After a great stay at a hostel on KRoad I was looking for somewhere a little closer on Queen St & this hostel seemed ideal. Free wifi & big windows in each room. It was $31 a room which I soon discovered meant a dorm room with a thin foam mattress sagging all over so that I couldn't get a... More

I can only say positive things about that hostel! The staff is incredibly friendly and organized. The place is tidy and the rooms are clean. The 2 kitchens have everything you need to cook. And of course the location is superb :-) you can walk to every place that is worth to see in Auckland within only a few minutes!... More

My review is short and sweet. Even though you may be a New Zealand resident/citizen with a New Zealand issued legal document (drivers licence and/or 18+ card) you are not welcome at this hostel without your passport. I prepaid online and stood speechless at reception when the passive receptionist broke the bizarre news. I demanded a refund and had to... More

Great location just off Queen street. Easy access for the airport bus stop. Building is slightly older but had everything you'd need for a backpackers. Free WiFi. Staff are great! Real friendly & welcoming! Home from home!

As a backpacker going to a backpacker's accomodation, I look for: 4 walls, a roof, a matress, decent common areas but most of all nice people. Because the good times you will have only depends on people you will spend it with (and that's the reason why I didn't stay at Base hostel which is nothing more than what I... More

Great location and the showers were decent (these are the only good things). If its hot and you need the window open your'e in for a Very noisy sleep due to the bar downstairs and the street sweepers that start at 5:00am. The staff were generally pretty friendly except on Sunday evening at 5.30pm when we went for a drink... More

I had no money, knew nobody and never stayed in a hostel before. Not only did they go out of their way to help me get me back on my feet they also left with unforgettable memories of that place.

I spent 3 nights in this place, for convenience. I didn't have a serviceable credit card and the price was within my budget, though certainly not what I would call value for money. Other nearby establishments offer one's own bathroom for less than the $85/night I paid. I booked a 4th night and was told by a large, native woman... More

Standard cheap hostel - no frills and maybe in need of a bit of a dust in places. Double room was a decent size with big windows but as it is right in the heart of the town centre you couldn't have it open for any length of time due to the noise. There a few flights of stairs to... More
