“Good Location”
Reviewed 6 December 2011

Stay there for 2 nights, in 4 mixed-share room. Room is small. Kitchen, toilet and shower room is clean.
It is very close to restaurant, i.e. plenty of Asian food, Korean food! Supermarket is nearby, good downtown window shopping!!

Hi backpackers.
Our advice:don't stay in this one.it is a dirty place with useless staff.Double room $95 per nt-smelly and dirty bed clothes,one male toilet on the whole floor,no free internet,no free breakfast and every morning at breakfast followed by nasty a little chinesse woman who was checking on us if we didn't steal food...5* hostel????5* my a..!Only reason why we stayed in this smelly place was that we booked 3nts over internet and we payed before we saw room because we're so tired after long flight from Dublin.So pls don't do the same mistake as we did...Good luck

Excellent place for many reasons. The place allows 24-hour check-in, and I checked in at 1:30AM. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. It's a bit of a walk to the Auckland attractions. For the price, definitely look to stay here.

After a very long flight via Mexico City-Santiago de Chile finally i arrived to Auckland International Hostel very early in the morning and i was so tired so i check in and the receptionist said sorry i can't give you your bed until 1pm but he offered me to crash on the sofa for few hours...having a reservation on line :(
great location!! better than the other YHA,on the corner you will find Queen St and a lot of cheap asian food restaurants on the way up.
i met a lot of travelers in the week i stayed,they have very good lockers where i left my heavy stuff for one weekend in Waiheke Island.
the kitchen is very big,clean and organized so good for big groups and families.
if you are traveling with a car you need to book the parking lot at reception.
all the staff very friendly and helpful
cheers

Room Tip: very good size rooms for your luggage..

Reviewed 31 July 2011

The rooms, kitchen, and bathrooms were very clean. Rooms were pretty spacious and the kitchen was huge. Overall the place is fairly quiet too, since most of the party people tend to go out. Reception was very helpful and knew a lot of stuff to do in the area. It was great that they even have a deal with several tour buses for some free day tours. Most of the other guests were very nice. The bunk beds are quite squeaky though, which is one of the few downsides to this place.
