You had to pay for wifi (nzd 4 per day or nzd 12 per week). There were only two plugs in each room (and almost everybody needs to use an adaptor so only one plug could be used! Very bad!! The bathrooms were clean and big enough. It was very hot in the room and our room was right in front of a bar which played very loud music in the evening.

Genuinely had a good time here. Much better than the other hostels in town. Light sleepers and non party goers might find the street a bit loud.

If you are traveling to Auckland there is no better place to stay. Three minutes walking distance from the Harbor, 1 min from the bus stop to the airport. There is a good warm up bar/night club on the first floor and 4/5 night clubs 50m distance from the hostel. Huge variety of restaurants and shops nearby. Just perfect!

Nice hostel. Beds not that comfy but fine and my drawer locked but some didn't. Nice clean kitchen on top floor and adjoining bar was good too. Overall fine but the location was fantastic.

Hostel felt kind of crowded and a bit filthy. No Internet in the building unless you paid, and even when you did, the connection was unreliable. Did like the big security lockers in the room though, could fit our to big bags in one. But all and all, not for us.

Secure 24 hour luggage storage would be a great addition.

Very noisy hostel! Could hear doors slamming all night and boys running up and down the corridor knocking on doors and making noise - all night! Rooms were very clean.

La pulizia delle camere al primo piano sono tendenti allo scarso. I bagni invece sono mediocri/buoni. Qualità/prezzo è mediocre perché a differenza di altri ostelli, pur pagando la camera qualche dollaro in meno per camerate da 8/10/12 letti ( in camerate più piccole 6/4 letti invece è molto meno vantaggioso), internet Wifi non è compreso e deve essere pagato a parte. Risultando così paragonabile ad altre soluzioni o addirittura superiore.

Location is great and staff is super friendly. Rooms and bathrooms were very old but clean . Kitchen was absolutely filthy and gross. Didn't go near the area. Wifi paid services were cheap .

Excellent location. But it's a huge hostel. If you want wifi, you have to go next door (and it might or might not work).

Nice hostel, nice dorms with huge underbed lockers. Great atmosphere, however a lot of long stayers who seemed to have their daily dramas aired in the kitchen (or corridor at night). Good facilities. Only bugbear is the kitchen is on floor 7, and there's only 1 very very slow lift. Prepare for the steps workout! Overall very good hostel.

We stayed at Nomads for two nights in Auckland. It's right in the city center, which is nice. The atmosphere is a little more commercial than preferred, but the facilities were good and the place felt safe. We'd stay here again.

Emailed about rebooking and didn't get a response for over 24 hours.

Hi Inka, We hope you joined one of our free or cheap daily activities which are totally designed for adventurous, independent travellers such as your self. These include guided city tours, silo out door cinema, a rooftop bbq on a Thursday night and we even walk coast to coast on a Tuesday! I hope the awesome reception team made you aware of these adventures! The $1 pizza slices at the adjoining FSU bar on a Tuesday night are also a hit with our guests ! We wish you happy travels

Hostel was totally functional, but internet availability needs to be offered for all guests across all floors (e.g., at least 500MB per person per day). The current system of needing to go down to a travel agency for only an hour of wifi is ridiculous - at best. Also need at least two to three more big refrigerators in the kitchen to accommodate all the guests; currently individuals need to squeeze what they have amidst others' items - and it is a nightmare! LOL!

Very well located. Old beds. Pretty small rooms. Only two sockets in the 8 bed room. Sauna is small but still good as it is for free.

An OK hostel on good location with no atmosphere. Staff in the reception are fine but the rest (social activities) were non existing or in a super bad mood. Honestly on of the most boring hostels I have been to in my 5 months of traveling. However, it's clean and in good location.
