A nice hostel in a calm part of Melbourne but close to everything. The room was really nice but the toilets/showers felt like a public bathroom... We arrived late and only stayed one night so can't really do a more in depth review.

Pretty good hostel overall but with two flaws: 1. REALLY loud at night. Not from the hostel but from Base just across the street... and that's every night 'til 2 am... 2. Quite far from the supermarket, though there are a smaller supermarket (more expensive) less than a km away and a convenience store (even more expensive) on the same street. The hostel is actually really good if it wasn't for the noise from across the street. So buy ear plugs at the dollar store in town!

Henrik, thankyou for the rating, the noise has been dampened since the new liquor legislation came into force on the 18th. The major supermarket (countdown ) is 1.2 ks away and the smaller 4 square is 600 meters away, not a lot i can do to move them, but without a car, cheaper shopping is a planned mission. Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in NZ.

Hostel is located in a suburb about 20 min walk from Auckland CBD, which means it's quiet and peaceful. There's a ~15 min walk to the supermarket. Our room (double) was really nice and spacious. Bathrooms were pretty small but clean and sufficient for us, no more, no less. The staff is excellent and really nice. The kitchen is a little bit small during lunch hours because there's so many people trying to use it at once, but just wait 15 min and it'll be allright. Overall a good hostel!

Nice location close to the sea. The kitchen and bathrooms were good and clean. Our room on the other hand had some mold near the ceiling... Nice spa pool and small swimming pool.

We didn't get the room that we'd booked so that's a big minus, not sure whose fault it was though. We did get a discount and some free wifi because of the mix up, The room we eventually got was average: clean, small beds, hot, lots of wall sockets, not very spacious. Kitchen was ok, not very big but was no problem for us. There was no lockers in the room and the luggage storage was a small unlocked shed in the courtyard, but I think they lock it at night. Location was good on a quiet street.

Got a free upgrade to a ensuite so can't complain about the staff. The room was clean and spacious. Three kitchens, which is good, but wasn't allways clean. The swimming pool and spa pool were great! Quite far from the tourist attractions but close to a supermarket. Managed to get free wifi from a telecom phone booth so can't comment on the hostels wifi.

Only stayed for one night and arrived late so can't say too much about the hostel, but it seemed nice and had a chilled out atmosphere. Good value for money.

Small, filthy kitchen. Not enough fridges. Staff was excellent! Location was central but that also meant a lot of noise from the main street! Lots of noise from inside the hostel late at night. The bathrooms were clean but not really any good. You can't change temperature in the shower... (ridiculously hot!)

Nice, cozy hostel in a quiet area of Auckland. Close to supermarket and easy to grab a bus to the city center or airport. OK dorm rooms, not the most spacious, no lockers and just two wall sockets. The kitchen was great, big and clean! Good veranda, lounge room and bathroom area. Recommended!
