It was not worth the time or money. There are so many hostels in central Auckland I wish I would have spent the extra dollar or two a night. There area it was located on did not represent Auckland well. The rooms were stuffy and smelly, and the facilities were not tidy or maintained. It seemed like everything was kept up just enough to "get by." Not much care is given into the place as a whole. There are numerous host

Hi Jordan, thank you for taking the time to place feedback on your stay with us and we are devastated it did not live up to your expectations. We are awaiting a long promised building renovation by the owners that will see an end to most of the issues you describe. Please take my word that a lot of care is taken in trying to keep the hostel as clean as possible but it is taking more and more work as the building gets older and older. Kind regards

Room was tiny. Place wasn't clean. Only thing good was the location. Couldn't wait to be out of the place! Horrible hostel. Won't ever return. So disappointing.

Hi Lorna, Thank you for taking the time to place feedback on your stay with us and we are devastated it did not live up to your expectations. I can assure you the hostel is cleaned thoroughly every day with an evening shift going back through all kitchen and common areas! Kind regards

You get what you pay for! I've stayed here multiple times because it's one of the cheapest options in auckland. Floors are 'apartment' style and in each apartment there are about 5-7 dorm rooms and a kitchen, showers and toilets- some people may like this layout- others may not.

Thought everything was great, except that there is a bar downstairs, so it's quite loud during the weekends.
