A friend and I stayed in a twin room, which was comparable to a prison cell. Tiny room, hardly enough to swing a cat around in, 2 single but comfortable beds, a tiny shelf unit with a curtained window up high, offering no view of ventilation. It was a featureless claustrophobic sweat box to be honest. I think many prison cells would be more appealling. The number of toilets were limited on the 3rd floor but the kitchen, dining and lounge areas were good

My "go-to" hostel in Auckland (I've stayed here 4 times) because it is clean and affordable. Met some great travel buddies and took advantage of the huge kitchen for self catering.


Very loud springy beds


A very nice hostel - comfortable and clean.


Slow free wifi, beds a bit short and uncomfortable. Good location


Awesome, very helpful staff. Shame it's up such a huge Hill!


nice Hostel in the middle of the city. Close to the airport shuttle stop. Bad that you need to pay for lockers or buy a padlock. Only a few hair dryers


I guess the best hostel i have been in New Zealand


I think that the staff from the staff could smile from time to time. They should be friendly and helpful not making you feel as if you were loosing their time.
