    Perfectly adequate hostel for any backpacker. Good security throughout the hostel and friendly staff. Significantly cleaner than Nomads which is nearby. Recommend staying here instead. The lifts are hit-and-miss, but hey you can’t have everything :)

    Good location right in the city centre, helpful knowledgeable staff that can help you with activities (with discounts!). Kitchen was a bit grimey, fridges etc hasnt been cleaned in a while but pretty good facilities. Little roof top bar was nice, fair prices and some activities ran nightly. Good place for Kiwi experience, as its a collection /drop off location 🥝

    Was worn and not clean. Had stayed 2 years ago and there was a marked deterioration in cleanliness and maintenance. The white linen was greyish. In the corridor some one had spilt food and rubbish on the floor and it stayed there through the night and was still there when we left at 10am . Make toilet was blocked. Female amenities were clean. The location is fantastic . Staff friendly.

    As hostels go pretty basic and could do with some serious updates. Assuming the number of backpackers tramping through Auckland has to affect upkeep of property. The cleaning could certainly be done or at least a top off once through the day as the best hostels typically do that. Kitchen was nowhere near some of the mediocrely clean hostel kitchens I've seen. All in all a roof over your head for a cheap price.

    This place is ok if you plan to party/drink heaps and pass out despite the noise. If you’re looking for a good night’s sleep, not ideal. Walls are paper thin and you can hear the bass from the club underneath. There were no key cards for the elevators so had to go to reception to wait for staff to let me back to my floor every time I went somewhere. A few Showers out of order. The location is alright, staff are lovely. But I probs wouldn’t stay again as didn’t feel it was worth the $$ paid.

    The staff at reception were rude and unhelpful. The room was very dirty with chewing gum all over the floor. Overall, not a good stay and disappointed that we spent our money on the hostel.

    Me and my friend got put in separate rooms and when we asked to be moved together we were told that this is very common and if we wanted to be in a room together we should have requested it. This seems ridiculous, If you book beds for multiple people of course you want to be in a room together. Staff were rude and unhelpful, the hostel had no atmosphere and was dirty... do not stay here you could get far better for you money anywhere else.

    My room had no windows and smelled very strongly of socks. I’m guessing it was from the guy who had been living in the room for 6 months. He was rude and made me and another girl in the room very uncomfortable. The bathrooms were also very dirty compared to the other hostels in New Zealand I’ve been to. My room key wouldn’t work half the time and I had to keep going to the reception and asking someone to swipe me up.
