  • This was a disgusting hostel. Although it is centrally located, right next to the Sky Tower and it's staff are semi-helpful, cleanliness was a major issue. I understand that Hostels are unlikely to be spick and span, but the kitchen was filthy with numerous flies and the bathrooms were in very poor condition, also. I was given a basement room where the ventilation shaft was very small. Although a fan was provided, it made no difference. Worst two nights I have spent anywhere. Do not go here!!

  • I really enjoyed my time while living there for 3 days last month. This hostel has very friendly & multilingual receptionists. They are familiar with the local knowledge so I easily found my way around the whole Auckland city. I stayed in the 6-bed dormitary & the room was quite clean & neat. Being located at the intersection, it got a bit noisy at night. Unlike to Napier backpackers, this hostel charges small fee for Internet access. Low point is the bathroom cleanliness. I'll go there again.

Luckily there are so many other beautiful cities around Europe which offer an exciting nightlife at half or even a third of the cost.
