    Great place at e very good location, the stuff are great and always happy to help. Lots of room to storage food in the kitchen. Got back there a night before my flight back home after 2300, and the key to my room was waiting for me. Will definitely go there again if I get back to Auckland again.

    The location is really good, it's a 5 minute walk to the Sky Tower and there's lots of places to eat and shops nearby. It's also very close to the bus station. The hostel itself is quite quirky, nicely decorated, it's clean with great facilities. The kitchen and dining area is very big with good facilities and well stocked with bowls, plates etc. I think it's great that they offer a private single room, not many hostels do. I stayed in the single room on one occasion and also the female dorm.

    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.

    Solid hostel with good facilities including good communal area and kitchen. Staff can be hit or miss in their assistance but if you ask they will be there. Decently clean, no lockers to store belongings. Will store bags if you need before and after checkout.

    No AC and only 3 fans for 12 people. A few days we had had warm weather and it was hot and uncomfortable to sleep. Not very helpful staff with booking travel, decided to visit another hostel and they helped me booked my trips.
