Pretty central, good rooms and friendly staff!

Good hostel where I stayed one night. The location is pretty nice and quiet, especially practical if you have a car. The beds were nice, the one hour free wifi worked perfectly. It's small and cosy. Only "annoying" thing was the fact that the cleaning team was cleaning the kitchen before check-out time, which made it kind of a challenge to use the kitchen before checking out.

You have to pay 50ct for 6min hot shower and wifi is relatively expensive. There is a big kitchen and you can use the fridges and geht a box for your food. The sitting room can be really cold because the doors to the outside are opended over the day so sometimes its torquey. It's 90% french people even the owner is a frenshman. But although most people only speak french in there everybody is nice and matey and if your in a luck they will even talk to you in english :-D had a good time there

Beaucoup beaucoup de francais a l'auberge... sympa pour faire rapidement des rencontres et se faire aider dans ses demarches.. mais a eviter si votre but est d'apprendre l'anglais! A eviter aussi si vous apprecier les auberges propres et bien entretenus.. mefiance aussi, le prix n'est pas cher, mais vous avez plusieurs trucs payants (douches, internet).

Nette und freundliche Menschen dort. Eine Menge Franzosen dort, was aber wiederum nicht stört wenn man neue Leute kennen lernen will.

Borders Beyond looked to me a Home right after I first stepped into the kitchen/living room, where other people where living their stay as house mates. It does not feel to be in a pack and go, fast and busy place, it got atmosphere!!It is not a huge hostel, therefore allows for quiet living. David, the owner, is super nice and helpful, making is very easy to arrive to a totally new place and settle down as if having been there all the time. Definetely the place I'd call Home in Auckland.
