Great location but can be noisy until late due to surrounding bars. Great views from kitchen (top floor). Rooms clean and tidy.
First day we left our room, when we got.back our bags had been ripped open and some moneh taken. We were in the 12 bed dorm on the same level as the laundry so everyone had access to floor and people left door open as it was 'warm' in the room. Staff were very kind and swapped our room for no extra cost and rest of stay was uneventful....sad people stealing from.other backpackers.
No free luggage storage facilities. Laundry is insanely expensive Doubt that rooms comply with fire regulations. 8-bed dorm is approx. 4.5m X 4.5m. With all the luggage on the floor it would be very hard to get out if there was a fire. Does not seem safe.
Great location and facilities. However, due to it's size, it's harder to meet/talk to other travelers ( in comparison to smaller hostels) Friendly staff and same price as other hostel in the area;
really enjoyed our stay recently during the Springsteen gig! clean, cheap and great location cheers guys!!!
Excellent location. Large backpacker hostel so dnt expect any home luxuries that you'd get at a smaller indie hostel. Staff on training were friendly and helpful. Always smiling! Night guy was helpful! Bar attached was just as expensive as any other on the road, if not more, so not appealing for backpackers! Beds were comfy and showers/bathrooms very clean!
The housekeeper on my floor was so thorough that she was cleaning the walls when I arrived. Impressive. Co-ed bathroom was spotless. Kitchen became crowded easily and most pots pots and pans need replacing. Friendly front desk staff. Excessive street noise on weekend nights, as it is near multiple bars and clubs. Bring earplugs.
Very good hostel, great location, very clean. The only bad point is that it's a dry hostel. Meaning you have to sneak alcohol in, the bar on site is good for a few beers too.
I stayed there for 3 months so now I kinda know those guys very well! Of course I had an amazing time here, especially thanks to the superb common area (kitchen, jacuzzi) on the outside rooftop (7th floor). You have to know it is a huge hostel, so things happening all the time, and not so quiet. Also, a bit expensive and the facilities are not great (just two plugs in the 10-beds dorm, blankets very occasionnaly changed), but large common area and very clean bathroom. Location is awesome!
Great, no complains at all. Good staff, a few activities, good facilities, all what you can ask for in a hostel. Really happy with my stay!
Awesome location, with a really cool bar/restaurant on the 1st floor. And a kitchen/outdoor/spa area on the roof. It's a very bog hostel which leave you feeling a little bit like you're in a hotel, but there's a good vibe about the place with a travel shop for advice downstairs and some good food place's down the street.
If your room's looking over the courtyard, unlucky! Very little sleep because of too much noise from the bar downstairs. Was in a great location, generally secure but no lockers in rooms. Facilities were ok and it was mostly clean. I wouldn't stay here again
Very frendly and helpful staff
Decent hostel until I went to checkout. During checkout I asked to leave my suitcase in the luggage room. The lady at reception told me the luggage room was not open yet, but that she would transfer it for me. When I returned to the hostel later in the afternoon to retrieve it it was still in front of the reception counter! They were so busy that i rolled it away and none of the staff even glanced at me! Fail. UNBELIEVABLE! I am extremely lucky. Not staying with Nomads Auckland again!
Quicker check-in system needed, took ages and we didn't even have to queue ! Seen large queues there out the door almost every day. Bed was very uncomfortable and room wasn't very spacious.
Much dirty and my card didn't work many times.

The staff couldn't help us with parking when we arrived and the kitchen was very cramped when busy, but otherwise this is an excellent hostel by the harbour front of Auckland. The connected bar and daily hostel-run events are very cool too.
I stayed here for 4 days. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was great. Would stay here again for sure!
I stayed here twice while I was in New Zealand. I was upgraded the first time from a 10 bed to an 8, and the second into a private room to myself. Staff were always helpful and friendly, despite having worked all night! It is clean and close to everything. I would definitely recommend.
pretty standart hostel in the city centre, u feel like one of a thousand and you wount get to know anyone....
