Liked: All in all quite decent hostel, large and well equiped kitchen (although one stove was broken). Bring padlock for under-the-bed locker.

Disliked: Bunks are a bit squeaky, way too few electrical sockets. I was there in April, if you go there in the summer might be very hot as there is no air-conditioning. WiFi not free unless YHA member. NZ Telecom ($19 monthly plan) however works good.

Liked: Hot showers 24/7 and plenty of them. Well equipped kitchen with cling film! Really, really helpful and informative staff. Actually, everyone who worked there is awesome! The facilities were cleaned and well looked. Fast and free wifi 24/7. Not noisy, but still sociable with a wide range of age groups. I was impressed by this hostel.

Disliked: Only 2 plugs available in a 4 bed room. The 'premium' rooms aren't that much different from the four beds except you have a towel and your bed made for you. The rooms got very cold, but extra blankets and heaters were available. At least we had windows-unlike some other hostels! In every room that we stayed in, one locker was broken so one person in the room missed out.

Liked: This YHA has an excellent kitchen. It's also on the route of the SkyBus from the airport.

Disliked: Rooms are crowded, and there aren't many outlets. EVERYTHING extra costs a bundle, from the wi-fi to luggage storage. Once you're there, you're stuck paying these extra prices. Also, there weren't enough showers to go around. Long waits at times.

Liked: The yha international is a good bet if you want a clean and organized facility. Like most yha hostels it is run more as a hotel and therefore you are less likely to meet or interact with fellow travelers if that is your aim. They have a good kitchen and a tv room for sky if that is of interest. Staff were also friendly. However in my opinion it is nicer to stag outside the city in mt Eden or ponsonby...

Disliked: The location in the city can be depressing and the hostel lacks atmosphere.

Liked: The kitchen was really good, it had lots of facilities and enough for several people to cook at once. The property was clean and the rooms were adequate for what they were needed for - sleeping in and leaving my suitcase etc. It was also very close to town in a central location, although you had to walk up a hill to get there.

Disliked: I disliked the amount of showers etc. there needed to me a few more. Also, I am not a member of YHA so couldn't get free internet.

Liked: I was afraid of the reception, because I read some negative comments about the staff, but for me they were really good. The facilities were nice and the location is very good.

Disliked: It could have free wi-fi or at least improve the wi-fi, because it was a 500Mbps link and I had to pay for that.

Liked: Good location away from the biz of Queen Street but still close. Great kitchen for self catering, like most YHAs.

Disliked: I got stuck with a very squeaky old bed so they could do with sorting those out, but no big problem.
