    Beautiful place and very gracious management. Close enough to downtown Auckland to be the in 15 minutes but far enough out not to feel congested. Will stay here again. Great place. Highly recommend

    Tina did a wonderful job with this hostel. It feels like Home and the guests were also lovley, even a lot of Kiwis stayed there. You have to take an hour train ride to the City, but besides from that, everything was perfect. I would definitely stay there again!

    Overall good stay. There's not much to do close by, so it's best for a quick stopover. Beautiful house, immaculately clean. I barely saw Tina during my stay, and other guests kept to themselves too. A quality breakfast was provided which was so appreciated. My only complaint -not the host's fault whatsoever - was the noise from the road all night. Earplugs are a must if you're a light sleeper like me! I recommend this place for value for money and very comfortable accomodation.

    Lovely little place, room left open for us on arrival as host was out. Felt very safe and lovely relaxed place. Location not what I expected quite far out to research your intended location before as we didn’t and ended up quite far from airport. Lovely host, great kitchen and free breakfast included!

    Even though the cleaning lady was lovely, we weren't content with the behavior of the owner. No answers on E-mails or answers which showed that she hadn't read ours properly. No professional behavior, Check in was a hour late even though, she knew that we had travelled for 48h and our room hadn't been used night before. There was no apology and I had to go to her office to asked if we could finally go to room, when payed she couldn't even give us the change directly. No interest in guests

    I can’t rate this properly as we weren’t able to stay the night. Due to no replies via email we couldn’t get in at 1am. We stood in the rain trying the phone for a while before finding another hotel. In the end we spent a few hundred more than we’d budgeted for. I asked for a refund of the deposit but the owner said that she couldn’t transfer it and has since stopped returning emails.
