I was staying there more than one week. The service personal is very very friendly and helpfully. But I have to say that the room are not the best, for example sometimes you have a safe which is not safe, and a bed which is very loud if you are moving.

We stayed in a double ensuite. The location of the hostel for the city is great. Our room had very little ventilation. The bathroom could not dry during the day, which meant is was very smelly.

If you are going to stay at the YHA in Auckland (I guess the YHA is not the best option there, I just stayed because the better hostels were fully booked) stay at the International, not the City one. I stayed at both and would definitely recommend this one.

I spent NYE there and found it adequate. There are good common facilities (kitchen, toilets, showers) and reasonably clean. The atmosphere is not too bad and you have some space to get to know people if that's what you want. If not, it is still okay - the place didn't seem like a teenage party hostel.

It is not too far from the city centre and there is a free bus that take you to the nearest supermarket. The bedrooms are not too bad but my mattress was very thin and the noise from the street was loud. An average hostel but okay for a night.

The place is ok for a night but reminded me of university halls of residence. Very noisy rooms, the beds are not really long enough for an adult over 5 foot eight, the room was not cleaned in a week we were there, also no where to hang wet towels etc in the room or anywhere else. The staff don't put themselves out to accomodate you.

Good location and very good kitchen facilities, nice and light in the kitchen area with big windows.

Stay there for 2 nights, in 4 mixed-share room. Room is small. Kitchen, toilet and shower room is clean.
It is very close to restaurant, i.e. plenty of Asian food, Korean food! Supermarket is nearby, good downtown window shopping!!

Hi backpackers.
Our advice:don't stay in this one.it is a dirty place with useless staff.Double room $95 per nt-smelly and dirty bed clothes,one male toilet on the whole floor,no free internet,no free breakfast and every morning at breakfast followed by nasty a little chinesse woman who was checking on us if we didn't steal food...5* hostel????5* my a..!Only reason why we stayed in this smelly place was that we booked 3nts over internet and we payed before we saw room because we're so tired after long flight from Dublin.So pls don't do the same mistake as we did...Good luck

Excellent place for many reasons. The place allows 24-hour check-in, and I checked in at 1:30AM. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. It's a bit of a walk to the Auckland attractions. For the price, definitely look to stay here.
