We stayed here in 2014 for 6 nights. At the time, a lot of places were booked out leaving only very expensive rooms! So we decided on this place as the location seemed really nice. Mt Eden is a good location and close to a nice cafe called Circus Circus. It was good to do the walk up the volcano...

Terrible place . Bathrooms are filthy . Kitchen is tiny and packed with very loud Chinese. Bedrooms are musty and damp. No heating in building. Loud Chinese woman who runs the place charges different prices to everyone .She charges whatever she thinks you can afford. Not cheap. Doesn't listen to complaints.

I started and ended my trip to New Zealand at the Yaping. It's located in a large, rambling house with a lovely view over the city. The house is a bit tatty, in need of redecorating, but perfectly comfortable. The owners are friendly and helpful - they even greeted me with a Christmas present! I slept well in a comfortable...

This place is a long way from Auckland central as stated. Good views and nice English guy on desk. But thats all the good I can say about it. This place has heaps of potential but badly run down. Cockroaches ,mice etc, damp rooms. No heating, when heating is requested as has been done by various guests they are ignored....

Run by Chinese woman a control freak who isnt interested in your complaints. A rude obnoxious person. English guy on desk a pleasant man but thats the only...

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights. We were biding time until flying out of Auckland and had run out of steam to keep exploring after 8 months on the road. So, we wouldn't have stayed that long if we were just passing through. We negotiated a deal over the phone based on the booking deals on one...

My boyfriend and I stayed in this hostel for a weekend to check out Auckland. Although we had trouble finding it (there are no signs indicating it and it's way up a hill) we enjoyed our weekend here. The receptionist was very friendly and upon arrival showed us around the hostel and the common area and kitchen. Our double standard...
