Of all the hostels I have stayed at in NZ, Freemans is the best.
It's maybe not the newest or the most modern place, but it is very cozy and comfortable and the location is super. It takes around 10 minutes to walk to the city.
The kitchens are a bit small but it works, and they only have 3(?) bathrooms and 3(?) showers but since it isn't such a big hostel it's more than enough.
It's also quite cheap if you compare to other hostels in Auckland.
The tv isn't that good either but it works.
I would definitely stay at Freemans again!
