    I only stayed one night, but the hospitality was phenomenal. I could also fully trust leaving my backpack in my room for a full day which was a huge bonus. There was construction going on at the time, but it didn't matter cause everyone was very friendly & accommodating. Highly recommend!

    Enjoyed my stay here, the staff were super friendly and helpful with anything. Facilities were really clean, beds were fine, love how they aren’t bunk beds. Short walk to city centre and supermarkets. I would stay here again.

    The building key is the same key for the room and there were no lockers so I feel security could have been better. But the place is in a great location, decent sized kitchen, clean rooms and bathrooms. Beds are not the best but not the worst either. There is parking but only 5 free spots. Once it's full you'll have to pay to park on the street. It was nice and quiet while we were there.

    Verandahs was a great place to stay for Auckland. It's not too far from the city center, and the area that it is in is great if you want to go out to eat, there are bars, and a grocery store all near by. The park behind it is also lovely. I hired a car, and parking was decent. There are five spots available on site, and street parking for a fee. Pro tip: if you are there on a Sunday street parking is free. Kitchen was lovely, large with nice areas to relax.

    Really great neighbourhood, easily walkable with lots of cool cafés and shops, but still accessible to the CBD. There are some major renos going on in the basement you may have to step over, but nothing that gets in the way of using any facilities.

    Really nice place! That don’t have individual security lockers in the rooms, which I expected every place had, but that is the only downside. People are nice and the place is clean

    It was ok... the bathrooms sucked because there were only 3 and they were toilet and shower combined. So if you had to go to the bathroom or brush your teeth you couldn’t until three people were done showering. We were always waiting. Old house and uncomfortable beds.. all in all, ok but not great
