Property Description

Among the facilities at this property are a shared kitchen, washer/dryer facilities along with free WiFi throughout the property. The rooms have a patio. All rooms at HIT Hostel are fitted with a flat-screen TV with satellite channels and air conditioning/heat pump. The hostel is located on a busy street of Auckland City and is known for its great restaurants, bars, clubs and shopping places.

Our standard check in time is 3 PM. We try our best to make the rooms ready before 3:00 PM, however we can't guarantee the availability prior to our standard check-in time of 3:00 PM. We would be happy to offer an early check-in if the availability allows us to offer the same. Please contact our reception to request for early check-in. Our reception timings are from 9 AM to 9 PM each day.

For reservations booked through our website, please contact our hotel reception to modify/cancel your reservation. We are, however, unable to modify/cancel reservations booked through a third-party website. We recommend you to contact the customer service where you made the booking initially.

Unless otherwise stated, the standard cancellation policy is 48 hours prior to the day of your arrival. If you cancel after the free cancellation period, the first night's accommodation fee will be charged. All non-refundable bookings cannot be modified or cancelled and the entire booking fee will be charged after the booking is confirmed with no refund or modification.

If you have made your booking on a non-refundable rate then full charges on the booking will apply as a No Show fee in case you do not arrive at the hostel. In case of a refundable booking, the first night of accommodation fee will apply as a no-show fee only if the hostel reception is informed that you will not be arriving. If the reception is not informed then the booking will still be kept active and you may be charged accommodation fees for the following nights.

At the time of booking, a valid credit card will be required to secure the reservation. If you have booked a room that offers a free cancellation then the Hostel will take a pre-authorisation of one dollar at the time of making the booking. The credit card will be charged at the time of making a booking if the booking is non-refundable.

A surcharge of 3.5% is applicable on all credit card transactions.

Guests who have checked-in and are seeking an early departure from their booking will need to advise the hotel by 3 PM, 24 hours in advance in order to avoid paying the full room rate for that night. However, in case of non - refundable reservations, no refund will be offered if you decide to depart earlier than confirmed on your booking.

The Hostel is 100% non-smoking including all rooms and public areas. A cleaning fee will apply if there is evidence of smoking in the rooms or public areas (NZ$ 1500 max).

The HIT Hostel will store your personal belongings left in your room for the maximum duration of 10 days after you have checked out from the hostel. The hostel reception staff will make genuine attempts to contact you to inform you about the lost and found item after your departure and options to have it returned back to you. All postage/courier charges incurred for the return of the items will be billed to the guest. In case we do not hear back from you, the item will be disposed of after 10 days.

Guests that depart leaving their room in an unpardonable state that requires excessive cleaning and extra time will incur additional cleaning charges. This will be processed against their nominated card used to guarantee / to pay for room charges. The damage recovery fee will include labour and materials. Any items taken from the room on departure will also be on-charged at the cost of replacement. This shall be informed to you via email. Also, a $50 security deposit is taken at the time of check in. This can be paid via cash or Debit Card or Credit Card.

Generally a very good hostel. I can't fault the staff, cleanliness and most details. I would only say that it's quite basic and that I imagine 2 showers probably isn't enough when the place is full, though that wasn't an issue during our stay. I'd have no issue recommending this hostel to others.

There are definitely better hostels in the area. Served it purpose for the 1 night I was there. Only one person on staff. Waited outside for 20 minutes before they were able to let me in. Kitchen was a mess. Overall not very impressed.
