This hostel has a great location near the city center, the staff is very friendly and the facilities are very clean. There are many bathrooms, showers and sinks, I never had to wait to use anything. The kitchen is a little small though.
Very friendly staff. They gave me 15% discount for no reason. Beds are comfy but possibly a little small (I am 194cm). Two plugs per person per bed. Modern facilities (by hostel standards). Great showers. Very clean in general. Sky TV with Sports & Movies. You can stay as long as you want. Free internet Cons: TV room & kitchen are in the same room so it's ridiculously loud and you can't hear anything or anyone without shouting - so it's very hard to relax when not in you are not in your dorm
Really really nice Hostel! :) great location and very clean. I really enjoyed my time here.
There are a lot of people who live here so not so much of an opportunity to meet other people who are currently just travelling.
One of the best hostels I've lived in, it was absolutely clean. Toilets are individual not in a shared setting. Wifi was fast as well! Enjoyed my stay.
Fantastic staff, were totally cool about me wanting to change to bottom bunk. Facilities were the best I've seen in NZ, north to south. Though there are lots of long-termers, they're super friendly and welcoming. Great atmosphere. Lounge is a bit small, but that's alright. Very cool place, definitely recommend.
Hostel okay for one night, but not very nice. The 8 beds room was small and there was no window in it. Would not come back.
Great hostel. The only thing I cannot figure out is why there's only one toilet marked Ladies, two for men and two that are gender neutral. Women spend more time in the bathroom and a lot of women (including me) hate using the men's toilet when the others are occupied.
It was my first days in Auckland and it was a good election to choose this hostel. It's in a good location, in the center but not noisy. Friendly atmosphere, everything was clean and the wifi there works very good. Althought many people is living there, you can meet some travellers :).

Free wifi was great, you can also borrow a towel, staff is nice. It's kind of far from the busstop, there are to many longterm people, no place in the fridges, kitchen is too smal. Showers were great!
The hostel was very clean and the staff were accommodating. It's not a party hostel but more of a working hostel - which is fine, because that's what I was looking for.
Very good value for money, good location, staff and other residents very friendly.
