    Basic but decent accommodation. Thin walls but good shower pressure. Excellent communication from hostel staff regarding late check-in, with clear instructions received on the day.

    A good enough hostel for the price but don't expect anything special. Mostly the bare minimum but if youre on a budget this is fine.

    Just your typical budget accomodation, a lot of long term backpackers stay here that work in Auckland CBD and surrounding, cleanliness was alright, good for a couple of nights stay or an overnighter but wouldn’t suggest a long term stay, at night you can hear everything outside from traffic to people yelling however for the price per night its bearable

    Almost a perfect hostel. The dorms have no windows so it is very damp, this isn’t great if you’re asthmatic or for anyones health. I woke up with my duvet wet as water had been dripping onto it from the window sill. The beds were also uncomfortable and the bunks are very low. The man checking us in could have smiled. Despite this, the bathrooms are clean, it’s safe and has a good location.

    Ok for a one night stay, minimal facilities but location is good. Would be quite easy to attach the multi board outlets to the wall, between the beds, so they’re accessible from the beds. Could do with more than one shower/mirror per floor too.

    Kitchen was very small and umpractable, there were no fridges there. No heating in dining room and very unwelcoming common area and staff. No plugs on top bunks.

    I arrived to at the hostel and approached the staff member behind the counter and said “how’s it going” while smiling at the staff member. He then looked down and said “what do you need” as unenthusiastic as possible, he did not smile once during check in. In made me feel unwelcome, which is upsetting because it was my first experience staying at a hostel, also while I was reading a book in the common area without warning he just turned off the lights on the side where I was sitting and left
