    Nice clean hostel. They allowed me to access my room before check in time. The room was very spacious and the bed was super comfortable. Had lockers under the bed for valuables since bedroom door was not always locked. Wifi worked good and was unlimited. Everything was very clean including the unisex bathrooms. Only downside is the kitchen/lounge area is very small and it is hard to find room for groceries in pantry and fridge.

    Great, clean facilities. Fully equipped kitchen, not an overly social atmosphere but we spent most of the time visiting the islands anyway! Would stay again.

    This is a quiet hostel on the outside of the main city area. There are places to get food and supplies within a short 1-5 min walk from the hostel. It is probably a 15 min walk into the main city area, but make sup for it by being 1) quieter and 2) closer to suburbs and k road that offer really cool cafes and things to do. It was very clean, guests were mostly quiet. Staff very nice. I enjoyed my stay! It is not a party hostel, but I didn’t want that. Good to get work done.

    Hobson Lodge is a great little hostel, the owners were very nice and the facilities were very clean. The only thing I didn’t like is the location, it is in Auckland Central, but it’s a bit of a walk to the nearest supermarket, and food area. Still Recommend though!

    Hostel is a little pricy, but overall clean. Atmosphere was good, but not the best for me. Overall a good hostel to stay at.

    Very quiet, calm hostel. Does not have a bar and does not allow alcohol consumption on site. Guests were nice, I slept well here. Each bed has chargers and they sell adapters at the front desk or $3.50

    Good location, close to downtown. Wifi was decent and accessable throughout. The hand towels in the washroom/kitchen could have been changed more often as I found they were eternally damp day or night. The unisex showers/toilets were clean. Room doors are accessed with keys that no one in my room used, but lockers are under the beds to keep your things safely.

    It should have baskets and wall hangers for clothes in Common bathrooms. Found dirts in bathrooms floors and wet towels on hooks. Dryers $4 is quite high. And parking beside hostel is chargeable $15 which is not mentioned in the list. Room of female dormitory where we stayed was quite small and congested. Location is good near sky tower.

    I was in a room with people who lived there long term so felt unwelcome. The walls are pretty thin, I could hear someone (who was in the hall) entire phone conversation even though the door was closed. It was clean and bed was comfortable, decent kitchen and plenty of toilets and showers but there was just a general lack of atmosphere.
