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).


Très bonne ambiance!! Patron super! Quand on débarque tout juste, c'est le top, on s'y sent comme en famille. Je recommande vraiment ce backpack.

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

Owner was very friendly... Place had a great feel seemed like a great backpackers lovely people.


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.
