This is a good accommodation. The only things I can find missing, which is so minor is that it does not provide free parking.


Overall great stay! Room was a bit cold, glad I had brought my own blanket. Noisy busy street but to be expected downtown.


Friendly staff. Small, Clean and quiet hostel. Free wifi and internet access , Free breakfast... Would totally go again next Time i stop un Auckland , and totally recommand this place .


it was really a nice place to stay: located in city area, 2 minutes walking to air bus stop, clean and quiet environment, free breakfast and wifi, and staffs there are really ready to help and always are friendly. i already recommend it to my friend.

The wi-fi at this hotel is not compatible with a lot of laptops... including mine. If you have Windows XP on your laptop, beware! you'll be using the hostel computers (which have no privacy and are sort of dirty) instead of your own.


This is a really great place to explore Auckland from its just a short walk to Ponsonby and you cross the road to Queens Street. The airport bus also drops you about a minute from the hostel and picks up at the top of the street basically. Only draw back is that there are a few crazies lurking on K Road after dark but as long as your aware its fine :)


In a word, 'meh.' Decent location up on K Road, but place just seems very small and crowded, everything is quite tight, slightly dirty. Can't turn the corner without running into someone. The facilities are pretty poor to be honest. Staff was friendly.


Family run business with staff that could barely speak english and were not very helpful with tours and sightseeing. The 1st floor toilets don't have any windows and the lockers in the room were too small. The free internet and breakfast were poor and the kitchen is ridiculously small.. No 24h reception also.

Hi Pedro, thank you for your comment, but I remember that I have had a hard time communicating with you in English as it is my first language,sights have been recommended, also with tour companies, also I'm pretty sure that we are not the only hostel that does not have 24 hour reception, but things are well arranged. your reservation on your last day was not cancelled, which should have been charged, but we have not done so and allowed a free of charge late cancellation. thanks for your stay.


Kitchen was a mess, hostel is on second floor, very steep stairs, only one bathroom with shower per floor - only the free wifi is really a plus...

I'm really glad that I've stayed at K Road City hostel during my 4 day stay in Auckland. It's impeccably clean, has very friendly staff, and in a very good location for reaching the main city spots on foot. Make sure to meet Charles once you get there! He is a great person to talk to if you are having a problem or just for a friendly chat at the upper deck.
