Positive Reviews

Central location represents value for money

Auckland’s big-ticket attractions – the waterfront, Queen Street, Ponsonby and the central business district – are all situated in very close proximity of this property. Given its outstanding location, many felt that this hostel represented outstanding value for money.

Superbly friendly staff

The reception team at this hostel is outstandingly friendly and helpful. They do their best to offer assistance to newcomers, proffering free maps and directions upon check-in. This went down well with guests, who appreciated the attentive, thoughtful service, something that wasn’t necessarily expected at this price point.

Good facilities, well-kept interior

In terms of amenities, this hostel’s laundry and kitchen areas came highly commended. Unsurprisingly, this property attracts mostly budget-minded travellers who were grateful for these thoughtful facilities. Also, the interior here is well-kept and clean, with the bathroom areas in particular earning top marks for tidiness.

Negative Reviews

Kitchen and bathrooms facilities too far apart

It was noted that bathrooms and kitchens are located on every other floor. This alternating layout was a real inconvenience for those whose rooms, purely by chance, were located on a floor without these facilities. Many felt that this brought a disconnected feel to the property at large.

Just the basics

This no-frills hostel proved to be just too basic for a number of guests. Also, many were unhappy to find that certain amenities – like Wi-Fi – were available only as added extras.

Small rooms, noisy units

Many commented that the rooms here are on the small side. While this was a disappointment, others were more bothered by noise, which seemed to emanate from both adjacent units as well as from busy nearby streets.
