Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Ideal location to explore Auckland. Clean, tidy and bright. Facilities and all amenities are considerately provided. Staff are so kind, helpful and hospitable. My encounter with Jamie in the front desk was a happy, serendipitous and memorable experience. He tried to help and delight me in every way possible. With my injured waist, he even helped me to carry my luggage downstairs. The feeling and vibe was extraordinarily positive. I recommend.

I've stayed in alot of hostels this wasn't great...start with the positives it was very cheap,good kitchen area and they cleaned areas thoroughly . Bathroom and toilets were OK cleaned regularly. The rooms are tired they need a re furb , the beds were comfy but there was just a tired feeling. As a brit I didn't feel it was particularly friendly and as a solo traveller I found it not particularly friendly. I don't think it helps there's no nice views or outside space. I personally would only recommend if you are in a group and want somewhere cheap

Overall, the hostel was great for the basics - clean, simple, enough space to yourself and the appropriate services to make the stay comfortable and easy - food location as well. However, it’s right next door to a live music venue that would be playing loud music until midnight/1am and was so loud that it felt like it was in my room! Made it very hard to sleep and frustrating when I was getting over jet lag and trying to sleep at 9/10pm. There were also very loud pipes in the room that would make loud noises with rushing water. I stayed in the 20 person mixed dorm and found everyone to be friendly and respectful. Wouldn’t return here because of the noise and I didn’t feel they had great service - staff didn’t do much for checkin and no hostel activities or services.

Really enjoyed my stay here. Did one night in a solo room (extremely comfortable, nicely decorated and towels provided). Other nights were spent in a six bedroom dorm - also comfortable and spacious. Communal areas all very clean and well maintained. Only point to note is that the dorm I was in faces the main street and the noise overnight was noticeable. Easily managed with earphones or earplugs but without those sleep might have been a bit hard. Not an issue in the individual room.

The staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean and in the bathrooms and showers there's free stuff provided. The location on K road is awesome, great for a night out. The kitchen is big and there is a nice lounge area on the ground floor. They also have a luggage room available.

Love it! Great place and excellent vibes. Staff and other occupants were so friendly and helpful, felt very homey. Was very clean and facilities were excellent. Could not recommend this place more! Location was alright, close to facilities but also close to numerous bus stops that take you to other main areas of town.

Great location, decent wifi, beds are good and the added curtains was a great bonus. Not as good as I imagined from the ratings but it's still okay. Plenty of people staying there, was a good buzz around the place.
