    Everything about this place was lovely. If you’re in Auckland, I don’t think you’ll get it better than this. Few mishaps with a late check in, and other small issues, but honestly loved this place, would recommend

    Very comfortable and welcoming! Great kitchen/porch area for hanging out. Right downtown, and just around the corner from InterCity bus — very convenient! Would definitely stay here again any time I'm in Auckland.

    Great location, friendly staff, perfect for a night stop over! I stayed in 4 bed female dorm room-quiet and clean. Bathrooms were clean, nice hot showers, hair dryer provided ! Good security - code to get in the hostel, locker rooms and locks on rooms.

    The kitchen was AMAZING with all the spices you’d ever need. Excellent security with multiple locked doors between you and the outside at night. Lockers available if you have a lock.

    There are comfortable and large social areas. Kitchen huge and well stocked, never any wait for cooking space. Bathrooms have a proper space to get changed while staying dry. Centrally located, 10 seconds from the airport bus stop and 30 seconds from the main city bus stop, 10 minutes to the harbour. The staff were unfriendly and often rude (except the Scottish girl is a gem). There should be lockers in the rooms. Cleaners didn't change duvet covers between guests, ew (no top sheets used)

    great hostel, with a great atmosphere and also in a nice location in central Auckland. One downside is that the rooms don't automatically lock when you close the door. This results in the doors basically always being unlocked.

    Miserable reception staff. I checked out 35 mins late which is fair enough my fault because I slept in, but keeping my $20 key deposit is shocking. I’ve been backpacking for many years and stayed in a lot of backpackers but the girls at the reception at the attic shouldn’t be working there. Bad vibe , unfriendly , rip off. Very disappointed and won’t be back .
