Liked: Location

Disliked: Bed bugs which I've photographed and will be posting on trip advisor and other hostel booking sites should the manager not reimburse me for the night of the 7th because I would not stay there. For $8 you can get a continental breakfast… cereals and toast does not constitute a continental breakfast. For $ 8 I suggest you look around town for a better deal.

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: 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: 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.
