Liked: The bathrooms and showers are pristine! Can't imagine cleaner bathrooms in a budget-level dorm setting.

Disliked: When I first got to my room, there was a bit of a funky odor that went away after a while. It may be something that the cleaning staff uses when they clean rooms. My window also didn't stayed closed, which would be a problem for most people in the winter, but fortunately I didn't mind it getting a little brisk at night. The rooms are spartan (and the lighting not so great), but it's a perfectly acceptable place to spend a few nights.

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.

Disliked: None
