No sleep on the two nights we were there due to constant music and noise from the rooftop bar until 3am even though it was a week day.

fix the stupid key cards. twice a day I would have to go wait 10 minutes In line at reception to have them reprogram the key card. seems like a small detail, but walking up and down three flights of stairs is annoying. happened both times i stayed there. and no power points by the beds. one in each room.


Rooms are a bit small but overall ok


Class place stay 2-3 nights you'll have a class time staff are on it and friendly!!


Location is good - however if you are looking for quiet this is not the place. They also need to be more viglient about enforcing rules. Place needs a BIG clean up and renovation. I would only recommend to a young partier who doesn't mind uncleanliness.


The whole hostel seemed dirty. The duvet I got was full of hair, the walls in the dorm were something you don't want to touch, staff was nice unless there were more than three people in the lobby, kitchen is small and the water might stop running all of a sudden... Showers were nice, but the bathrooms weren't otherwise clean at all. Wet floors, dust everywhere, and some stalls without toilet paper...


By far the smallest 8-bed dorm I've ever been in. 2 plugs for the room was pretty terrible as well.


La ubicación del hostel es excelente, el personal cordial y la vista desde la terraza muy buena. Pero falta espacio en los refrigeradores de la cocina, y las habitaciones privadas (al menos en la que estuve) son muy pequeñas, el colchón arruinado y además con una cama alta cruzada por arriba de la cama doble lo cual hace que todo sea mas incómodo. No tiene ventanas por lo tanto es muy escasa la luz y la ventilación.Deberían advertirlo al momento de la reserva o bajar el precio.


One of the worst hostels I've ever stayed in. Room was completely dirty, bottles, pizzas boxes, dirt everywhere, I was in a 10-bed room were you could barely walk there was no space too small for that amount of beds. The bed was broken!! No enough lights in the bathrooms, kitchen dirty. I stayed in the nomads in Wellington and Queenstown and was perfect but this place was the worst. Wont come here again and for sure dont recommend it to anyone!!!


The location is amazing, some of the staff are very helpful and friendly, and there's some free internet (downstairs in the hangout lounge). There's a great bar next door/connected. On the other hand, some of the staff was rude, the room was average, and the kitchen is pretty dang small. Average, overall.


The room I was allocated at nomads had no plug socket so I had to go and sit with my phone charging in the common room. Not ideal at all.


I went to The Nomads in Auckland to check in, and they had no details of my booking. This was ok, as i had other options of places to stay, but they didnt seem very concerned about the fact they had lost my booking, or try to look for another room for me. If I didnt have other places to stay available with friends I would have been left stranded, and this didnt seem to worry the staff, as far as they were concerned i didnt have a booking and that was it.

I had a good time here stayed for my first week in Auckland the staff are lovely and will help in any way they can. The room was clean comfortable bed and good security. I couldn't fault it in any way to be honest well worth the stay


Ich habe nur eine Nacht im Nomads verbracht aber die Mitarbeiter waren sehr nett :) Unisex Waschräume aber alles sehr sauber, im Hostel hat man leider kein Freies Wifi aber direkt neben dem Hostel ist ein Aufenthaltsbereich mit unbegrenztem Internet. Viel Platz fürs Gepäck war im 8-Bett Zimmer leider nicht aber der Aufenthaltsraum passt als Ausweichmöglichkeit :) für meinen kurzen Aufenthalt war ich sehr zufrieden!


Stayed here for 1 night in transit. Having to pay for wifi stinks. Other than that friendly staff and good location.


悪くはなかったのですが、チェックインをし部屋に入ったらベッドの準備がされておらず1時間くらい待ちました。しかもそのベッドダニだかノミだかがいて、前泊の人が移ったとか… ルームメイトの人が取り合ってくれてベッドは交換してもらいましたが、部屋自体も(その時のルームメイトの性格にもよるが)綺麗とは言えませんでした。ベッドもすごい勢いで揺れます!とりあえずの泊まるところ、という感じでしたらいいと思います。


Im Allgemeinen ein schönes Hostel mit guter Ausstattung. Hat mir gut gefallen. Aufgrund der Größe etwas unpersönlich. Schweriger Kontakte zu knüpfen wzB in einem kleineren Hostel. Negative Punkte-Könnte man ändern: Morgens Rückenschmerzen von der Matratze (Bin normalerweise nicht anfällig für Rückenschmerzen). Die Metallbetten quietschen extrem laut, da hilft auch kein Hörschutz. Auf der Innenseite der Comfort-Dusche befindet sich schwarzer Schimmel in den Fugen. --> gründlichere Reinigung


Das Hostel ist eigentlich ganz in Ordnung abgesehen von der Tatsache, dass es in einem Zimmer mit acht Betten nur zwei Steckdosen hat und ich im Bett von Bettmilben zerbissen worden bin :(


Stayed there to start my year of work and travel and it was the right desicion!:) friendly staff, clean, good equipment in the kitchen and just next to Queen Street. Perfect opportunity to meet future travelmates and make new friends.

I was very disappointed in this nomads. It was very dirty and only two plug ins in an 8 person room. I would not recommend it. Although the staff were nice
