City Traveller's is close enough to the center of Auckland to make walking to the main attractions easy enough and convenient to enjoy the nightlife as well. Yet it is different from your mainstream hostels in the city center in that it provides a sense of calm and subtle sense of character.

Rooms are neat, clean and comfortable. We were lucky enough to get a back-packer discount at the sky tower just by showing our City Travellers' key! That was a sweet sweet surprise indeed!

I came in Auckland with my best friend in october 2010, i took this hostel because of the price and the location which is perfect because the hostel is not located directly on the main road but just 5 minutes walk, nearby without disturbance. People who's saying that the hostel is disguting or dirty exaggerate, it is not perfectly clean but every single ''hostel'' in Auckland is the same and even worse. I've met beautiful people and had awesome parties on the fif floor ! I have found love in City travellers, an english guy who wd absolutely agree with my comments (he stayed more than 5 months so ...) Guys at the reception are good mates, helpful and friendly. All this hostel is friendly so do not have any hesitation going to CT !!! to Ranz & Ahmed >>> love u guys & love City travellers ! Gaelle - France

We were generally impressed with this hostel. We being three 20 year olds in Auckland for 3 nights for a concert at Vector. The room was basic, and a bit outdated, the photos on the website are definitely a few years old. The bench on the kitchenette was marked and burnt, and the bathroom could've been cleaner. On the other hand, you get what you pay for and for $80 per night for the three of us we certainly weren't complaining. The location is great, just a few blocks from Queens St and just around the corner from Vector Arena and we all slept really well- we had a room off the street, so were lucky with the lack of traffic noise. Also when we asked for a triple room we were expecting at least two of us to be sharing a bed, so were pleasantly suprised to find three single beds lined up in a row in our room- kinda cute.

Overall this place is very basic but very cheap, and would suit groups of young people well.

PS the website's claim that they have flat screens in every room is a blatant lie ;)

Many thanks for your review and look forward to welcoming you back soon, unfortunately we do have flat screen in the majority of our rooms, however due to thieves we have had 4 taken from our rooms of which one of the rooms is the one you were in, but we have now much better tv's in the rooms from your last visit so look forward to having you back soon.

Hard to find any Pro's about this hotel, booked it for the rate of $350NZD for a 5 nights stay.. A musty smell met us in the lobby and i were taken to our room on the first floor. A very strong curry smell met us as i got out of the lift, now l dont mind curry but by god not 7am the smell.. i couldnt stay there even if i was paid to.. the door to my studio i couldnt get it to lock from the outside only locked from the inside i didnt feel safe leaving any of my stuff there.... im not a posh dude but i do have limits... i think it would be safer to live on the street.. The room was bad, dirty windows, dirty curtains, when i got there i ran into the internet cafe next door and booked a hotel for that nite... when i went back an told the guy on the desk if i could only stay here for one nite, not that i was going to... i was hoping for some money back, but to my desapointment he said he couldnt give me any money back, so i told the guy i was moving out to a freinds house... so i just moved all my gear out to the lingham hotel.. it really put a disapointment to my stay in auckland... i also seen a sign at the front desk if i lose my key there is a $40 dollar charge.. well guess what i still have the key they are not getting it back, they made enough money on me to afford to make another key and my credit card is cancled so screw you city travelers... the pictures on the site must be of another place its not what i seen

As discussed with you at the time each room has a kitchen and photos are of our rooms 104 & 308 so this our property and your room was identical to that of the photos only was not roadside. You were advised reasons behind no refund and moving from a 2 star property to the Langham Auckland a 5 star hotel well thats a good comparison isn't it.
