Very kind and knowledgeable staff. Nice decorating touch with all of the art in the hostel. Love the dog. Spacious lockers. Only suggestion would be to make copies of the keys for every customer so no one has to share the main key.

Had to LoL while reading this :) Thanks for the review. The Key system stays as it its, however, you will walk the extra 10m, period. We tried your suggestion long ago of course. Doesn't work. 80% of the keys are never returned. And we can't be bothered with taking deposits, too much trouble. One key to rule them all.

hot water in showers only lasted 1-2 minutes, tops. a little cramped in the dorm rooms, so no need for a kitchen. staff seemed more concerned with selling their tours than the state of the customer. wifi was only working in the reception, almost never worked in the rooms.

After spending time in over 200+ hostels in my short lifetime, I think I can say the following with some authority. Please print out and display somewhere in the hostel a complete list of rules expected of the guests. This is common practice in hostels and will greatly help to avoid any misunderstandings between staff and guests. Also, NEVER lose your cool with the customers. No matter how nice you are, they will NEVER forget even the smallest of incidents. Lastly, lockers are needed.

clean and modern facilities, but a little cramped in the rooms and common area. would be nice if they opened up the balcony on the top floor. social atmosphere is nonexistent. rarely anyone at the reception and you have to call them if they are not there. they say the front door is going to be repaired, but it was never done in the week i was there. while one of the managers had good people skills (tall, skinny, short hair, glasses), the other manager clearly did not.

NZ is a wealthy westernized country, so paying for hot water for a shower is a no-no. if the owner wants to market his hostel as a place strictly for french people, that is ok (there are plenty of hostels that cater to only one nationality). but if he wants to draw guests from many countries, he needs to do a better job of making sure non-french people do not feel alienated due to not being french.

Sorry to hear you had a bad experience. Regarding the shower, it is written in the property description, it is not hidden. and the bed price remains the cheapest in Auckland...Regarding the customers I can't, nor want, restrict or market towards on nationality, it will be segregation... Happy new year

this is really just a place to lay your head on a pillow. not a party hostel or even a social hostel where the hostel organizes events so people can get to know each other (i.e., dinner party, etc.).

Worst i have ever seen: dogs pissing and pooping on the floors and walls, bugs all over the place (especially the kitchen), a nasty stench (probably from the backup in the sewer system), graffiti on the walls of a few rooms, broken walls that make break-ins easy, chickens clucking from 2-6am in the morning, boogers on the bottom of my pillow, a brothel right across the street and the owner´s son tried to `borrow`money from my friend. honestly, i could not make this stuff up if i wanted to.
