Good little hostel in a nice little spot. Got a bed, locker and lock, boom! Some weird roomies, but hey, that's always hit or miss when living the hostel dream right? I probably won't go back as the atmosphere wasn't mind blowing. It failed to provide me with the social pampering I long for. Maybe it was upstairs where I never bothered to venture. But whatever, good spot.

The kitchen is too small. Only one person at a time can cook, so you waste a lot of time waiting for people to finish their cooking. Fridges and kitchen should be more clean, if you look the top of them, there's so many dust. The party atmosphere is great but after some hour it should end so that everyone can sleep: the walls are thin and you can hear everything.

Extremely friendly staff (treat you almost like family!), short walk down into the centre of Auckland Roof terrace makes a great place to meet people Free wi-fi is excellent, free breakfast of toast/pb/jam and free coffee and tea throughout the day Facilities basic but kept very clean and secure- Would absolutely stay here again!

It was a good hostel. They taking you into the room and show you where the facilities are. The room was good, clean, you have a personal locker which is good. They can keep your luggage, your mail, the wifi is working well. It was a good deal, they are only 10 minutes away from CBD. I recommend this place.

Arrived early in the morning from flight into Auckland, only to find that hostel was closed, we had to sit on the street for an hour until a cafe opened, then another hour until the hostel opened. When we booked the hostel online, we stated that we would be there at 6:00a.m. Not very nice to have to sit on the street for 2 hours after a 14 hour flight with out any warning from staff. The bathrooms had mould and mildew on the walls, also there was a club underneath, so don't forget your earplugs!

It'd be wonderful if we can watch the TV in the public area

I had a very good experience at K Road. It was as expected except the beds were extremely squeaky! If you move even slightly on your bed, it makes a hell of a noise! (And I'm a lightweight guy!) The Vietnamese housekeeping lady is very very sweet! I tend to sleep in a bit too late and she always woke me up with a smile on her face. :)

It was great for one night. The wifi is great, and the computers are a good asset too. The bathrooms and rooms are clean but the kitchen is a bit gross. Not much of a kitchen either. Staff are efficient and willing to answer questions about buses etc. My one thought about the rooms would be it would be good if they provided some storage for things, like shelves and hooks and things. Otherwise everything is on the ground.

The hostel is well located (25 mins walk from the ferry and 5 mins walk from the main street: Queen st). Unlimited free WiFi and free breakfast including bread, jam, butter, ham, tea and coffee. I was in a 3 beds room big enough to store everyone's suitcases but a bit noisy as facing the main street. The room and toilet are not very well cleaned. Carpet not hoovered on a daily basis and toilet bins always full. No bed lights. Very small kitchen with only an electric cooker available.

This is a great hostel to stay in. Staff are really friendly and always happy to help. There is a great vibe at this hostel. The backpackers who have been here for a while are really friendly and always invite new people into the circle of friends. The outside deck upstairs in the hostel is a great place to hang out and meet new people. The free WIFI and Breakfast is a great bonus.
