Positive Reviews

Good location in Auckland

This hostel offers a great location in Auckland. It’s close to Queen Street which is a popular shopping destination and many of the city’s attractions are within walking distance.

Great kitchen

Guests love the shared kitchen. It’s spacious and well-equipped and kept nicely clean. Guests like being able to prepare their own meals and save a few pennies.

Attentive staff

Guests are generally happy with the members of staff who work here. When an issue arises, they aim to offer effective and efficient assistance.

Negative Reviews

Issues with the rooms

Guests find some of the beds a little uncomfortable, remarking that the mattresses and pillows could be better; the beds also make an irritating noise when people move around on them. They also comment that the rooms can get quite hot during warm weather and there can be a fair amount of noise disturbance coming from other guests and from people outside.

Wi-Fi service strained at times

Although guests are happy to receive complimentary Wi-Fi, they feel that the service should be better able to cope with demand. At busy times when many users are connected, others are often unable to use it which is disappointing.

More amenities required

Guests report that there are too few showers and toilets compared to the numbers wishing to use them. In the morning and evening it is sometimes necessary to wait in line to use the facilities. Guests would also like to see more power sockets.
