    Class stay, great roof top with loads of atmosphere. Tom at reception and in happy travels booked us on a unreal kiwi experience tour. He really sorted our trip out so I’d ask for him if booking a trip! Would recommend a stay here.

    The hostel was the absolute best, everyone was very friendly. There are many other backpackers you could join for a night out. It’s a very fun hostel right in the center of Auckland. If you are looking for the right hostel to start your trip, this one would be perfect.

    The location is incredibly good right in the middle of Auckland business district. Everything was pretty clean. Once in a while has problems with partiers in town.

    Very Good

    Great location. We had initially booked two beds in a 10 bed dorm, but upon arrival my bed had a huge beer stain and hair all over it and the room was absolutely crammed full of beds and people. For a "dry hostel" there was a lot of drinking going on. The lockers under the bed are large and the doors all have electronic locks. The kitchen is big, but there's not enough storage or dishes which leads to bags of food everywhere and never any clean spoons or forks. Bathrooms are ok.

    I have seen the same s*** in one toilet for 4 days and the same ball of black hair in the shower for almost a week. I think that says all about how often they clean their bathrooms. The kitchen is much to small for such a big hostel and people just take your bag of food and leave it outside to put their stuff in the fridge.

    Booked nomads despite the poor cleanliness reviews. Couldn't be that bad!?! It could! its disgracefully dirty!! Kitchen has piles of rubbish overpouring all over kitchen floor, sinks covered in scum, cutlery/dishes dirty, shower coving brown, duvet covered in hair, 8 people squashed into small room fit for 4-6 max, leaving no space for bags except the middle of room. If this doesn't bother you too much, I would still recommend. Solid location, good price, welcoming staff. Oh, and WiFi is poor

    So SO dirty, disgusting & un-homely. The location & staff have bumped up the star rating I've given this hostel but honestly I wouldn't recommend anyone to stay here. Cannot understand how the place can be so filthy when they have a housekeeping team? Food, dirt, hair plus miscellaneous scum all over the whole floor in my room, thick, built up dirt all over the windowsill & windows, the smell of body odor and general stench in the hallways & room made me gag. Do not recommend!

    I've been to this hostel twice now, both times it was disgusting, banana skins and rotting food next to the bunk beds, blood on the bathroom floor and sanitary pads in showers. The hostel is far to understaffed to maintain basic cleaning. The filthiest hostel I've seen in the world.
