Not a bad hostel and a decent price! I'd have no problem staying again.
Very nice hostel to start you NZ experience. Staff is very nice and the hostel is clean. It's just a nice hostel to spend you Auckland time!
Bathrooms and beds weren't great, but the kitchen and computers available for use were very good. Also, the staff were fantastic. Knowledgeable and very helpful.
Lack of up keep made for a disappointing stay. Nice staff and nice backpackers but let down by expensive wifi, not very good showers and general lack of maintenance.
The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and pleasant, the facilities were ok (maybe renew some of them) and the location is ... center of Auckland ... I loved it to stay there!
My bed was dirty, full of hairs and looked like someone had been sleeping in it when i arrived. There were people that had been staying in the room for 6 months, the whole room was a total mess and had an unpleasant smell. There was only 1 shower working and it was dirty and covered in mould, the ceiling looked like it was caving in. It is a shame because the location is great and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It just seemed like they were under staffed to keep the place clean.

Everything was dirty and old... it's time for upgrades!
Far too loud at night with the street noise. Could not sleep most nights. Showers needs an urgent renovation, they are the worst on the 3rd floor. Staff is nice, and clean a lot, so most day the hostel is clean. Wi-Fi is too expansive, and so are the rooms. You can find what they are offering for cheaper. The best location, bus since all hostels are kind of close by its not really significant.
It's a not bad place to stay.However, the tolilet and shower clearliness could be improved more.
