great hostel in town centre, easy to get to and from transport to more beautiful places than Auckland :)
great stay in auckland and friendly staff (espacially james). clean rooms and comfy beds.
Really nice hostel. In de middle of the centrum:)
Cool place to stay for a couple of days. Very clean hostel, spacious kitchen. It would have been nice to have a personal locker in the room but locker room was better than nothing.
No lockers to keep your stuff safe. It would be great if they could something about it. Rooms very hot and poor ventilation (rooms smell like the cave of a tiger) that could be prevented with better ventilation. Lift very old and non reliable (one fellow traveller was trapped for over an hour) and i had struggled with the lift 3 times of the 4 times i used it (i walked another 4 times for safety reasons). Location is great. Big kitchen and communal toilets/showers. Staff very very helpful.
An issue I had with the hostel was that the code lock on the outside door to the hostel wasn't working when I was trying to the enter the building at ~11:00PM. I was waiting outside for at least 30 minutes before someone opened from the door inside the building allowing me in. I mentioned this issue to the one of the hostel staff the following day and I was met with a response of 'oh yeah that happens sometimes' implying that they aren't too bothered about the issue.
Poor service terrible hostel plenty other decent ones go to them..... Its just all bad and poor quality and a deathtrap elevator to even get there to finish off the poor experience
Good hostel, great location and staff. Room was a tad hot but not bad
I really didnt like that they close the kitchen and terrace for eating and smoking at 22.00. you had to go out from the 5th floor out to the street for smoking. Also if you wanted a cup of coffee you would have to go out to get it. The very least i liked about it was the cancellation 48h, coz it didnt work. I cancelled my 6 days stay on day two and was given a 2 days free voucher which i would never use or need instead of money back. So i was told by the reception that i could give it to someone
Fantastic. Probably the best hostel I have been to in NZ - and I've been to a lot! Very friendly staff, good atmosphere and perfect location. Quiet too, not a crazy party hostel which is nice.
A fantastic hostel in central Auckland. Conveniently located for the airport bus and Kiwi Experience bus stops. The hostel is clean, with good facilities. Hair dryer and straighteners in the bathroom are an added bonus too. Staff were very friendly and helpful as well. Great stay.
I just spent one night. Was okay about security, staff and cleanliness. Very well located. Good bed and shower. It worth the money.
It is a central location which is great. Paid wifi. good kitchen. Nice and relaxed common space.
great hostel very helpful when it comes to travel plans good location
Great place to stay even if you are not a traditional "backpacker".

The hostel is nice and quiet, everything you need is at hand and it's right in the city center. Downside is that the kitchen is locked at night. I had to get up early to get my bus but couldn't get to the fridge to take my groceries. Had to leave all of them behind which cost me a lot of money :(
The facility itself isn't bad, though they charge for internet access. However, when I left property behind they refused to mail it back to me, even though I said I would pay for the shipping. Clearly, customer service is not their priority here.
staff very helpful and polite, good value for money and good place in Auckland to be :)
They close the public outside area by 11 which is pretty annoying as you cannot go anywhere else exepct your room after 11pm.
Really well presented hostel with good facilities but it witnessed staff being quite rude on a regular basis, which diminished from my stay. I would return though.
