Stayed in a 10 bed dorm and had the worst night sleep I've ever had. I did book for 2 nights but left after the first night. The bed had graffiti all over it and had wooden slats missing, making sleep practically impossible. This seems to be a party hostel full of young males talking about local prostitutes and strip clubs, I felt very uncomfortable. I wouldn't recommend this place.

Hi there, thank you very much for your review. Our large dorm rooms get quite full at this time of year and the space is not that big unfortunately. We will follow up on the missing slats and removal of the graffiti. Unfortunately it is out of control what other guests are staying in the room and what they talk about. We would like to offer you a free upgrade into a smaller dorm room on the quieter side of the building when you come back to Auckland. Thanks Nomads Auckland


Location is great! it was really close to the shuttle bus stop.I didn't have to walk to the hostel less than 2min.There is a club next to hostel that was so noisy obviously. If I had been a nervous person, I couldn't have slept in that room. cleaning had been well. it was really comfortable for me. i will stay this hostel again.

Hi there, thank you very much for your review. We understand it can be very frustrating when others take food..The bar is separate from the hostel but offer backpacker friendly nights like Tuesdays with $1 slice pizzas and free drink. The Internet costs $4 per day which is a fair price and we also offer free 30mins. WiFi in our Travel shop below the hostel. We hope you enjoy the rest of your travels. Thanks Nomads Auckland Management


Loved Nomads Fort Street! Perfect location, clean rooms & communal areas. AMAZING food (and cheap drinks) at the bar next door. Will be coming back!


Room given was not big enough for 4 adults. Two bunk beds crammed into a single room, no room to move about and one set of bunks obscuring the door to the bathroom. Otherwise we had a good stay
