It was dirty, absolutely stark beyond normal hostels I've ever stayed at, and so loud! The staff were barely helpful, and the location is only acceptable for its proximity to the train station...and even that wasn't so close! Would never stay here again.

Stayed here for an All Blacks Game. Rather close to both Eden Park and the city centre.

Only issue is parking on street. Will definitely return because of central location and easy access with airport bus stop nearby. Good beds in our twin room!

Clean hostel, friendly staff and good security. Not much character but good for a one brighter. Be careful not to get a room on either of the two streets, it's a busy area with drunks screaming and shouting until the early hours.

Best hostel I've stayed in! Staff were very helpful and friendly. CCTV in all the public areas and secured key card entry to building so felt very safe. A quiet home like atmosphere, extremely clean and well maintained , very comfortably beds, spotless bathrooms & showers always had high pressure hot water. Ideal location close to city centre, museums. .ect. and excellant value for money . Highly reccomend this hostel

Excellent and very friendly hostel! Confortable and safe, with a big tv room, clean facilities and a helpful and friendly staff. Good location as well, just few minutes walk from the city, close to bus stops, cafes, bars... Easy access from the airport (the shuttle stop is just 5 minutes away). I would definitely recommend this hostel!

Very, very basic, not very comfy. The windows were old & thin --> it was pretty cold. Bathrooms not particularly clean. The staff seemed a bit unsure of how to run the place. All in all, would probably not return here.

I enjoyed staying at BK Hostel due to the location wise and cleanliness. Would like to stay there again in the future. Hope in winter or cold weather can provide heater for better comfortable. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

The place was clean. With card access and locks on every door it was pretty secure. I was able to get EVERYWHERE on foot from this hostel. It was conveniently located. Granted a few nights on the way home I was whistled at by a few unsavory characters on the street. But I never felt unsafe. It was a good clean bed for a good price. I would stay there again. But it is not a rowdy party kind of hostel.

I have no problem with the Hostel or amnagement there. My problem is that I booked for one person, myself. Your agency booked me as 2 persons so ahd to pay accordingly. This will be th last time I book On Line. Infuture I will ring a Hostel direct and do my own booking. Your booking information and form does not allow any room for asking if you are one or more persons. or if there is single room accom available. It only asked for dormitary or twin share. the hostel BK does not even have a dorm
