The romos were a Little bit stinky!
Really great location. The shuttle from the airport drops off within a block. Connected to a wood fired pizza place/bar so my floor had a smokey smell, which i quite enjoyed. Deals offered to backpackers staying at the hostel at the restaurant for things like cheap pizza and free beer! Friendly staff. I would consider staying there again if i return to Auckland.
I have had the experience of stopping many times in Auckland Nomads whilst transiting through and I have to say that for that reason it excels. The hostel is central, near to bus and Airport bus route, near to the bars, and close to the yacht & boat harbour. Nothing outstanding about nomads, are fairly characterless but it is a comfortable short term stopping point for going elsewhere. I would not recommend stopping for a long term experience (unless working) The bars are usually noisy 6days Wk.
I really liked the Hostel, and recommended to everyone else. The Staff was help full, they was so kind and give so good tips. The ruff top is great and very good place to enjoy your meal, meet others guests. The location is excellent, very good also if you would like enjoy the night time in the town! Auckland was awesome staying in that Hostel!
So loud, had to sleep with ear plugs, the hostel is located above a bar which has an outside patio which blasts music till close. Not a good hostel if you are looking for sleep. Is located right near the center of everything touristy in auckland, and the bathrooms are really clean, saw them cleaned both in the morning and night, and nice having storage lockers under the bed.
Staff are great!! They're lovely

The dorm was cleaner than another hostel we stayed in in Auckland (Frienz) and the bathroom facilities were great. But the kitchen facilities were a bit poor and cramped. Overall fine for a night.
A great hostel - so centrally located, helpful staff, really nice clean room! Great bar next door with discounts for guests. Free rooftop bbq a highlight
Come on guys, you very simply need to tell clearly that your hostel doesn't allow any alcohol. You won't do that because you understand that quite a few travellers would have gone elsewhere had they known that.
The kitchen was really small and it was hard to find any bowls or spoons. Never seen such a bad equipped kitchen before. On level one there is a direct entrance to a bar which is cool, saves you the entrance fee. Everything was very clean, but not a big fan of unisex bathrooms. Some guys decided to cut their hair in there and it was very disgusting because it was just everywhere and it took ages until it was clean again... but that was probably bad luck while i was there. would recommend it.
Very cheap hostel. Not very good, small rooms with a lot of beds. But a good value for money. And the location is very good
Stayed on the 2nd floor where the bathrooms are not great, They are cleaned every day but there was no soap by the sinks and the showers always looked a bit grubby. Location is excellent, within walking distance of the habour, the skytower and the main shopping areas of Queens Street and High Street. The staff are friendly but if you want information on the city, go to the travel shop next door.
Bit of a noise problem, can't be helped in the city; but with the window shut the dorm was very hot and stuffy. Otherwise, a great budget hostel in an ideal location. Was woken up by a false fire alarm at 2am one night but again, can't really blame the hostel and at least the fire alarms work!
the dorm room 411 was really untidy and dirty. it wasn't clear which beds were used/taken and which ones not. i got bitten by bed bugs several times! the room was way to small, ten beds instead of twelve would be more than enough ! the beds were very uncomfortable.
Some dorm rooms are really filthy thanks to long term residents. I booked a 12 bed dorm (dirty as hell) - but there were no beds available, so they upgraded me to an 8 bed dorm which was ok. Staff has always been friendly.
Defiantly one of the best hostels I've stayed in, great facilities and location although there was a strange smell in the room?
Great location, fun and friendly staff. Kitchen is on the roof with nice terrace area to eat - can be quite busy at times! Lounge area on 1st floor is great with sofas and bean bags to watch films and computers - wifi works well throughout the hostel. The large dorms can be booked for pretty cheap on here :) and there is enough space in rooms and lockable drawers under the bed (with own padlock) bathrooms are ok, can be a bit dark but clean enough and lots of showers so never have to wait around
Pretty good hostel. All amenities close by. Good location in centre of town.
