Liked: This hostel is possibly one of the nicest hostels I have stayed at. Clean, modern, friendly, great slightly 'alternative' area of town. Staff more than accommodating. The other travels at the hostel were so friendly and considerate of others. The rooms had a/c and were quiet and comfortable so sleeping was very easy!

Disliked: The wifi sometimes lost connectivity which was a bit annoying but it was free!

Liked: one of the cleanest hostels i've ever been! Nice kitchen area and enough space in a 6 bed room. There was nothing really to complain about. A little bit of from the main city but the bus coast just 50cents or you make a little 15 minute walk ;)

Disliked: a tour booking service would be great!!

Liked: Last minute booking and there was no problem arranging for late check-in. Free wifi and secure luggage area were a boon. Clean and freshly decorated and relatively convenient (20 mins walk ish to CBD). V easy from the skybus

Disliked: Well, can't help this, but it's a relatively new building with not a lot of character

Liked: Within easy reach of Queen Street, the main street in Auckland. Free WiFi is a great bonus, very clean place. The only slight negative was the kitchen was too small to accommodate the number of guests, dinner time was a bit crazy. Would recommend the hostel.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Location is very central (2min to Queen Street) and also the airport bus stop is just around the corner. The interior is brand new and everything was clean. In constrast to almost all other hostels in NZ, wi-fi was free at Newton Lodge, which is very confortable to manage your further travel plans. Staff was also very helpful (e.g. very flexible when we asked for late-night check-in) and friendly. I'd definitely recommend this hostel when staying in Auckland.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
