Immaculate facilities and room. Exceded all my expectations of a hostel. Showers and toilets were spotless. And single bed room was cozy. Complete with personal fridge. I was very impressed. Thank you YMCA Pitt street for making my concert night even more memorable!

I spent a great stay at YMCA. It might not be the cosiest hostel but it's very clean, quiet and has a perfect location right between the city center and K road where you can go at night.i would definitely recommend this place.

You can't expect 4-star standards when paying for budget accomodation, and my expectations when getting to this property were perfectly aligned with that. The location is good, quite central, and the shared bathrooms were very clean. But these were pretty much the positive aspects. I booked a single room, which I knew upfront was pretty small. No problem with that...BUT,...

I always stay at the YMCA whenever I visit Auckland. The staff are always friendly, the bathroom facilities are always clean and the rooms are just the right size. The mini frigde in the room is an added bonus! Convenitently located close to the city centre - except for that hill when you're dragging luggage :) Although being at the...

I attended a conference at University of Auckland. YMCA hostel is very convenient. I spent most of the day in the conference and it was good to come back to a clean and friendly place. Very basic, but it had what I needed: a solo room with decent bed, clean showers, and clean toilets. Only wish the dining room and...

I was impressed. I'm a solo female traveller and had a very busy weekend helping with a friend's wedding so needed to be able to come and go at all hours and get some good rest when I could.

Very nice hostel. Rooms small but clean, if a little cold. Stayed 2 nights. They have 24 hour reception. All staff were friendly and engaging. Functions on most nights. Lots of outside noise, but with the proximity to K Rd, I guess this is expected.
