The bathrooms were really dirty. There was no soap and no washing up liquid in the kitchen.
This hostel is ok if you're looking for somewhere as a convenient base to explore Auckland as it's reasonably located. However the bathrooms could have been cleaner, and although the rooms had locks it was quite easy for anyone to walk into the hostel from the street. The staff could be a bit abrupt but generally had a helpful attitude. Free wifi was good. The light short-circuited several times in my room but think this was a temporary problem. The 'free breakfast' was extremely limited.
What struck me most was that most of the people in this hostel lived in the hostel - it was more a young professional dorm than a hostel. It meant that the long-timers were less up for meeting new people or for going out. They were nice enough - but a bit cliquey. Wifi was good - unlimited - which is apparently rare in NZ hostels. Location is at the top of the hill, which means going up and down into town is a bit of a workout.
Not enough bathrooms! Also fire alarm went off at 3am! Alright value though! Nice staff, but big language barrier!!
Really good location and comfy beds. Lack of forks in the kitchen which was bizarre. And no one on reception a lot of the time. Free wifi which is good and rare in NZ. Really clean showers
Great hostel in a good area just up from town and opposite the city loop bus. Lots of cafes, bars and restaurants around plus Asian supermarket a few doors down. Free wifi was pretty fast, free breakfast too. Small lockers and draws in rooms. I liked it here as is a smaller hostel so slightly more quiet which suited me. However nice balcony for eating and drinking as well. Would stay here again.
we were there for one night and it served our purposes well - just a quick overnight before heading out the next day.
The rooms were clean. Showers, kitchen and toilet not so much. The kitchen is really badly equipped. There is nothing to wipe or clean tables, there is almost no cutlery or plates. Staff was a bit moody.
Was a lovely hostel, great atmosphere, lots of long termers who were very welcoming and incredibly friendly! Charles on reception was super helpful and gave me info on so much stuff to do in the city! Thank you for an amazing time, I wish you all the best!

Only stayed one night but the owner was extremely friendly and helpful, helping me in many small ways and making a very nice atmosphere. He even traded me for my leftover currency at the end (I'm not sure he got a good deal so if he happens to read this -- thank you!). Besides that, the hostel had clean rooms, nice common area, strong wifi, and a good location near a lot of shops/restaurants & the airport bus.
