Yaping House
Reviewed 22 March 2011

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 room was nothing special but it was clean, which I think is most important. It was a little inconvenient that we had to go through the dorm to get to our room which meant that we had to be very quiet coming home late. All the rooms come with free wireless internet, which was great.

All the common areas seemed to be clean, too. The common room with TV had comfy couches and a big table with enough space for everyone. The kitchen was well equipped, with 3 fridges and two stoves. There were enough bathrooms and toilets in the hostel and they were all maticulously cleaned.

I wouldn't advise using the laundry though as it ruined a couple of our clothes.

The location is very nice if you're looking for a quiet place to stay in a nice neighborhood. It was a 7 min walk to the bus stops that take you to downtown and Newmarket and it had a fabulous view over One Tree Hill.

We enjoyed ourselves and I would recommend this hostel to every young traveller coming to Auckland.
