We had a great stay in this hostel. Read all this horrible reviews, but stayed in a 10 bed dorm with no issues. Staff was friendly, service was good, facilities were amazing. Kitchen well equiped and clean, plenty of fridge space and cooking equipment. Bathrooms were good, showers powerfull and warm, and seen them get cleaned every morning. The dorm had plenty of space, some tables and chairs made it comfortable. Location really good aswell, close to shops and little walk away from Queen street.

Very friendly staff, hostel is clean and has many interesting guests. Bathroom and kitchen facilities are good with good range of cooking appliances. Lounge is nice at night when everyone talks to each other, I will stay here longer now that I have decided to get job in Auckland.

If you enjoy muggy basement rooms with no windows, uncomfortable bunks without enough space to sit up, sitting down on pee covered toilets, and the threat that you could be charged at any time for an unknown rule or standardly provided item, and overcrowding to the point of fire hazard, this place is for you! With its wonderful Hobson St location, you can even buy the finest drugs to inject and pass out on the street after taking. The homeless that night sure got better sleep than we did.
