured and she did not offer any help or sympathy.

I'm a single woman, I booked a 2 person dorm. I expected 2 single beds and to be sharing with another woman. The room was tiny, with a bunk bed. The lower bunk was occupied by a man. I went back at 11 pm to retrieve my suitcase as there was no way I was staying there, it was full... More

High price: they've charged me 50$ per night for a 6 bed dorm (I've talked to another guy in my room, he only had to pay 30$) I know Auckland it expensive, but not like this! Booked the room on the same day ("last second") because everything else was fully booked, so I had nowhere else to go... I normally... More

Short story; refer to headline. Long story, keep reading. Terrible layout of the rooms. There is a lounge of which three dorm rooms (one of which was mine) connect directly to the lounge. So you walk out of your dorm and straight into a busy lounge. And as you might imagine, people were chatting all the way until 2am last... More

Ok, I had a really good time travelling NZ for 1 month... But this was the absolute worst experience. Our room was just infront of the commonroom or shall I call it party room? So sleeping was not an option. The kitchen was mostly occupied by sparrows. Bathroom/toilets could have been better but in general ok. Bedrooms where clean! I... More

Enjoyed my stay at Station Backpackers. Lin and Kebede are really lovely people and very happy to help, Lin even went out of her way to save me money on a room at short notice. The room was good, great shower and free wifi. It can get a little noisy at times but that's to be expected. Supermarket and cafés... More

I was left by my tour bus somewhere in Matamata and was only able to check in past midnight. The hotel staff waited for me considering I'm 4 hours late so that I could check in after a very tiring day. If not for the noise as my room was near the common areas, it would have been very good.... More
