JUST SLEEP ON THE FLOOR AT THE AIRPORT!!! My friend and I stayed here one night for a layover and they didn't even give us keys to our room that worked. The place is dark, dingy, and disgusting. The staff are terrible and the price of the hostel is NOT WORTH IT! The shuttle costs $5 each way - their is NO FREE SHUTTLE! Trust a fellow backpacker they is relatively low maintenance and stay ANYWHERE else!


Hostel is in a good location to the airport, $5 transfer (and a $5-6 bus to Auckland City) NO LOCKERS in the dorms at all, we stayed in the 7-bed and my girlfriend had her purse stolen because of it (thousands of $$ spent on her cards too). There was a definite theif in the room (she was acting really suspicous) and we stayed on high alert the whole time - she was a local and no luggage - suspicious? YES. Average facilities that you'd expect anywhere. Itchy, unwashed wool blanket too.

I only stayed for one night and the hostel is perfectly fine if you're just planning on an overnighter to get somewhere early the next day. No lockers though!
