God Damn.. It's really cold, windy, and rainy day, but they turn on the heater until 12:00am. I couldn't sleep beacuse too cold in the room. really fxxxing cold. And also there is one more accident.I already told the receptionist that I have to check out early. But at the time, there was no receptionist and they did't get back my refund fee. So I HAD TO GO TO THE HOSTEL ONE MORE TIME FOR MY REFUND FEE.there was only bad memories in this hostel. PLEASE TURN ON THE HEATER UNTIL MORNING!! 진짜 추워

We arrived a few hours earlier than check in to drop our bags off & said we would come back at check in time. At check in time the room was not ready & the person on reception was totally unhelpful, was not personable at all, he mumbled & he slouched & leaned on the desk, & he told us the room would be at least another half an hour. He then overcharged us, despite me telling him I had already paid the deposit. When we checked out the new person at reception was vaping inside while he was working

Don't get me wrong, the rooms were nice enough, good view. It wasn't far from Auckland CBD but its uphill.. They charged a $100 per room deposit, of which we were all unaware of. I assumed we were just careless and didn't read the description but overheard other stayers on 2 separate occasions also shocked that there was such a large deposit. They need to make it clearer, not hidden in the fine print. To top it off, someone came into our room & emptied our bin even tho we didnt have the sign out
