Liked: Fantastic location, 2 minute walk from Sky Tower, within 10 minutes walk of all central bars, clubs and shops. Friendly and helpful staff, especially liked Andrew!

Disliked: As with all larger hostels, it lacked any real individual character, and didn't wan't really a good place for meeting people. Wifi is quite expensive and the breakfast option is overpriced.

Liked: The air shuttle from the airport dropped you right outside the front door. Publis transport was also from this stop to the Britomart where trains and buses to all locations could be caught so if finance is a problem the transport system is easy to get too. Food shops and supermarket were also very close. Great place to stay if you want to be centrally located.

Disliked: Nothing staff were friendly and accommodating and there was plenty of facilities on board if you needed them.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: It is far far too big, classic example of trying to maximise profit without caring about the quality of the rooms and facilities.8 floors full to the brim of people, tiny rooms that feel like an office space with no windows, sweaty, uncomfortable and smells.Bathrooms meet looked like they were cleanedOne small kitchen for 8 floors worth of people and no clean pans, obviously they say clean your own pans but lets be honest no one does that.My bed wasn't made web after I aske 3 times.If you don't care about where you stay and are just looking for a bed a your be drunk an hungover stay here, otherwise avoid as I felt like I was falling ill

Business / conference, City break

Liked: Location was fantastic. And price for that location almost worth it.

Disliked: Unclean. Terrible crowded, smelly bathrooms with 30sec timer showers. Temperamental lifts and my room key stopped working twice whilst I stayed there for 5 days. Room wasn't ready on arrival, anytime I needed to go to the front desk (eg to get my key reactivated/ check in/check out etc) was in a long line for a long time.

Liked: The staff were so friendly and so helpfulThere was lots on offer - travel desk, cheap wifi, big kitchen, plenty of showers, cheap drinks at the bar

Disliked: The beds were really uncomfatable, like springs digging in ya, They need to replace a few matresses. The were alot of signs around about saving water, yet most of the bathroom taps and some showers leaked water.
