Really clean and modern! Stayed in a double room with private ensuite which was perfect. Kettle in the room which was handy, as well as a TV and free wifi! Really friendly staff too. Was easy and straight forward to get to from the airport. Decided to catch the SKY bus from the airport which cost $18 per person which...

Nice new rooms. Good facilities and very good location. Bathrooms good be bigger. And you have to walk 10 minutes to down town. Decent prices. Often gets fully booked, so book in advance. Would recommend.

A busy convenient centrally located hostel. Rooms clean and security tight. A small fan in the bedroom provided little relief from the heat. Reception staff were helpful and efficient. Great for short visit to Auckland.

Stayed here for 'Adele' concert with a friend and our 2 adult daughters. Very clean and comfortable, conveniently located and well priced. I believe there are rooms with ensuite so but we missed out on those and it really wasn't a problem. Would stay again.

Very clean and tidy, comfortable mattresses and the bunks don't squeak, but the rooms can get really hot at night, as there is no air-conditioning. The hostel has clearly been renovated recently, and it's quite obvious in a good way. Very small showers, but they were quite clean. There are no mirrors in the twin rooms, so you need to...

Important YHA well located close to Queen street. Plenty of food options around. We stayed twice one night in the same week, once with private bathroom and once with shared facilities, each option was fine, clean, convenient. Staff was professional and friendly as well. The terrace with view on the 3rd floor is definitely a strong point. Arriving by car...

Cleanish, comfortable bed but very small room, adequate shared bathroom facilities, would not have liked to stay more than the 1 night we did stay, front counter staff not very customer focused, probably would not choose this hostel again

I can only review the en-suite room as that is where I stayed ( Mr Boss only this trip). This is a refurbished place so my room on the 7th floor was nice and clean, near new, functional and modern. This was a hotel style room really, with a TV, tea/coffee making, all bed linen, towels and toiletries all included....

Great location and nice place, however the front of office staff do seem to have an attitude and dont seem to be the brightest bulbs in the box either. We requested an early check in as we would be arriving after 48hours travel with the expectation of no sleep during that time- and we where right- arrived at 8 am...

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.
