Decent hostel but the staff didn't promote a fun or welcoming atmosphere. They don't offer any information about things going on or attempt to get the guests involved in anything fun at the hostel.

Hi Simon, Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. It's a shame you feel this way, upon checkin we give every guest a map and explain to them about all of the things that they can do and see while in Auckland and offer lots of information. We also host nights for our guests such as movie nights in the winter and BBQ's in the Summer. We are however not at all a party hostel, more of a chilled out and relaxing place. Never-the-less, thanks for leaving your comments, The PB Team

Clean, and fun. Staff is very helpful, especially the fellow from Africa. But no air conditioning, and not very secure with no lockers of any kind - you are told it is perfectly secure and nothing would ever be taken, but surely they would take no responsibility in the case that something did happen.

Probably the best hostel Ive stayed at in Europe. Great atmosphere and the coolest, nicest, cutest staff that you'll meet. Sad to leave :(

This was a great hostel, run by an amazing lady who goes out of her way to help out with anything and everything you need.

Pretty good hostel, but not much to do there. It was clean, but poor security, nowhere to lock anything. The girl at the desk was very kind :)

Great hostel - only would be nice if the common room was more comfortable, with a TV or something. Its more of a waiting room.

Nice secure lockers, but the bathrooms are not well kept, and having no kitchen wasnt very good!

Good hostel but quite expensive. Very clean, air conditioned rooms are nice. But it could really use a kitchen that guests can use.
