Liked: Clean room. Nice bed though bedclothes not so good.

Disliked: Kitchen was very small and on different floor to cupboard containing cooking utensils, pots & pans. Also on different floor to dining area (which was also very small). Lift was very slow.

Liked: They got exceptional hospitality . I would say there is nothing which i could find wrong with this hostel . If you look at Auckland city , there are plenty of options and in the peak season other back papers fluctuate their rates and sometimes policies too. But YMCA is very clear about their policies , rules and regulations. Apart from it their location is best in terms of proximity to the city.

10 January 2012 Gregory would recommend this property

Liked: I was hardly there but when I would arrive it was comfortable. It had adequate facilities for cooking and was only 10 minute walk from heart of downtown. It had an apparently nice physical fitness area for $10NZ (I think) and too bad it didn't have a pool; pools are such great places after lots of walking. Also, if I were designing such a place, I'd put a friendly bar with lagers and ales made on premises, but no drunks, it's the YMCA after all.

Disliked: For the price, I can't think of anything wrong. If I were designing it, I'd put a British pub and an Indian restaurant right on premises, with lots of Hindu statues. But it's the YMCA, after all.
