Overall a good choice and a nice old building. Be great if someone checked the bathrooms are clean and tidy more than once a day though, as there are not many when the place is full and things get heavily used.


We really enjoyed our stay and had no problems at all arriving in the middle of the night. Thank you


Lovely hostel. The staff are really friendly and everything is perfectly clean and well kept. Located in the adorable Mount Eden village which has loads of cafes and interesting shops. Only about a 45 minutes walk into town or there is a bus for about 2 dollars! There is a free food section in the kitchen which is really useful for those little extras you forgot to buy! Would definitely recommend :)


Had a lovely time, I really had just slept here! I arrived, threw my bags down and ran to the Cricket game!! Then got in late and left at 5:30am. Great atmosphere, and the staff i interacted with were nice! A perfect place, right near Mt.Eden, which is an amazing walk up to see the view! As well about 15-20 min walk to Eden Park. Also, city bus comes right by their street, which was handy! Would love to stay here again if I had the chance!

The dorm rooms in this hostel were not clean. There was a molding stain on the carpet next to my bed. The sink bowl in one of the bathrooms was cracked and had a hole in it. Water would run straight out of the sink into the bathroom floor. When I first checked in, I claimed an empty bottom bunk by making the bed and putting my stuff on the bed, then I left for a few hours. When I came back some had put my things on the floor and replaced them with theirs.

The rooms are cleaned to an extremely high standard, just like the rest of the hostel. It is a shame someone made your stay here not as welcome by removing your items on the bed you had claimed. I have checked the sinks and not sure where this crack and hole is. I would always prefer guests to inform me of any issues so they can be resolved and make their stay great rather than staying quiet.
