Liked: In the center of Auckland, cheap and good facilities. blockbuster played randomly in the lounge.

Disliked: the linen was clean but smelled like cold smoke. You could not open a single window in the rooms so the air was always sticky. door did not lock automaticly when closed from outside

Liked: very clean with a well equiped kitchen. Towels were available for use and extra blankets were there if needed.

Disliked: security precautions were in place (could not use the lift with out a key) but there were obviously ways around them as a randome person ended up sleeping in our room one night!

Liked: Cosy interior and just opposite the library.

Disliked: The kitchen is way too small and the 10 bed dorm would already be full with 6 beds I reckon.
