We were up in Auckland for a gig at the power station. Great location, clean, good value, helpful staff. Overall, would stay here again. We got a private room, it had all the basics that you needed and was tidy.

The rooms are clean and comfortable. Nice staff and the satisfactory level of security make it an excellent choice for a single traveller. Besides, it is not expensive at all. Those who want to travel with a limited budget can choose the hostel.
