the staff and location were great. we stayed in a private room in one of the apartment, there was a very unpleasant smell in the apartment during the whole stay, the bed in the room was bent and crooked and very uncomfortable, the wifi should be free, sleeping wasn't easy either with the bar playing music full volume until 2-3 in the morning

Really cool hostel. Amazing staff and super close to the waterfront and the main street in Auckland, but I still think they should provide free wifi.

It's a decent hostel for someone who is just looking for a basic place to sleep. Ear plugs are a must, as the neighbourhood is rather noisy - that's the price you pay for such a prime location, though! Rooms are quite small, especially that the lockers provided are very slim and won't store your backpack. Shower facilities and the kitchen are passable, but could do with an upgrade. I really liked the complimentary food, it was always very tasty!

It's a decent hostel for someone who is just looking for a place to sleep. Rooms are very basic but generally clean, shower facilities and the kitchen are passable, but could do with an upgrade. I really liked the complimentary food, which was always yummy (and came for free). Location of the hostel is great and staff is friendly.

The only good thing is the free dinner. Bar is empty every day, things are old and smells bad.

With the bar down stairs it's good fun going out but impeding to sleep when you are not

You had to scan in several times to get to your room, which made me feel secure, but the lockers in the room were broken.

very loud hostel with music playing all through the night. the key cards do not really work they way they should and have to be exchanged pretty much several times a day. staff seems 'too cool' to be nice and generally is the hostel far too big to be a nice place up stay.

This hostel didn't heighten my experience of Auckland at all. I have stayed in a lot of 'budget' hostels, but this one wasn't the best by far. The room had no window and the pillows were not particularly clean. The location was ok and there was a locker for my things (although 2/4 lockers in the room were broken). I was after cheap and cheerful for a couple of nights, but this was just drab and run down. The showers were particularly awful. It was manageable for a few nights but not pleasant.
