It is great location at the city centre. several supermarkets around the area, easy to go to mount Eden (15 minutes). Bus stop nearby can get to any other place easily. Netflix in Common room. Clean bathroom and toilet. Fast-speed wifi at common area and inside the room.

This yha was just round the corner from the yha international, both great locations, just off queens road. Accessible by the skybus. I think this one must of recently been refurbished. It felt more like a hotel! Awesome hostel, clean, modern. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm, lockers were available. Each bed had a light and charging point. Really...

Very clean and quiet. We had our own room & bathroom on the top floor. We could see the Skytower from our window so that was a nice bonus. Kitchen was clean and spacious as well. Great first experience! I needed to borrow a hairdryer and all I had to do was provide a deposit and they gave it back...

You will get your typical YHA standard here. It is very clean, quiet and safe. Relatively close to queen street. Comfortable bes with personal lights, lockers and plugs. Could however use a few more bathrooms and toilets.

Thanks for your feedback following your stay with us. In our recent refurbishment we added 20 en-suite rooms, both private and shared which has freed up the public ones located on each floor in the hostel. Steve - Area Manager.

This hostel is modern and centrally located. You have two normal powerpoints as well as two USB. So you can charge your laptop, tablet, phone and gopro at the same time. Friendly staff, all night long.

The renovations have made this hostel comfortable & clean. New carpet, new furniture, new fittings. Appreciated the new bunk beds & mattresses - comfy & clean, no squeaky bunk beds! Black-out curtains in bunk rooms also appreciated for a good nights sleep. There is only one or two showers and one or two toilets per floor - so be prepared...

This is the first hostel we stayed in on a short trip to New Zealand. It is very close to where the airport bus stops. The staff was extremely courteous and our bunk bed room was small but clean. Internet was free. There is a dining area with plenty of space. We didn't use the kitchen.

Overall a nice hostel. The room's shower could use a few hooks and shelves in the dry area. Dining area has a number of small tables. As a result it is harder to meet other travelers. Would be nice to have more larger tables to make it easier to meet others. Lots of restaurants and an Asian supermarket nearby. Major...

Great value for money; friendly, efficient staff; excellent location. Clean, attractive, well-designed rooms. Provided more facilities than I expected. Even though my grandson & I were probably well outside the age range of the most common travellers, we felt very comfortable using all the facilities.
