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!
The WIFI at this hostel is NOT FREE. There's always good food in the free bin.
We stayed at about half a dozen YHA hostels during our trip around New Zealand. They all had one thing in common: they just provided the bare minimum of what you'd expect from a hostel. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and it was a good place to stay, but there was no evidence of going above and beyond like we experienced staying at non-YHA hostels.
Had a great stay and would probably come back. There is a lack of toilet facilities, I was on floor two and there was just 1 toilet for the whole floor! And no wifi for none yha members!! Fortunately I had my own.
