Just upgrade the size of the lockers in the room and it will be perfect :)

Good stuff: Definitely the location! Right in the heart of the city and near bus stops which the Airbus Express to/fro Auckland airport run. Staff are friendly too. Not-so-good stuff: The kitchen gets very crowded most of the time during our stay and a bit messy too. Also, the WIFI is NOT free. It is only free for YHA members, and travellers who come from afar and have not stayed at YHA accommodations would not have a need for the membership. Otherwise, there's a 10min free wifi for everyone.
This review is for Auckland CITY hostel and not INTERNATIONAL. Hostelbookers messed up my booking by confirming my booking in what turned out to be a fully-booked hostel! Both hostels are pretty good value for money but INTERNATIONAL is much better. CITY has renovations going on and is a lot more cramped in general.
Nice place to stay, the only real disappointment was that there was no free wifi, unless YHA members.
Clearly it's a place where people live while working in Auckland, this adds sort of a strange element to the atmosphere of the place. It sucks that their wifi is only for members!
Smelly room, lack of power points but clean kitchen and nice with private bathrooms.
Nice central location, off street parking, quite clean and cheap. Large kitchen / lounge. Will stay there once i go back to Auckland!
