    Staff are very friendly and helpful. The facilities are good, the kitchen is big and spacious but half of the hobs were not working. It can get very busy in there in the evening so having only half of the hobs working was a pain at times. The lifts also take forever to come to your floor no matter which floor you are on and you can’t take the stairs as they lock the doors to each floor apart from the reception. Our room had no windows but this could have just been our luck. Overall a good hostel

    Less than impressed. The rooms and bathroom were decent, very basic, showers kind of dirtier. The girl that checked me in, Holly, was incredibly unhelpful, unfriendly and dismissive. She was helping a group of guys before me and took her time explaining things to them in a very cheery way. With me she acted annoyed to answer any questions, would not make eye contact, made a sarcastic comment, then handed me my key and said nothing. Very unwelcoming and uncomfortable. Will not stay again.

    I was only here for one night before flying out of Auckland, but even so the rooms and facilities in this hostel were really bad. When I arrived to my room, I could barely find floor space to walk to my bunk, let alone open up my suitcase because there was clothing, bags, and trash strewn about everywhere. The bathrooms and showers were also not clean at all and I could barely bring myself to use them. The only upside were the friendly staff.

    Was very unhappy with my stay at Base Auckland. The staff were mediocre, not the friendliest at all in my opinion. Rooms are disgusting, I arrived after a long day of travel to a stained bedsheet, hair all over the bed and the room smelling of dirty clothes. Bathrooms are so run down you can’t even step in the showers without flip-flops. I have travelled quite a bit and stay in many hostels but this by far was my worst experience.

    Filthy - including bedsheets and bathrooms. Private room had no windows, I cleaned the surfaces myself - grimey, carpets were filthy & at 70NZD/night this is not acceptable. Key card broke at least once a day so locked out of my room. 1 working washing machine - couldn’t bare to look at kitchen. I would have complained and moved but was ill so didn’t have the energy. Location amazing. Social events seemed good. Reception nice but incompetent. Stop getting backpackers to clean - they don’t care.

    This hostel was extremely disappointing. I ended up in a windowless room with two bunk beds and no ventilation and it felt like I was sleeping in a stuffy closet. You need a key card for the elevators and it took at least 10 tries for it to work. The whole hostel felt very dirty and like an old run down hotel or dorm room. Would not recommend you stay here when there are other hostels in Auckland for the similar price.
