    Great hostel. Tom and Phil were great staff, willing to go out of there way to make guests comfortable. It felt like a good environment, and I really enjoyed the music. Kitchen and the bathrooms were thankfully very clean. Mixed 12 and 14 person bedrooms have the basic needs with sufficient charge ports (from what I saw). Some (not all) of the bunks were squeaky, but you're not paying for luxury. When I switched rooms after one night (empty12person room) staff immediately washed my old sheets.

    We had a great stay! The hostel Was super clean, the facilities and bedding were all super clean aswell. Great value for price and great location. The road works made it a mission to find but that’s nothing they can control. The staff were super helpful and friendly. We will definitely be happy to book again!

    Only here for 9 hours before an early flight. Really good twin room, which is exactly what we needed to break up all the flying of our day. Very independent space.

    Was here during the Coronavirus lockdown. Staff were exceptional and every attempt was made to help stranded tourists. No attempt to rip people off and offered a discount to support through the compulsory 4 week booking. Facilities a little dated, but all in all a very good stay.

    The location of this hostel is perfect. It is right next to queen street which is the main street for tourists. The staff was very friendly and tried to help me when I had some problems with a letter that didn`t arrive which I really appreciated! The bathrooms weren`t the cleanest.

    WiFi is slow but that's kinda the thing here from what I understand. A great place to meet and socialize with other travelers. The age group is predominantly younger, so there are some rowdy and fun loving people here for sure (not a bad thing if you want to come out of your shell). The location is also PERFECT, close to many great things in downtown Auckland. I definitely would stay again, even if it's not the utmost cleanest place, the energy makes up for the minor cons.

    Not very clean or nice but the location was amazing. My biggest issue was one of the male staff making me feel very uncomfortable to the point that I checked out early and stayed with a friend instead. Just felt I should mention it so other women who go there are aware.
