Liked: Helpful staff, and good location.

Disliked: Maybe a bit too much partying, the staff always joining - which is fun - but you get a little bit of a unserious feeling about the whole place.

Liked: The location is excellent, easy to walk anywhere. It's also very good value for money for a double room right in the city centre! The bathroom facilities were great with plenty of showers and I never had trouble getting hot water at high pressure. The roof terrace and courtyard areas are also an added bonus! The hostel is also clean enough for us (and I can be quite fussy) but could be a bit cleaner.

Disliked: Whilst the kitchen has a lot of hobs etc. and is very big, it doesn't have enough pans that actually have handles!

Liked: Great place and great locación. It's not one of those hostels where all the people live permanently and make you feel like a complete strange.

Disliked: Lockers in the room will be a plus.

Liked: Location is fantastic, brilliant value for money. Facilities for organising your onward trip is good.

Disliked: Although the hostel organises nights for backpackers to meet each other, as a lone traveller I found the staff and the long term stayers a bit cliquey :o(

Liked: Cheapest hostel we found in Auckland, very friendly staff and excellent location. If arriving from the airport get the shuttle bus rather than a taxi, 3x the price. Vey clean and good facilities, gas cooker but no ignition, bit frustration when you have to find someone who smokes to cook your dinner. But loved everything and are going back at the end of next month.
