Liked: The hostel had a nice relaxed atmosphere. It was quite small and therefore had a friendly, family feel to it. The staff were very helpful. We got charged incorrectly without knowing but they were very honest and brought our change around later that evening. There is a nice outside terrace for the sunny days. Bathrooms are clean and wifi is strong in the rooms.

Disliked: The kitchen was a little bit small - nothing else.

Liked: Everything! I've spent nearly 2 months there! 10 meters from Queen St, the staff is really nice and very helpful too (a special mention to Charles and Candy!) Never seen bathrooms in hostels so clean, free internet connection (most of the hostels in the city charge you for everything even if you are a client) . I definetely reccomend this hostel if you are coming to Auckland, wether you are alone, with people, young or old it doesn't matter, you'll have a good time.

Disliked: Although the breakfast is free, it should have more variety of food in it.

Liked: Free Internet....although very very slow

Disliked: The door did not close and lock properly.....i was told to "slam" it to make it work! Just what everyone in other room's want at night...slamming door's! The room was tiny, and barely had enough for my stuff, let alone for 2 other's which is what the bed situation call's for in the room The tv aerial was broke on the tv, and when fixed had only 2 channels to choose from! Deluxe indeed! Finally, the window had problem's opening and closing, and when locked with the bolt loosely fitted to the window, all you needed to do was lift the window up and it opened...so technically never locked!! Was not enough room in the fridge provided for everyone's food, so at some pints you had to empty the whole fridge to get to your stuff, as it was at the bottom of stacks and stacks of food!

Liked: Location - 5 minute walk from downtown area. Many restaurants, cafes, banks along K road. Room and bathroom were clean.

Disliked: Kitchen was small and not well stocked. The plug-in burners were kind of crappy and the pans needed to be replaced. The kitchen was such a tight squeeze that people had to wait in line to wash their dishes.

Liked: Helpful, accommodating, communicative staff who answer emails extremely quickly. Good, hot showers. Good wifi in common areas and room. Laundry on site. Parking close by. Central location. Tons of information about activities throughout New Zealand. Roof deck.

Disliked: Breakfast was underwhelming, but the toaster oven was great. Hot plates are tricky. Not overwhelminglhy social place, so not too easy to meet people. It's literally kind of bland: taupe and grey. Is a bit pricey if you don't have a BBH card.

Liked: Well located just a few bus stops from the center of Auckland in the kind if funky kroad area. Breakfast and free wifi makes this a great little find.

Disliked: Our room had a view of a brickwall. Sounds echoed off it but not too late. Not a big deal for us but there are stairs and no lift so be aware if you have tons of stuff.

Liked: The location was pretty good, near to the airport drop-off bus, and opposite the free bus going into town. The walk into Auckland itself isn't far.

Disliked: Lot of people living there long-term, so it felt quite clicky and studenty with the long-termers getting drunk and stoned on the balcony every evening.

Liked: Being a 10-15 min walk from the city center had its good and bad points - mostly good. It was a bit of a walk, but good exercise, plus it was nice not to be in the middle of all the other hostels and bars. It was quiet and safe, the staff were friendly and there was free wifi. Breakfast was simple and serve-yourself, so I'd get groceries still.

Disliked: Could've been a little more social
