Liked: Friendly staff and clean rooms! You are around Ponsonby, which is a nice part of Auckland, but still like a 30 minute walk from downtown (or take a bus). But on the other hand it is a quite and relaxing, so if you want some day off, go for it!

Disliked: The common rooms in the main building have a very cozy atmosphere, but unfortunately it is possible that you end up in the building beside which is very basic and improvised. The have a very small common room and a kitchen. Hanging around there is not so nice, but you can still go out and to the house beside.

Liked: It's location Ponsby is very good and the kitchen we used was well equipped. The day manager was pretty helpful.

Disliked: We were in the apartment building next to the actual hostel and the building lacked any character, and felt cut off from the actual hostels amenities. The Internet is expensive, we ended up spending $20, and we didn't even use the Internet for any heavy traffic. The shower flooded as well.
