We are really happy that we have made your stay a lovely one and hopefully one to remember. It does take about 45 minutes to walk into the city but there is regular bus (every 5 minutes during the week) that takes you into the city centre for $2.00 and only takes 10 minutes.


A good place to stay.

Such an unforgettable stay with cool mates I got to know thru stay here. Staff were excessively friendly and kind enough.

Thank you for choosing us for your choice of hostel in Auckland. We hope that you enjoy the rest of your traveling and look forward to seeing you again.


The kitchen, bathroom and common room are nice. Well located in Auckland if you wanna stay close to Mount Eden (great place to stay btw). The rooms are quiet nice, you have only simple beds which is nice. However, they wanna save energy so the plugs turn off every 45 minutes and you have to restart it again... The problem is that the heater is on the plug... so the rooms are really freezing in winter.

Thank you for your comment. The plugs are on timers which lasts for 90 minutes, not 45 minutes. We do provide additional blankets in all our rooms with doubled up duvets and if you require more blankets we are more than happy to supply them. We hope that you enjoy the rest of your trip around NZ and we look forward to seeing you again.
