"Bed was great and the atmosphere between guests was fantastic. Quiet at night. Central but away from traffic noise. We would stay here again over going to a central city motel."

Liked: One of the nicest dorm rooms I've stayed in having been in hostels all over New Zealand over the previous months. Spacious and clean, and no bunk beds. Free internet was a big perk for me. Unisex bathrooms were kept very clean. No shoes allowed inside, but this added to cleanliness and homely feel. This is a quiet and peaceful place to stay, definitely not what you want if you're looking for a party. Staff, especially Seema the owner, were extremely friendly and helpful. Convenient to cafe' district of Ponsonby (great area!) and only a short walk to New World (my favourite full service supermarket). You can get to Queen Street in about 10-15 minutes walking, or there's a bus stop just outside. Really enjoyed my stay and would return.

Liked: We stayed there for one night, it looked clean, it does have a good location and free parking on the street. The only complaint was that my room (double bed) smelled slightly like cigarettes...A part from that, I do recommend this hostel.

Liked: Extremely helpful hostel owner. Very clean hostel. Reasonably well located - close to supermarket, Ponsonby and Queen Street. Reasonably priced accommodation. Free internet and wifi in the rooms is an excellent benefit. Decent breakfast available for $8. Fairly easy to meet people here over breakfast etc. Not sure what Lonely Planet is on about - this is a very good place to stay in Auckland.

09 October 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Comfy bed, good and cheap breakfast. Could do with a bit of maintenance work - door knobs fall off and toilet paper holders come off the wall. The hob doesn't work without a lighter but there is no lighter/matches there so we had to seek out someone who smoked. Only small things but annoying none-the-less.
