Im not going to repeat what all the other reviewers have said already- I totally agree with them. It is like a home away from home and we would have stayed another week if we could! New, clean, excellent kitchen, great location, internet is superfast, wonderful staff (Teresa is great!).
I dont know if there is anything that can be better, oh well maybe a heated swimmingpool.. Just joking- the place is PERFECT!
It was really wonderfully quiet , but I suppose that depends on your neighbours. I got the feeling that this is less "backpacker" and more "flashpacker", maybe a more mature crowd, and some people who work. I was told that the other Red Monkey was more of a backpacker hangout, as its a bit cheaper.
If you are spending some time in Auckland, go here!!
