Average hostel. Fine for one or 2 nights but not the best. Kitchen facilities were very poor and always dirty. Would not stay here again. If you are getting the bus into Auckland it is pretty far from the bus station and up a huge hill if your backpacking. Much better options available

During last 3 years my favourite Auckland YMCA hostel rised the price for single room from 13€ to over 50€ for 1 night. Therefore I was trying to find another place to stay, but cheaper if possible.I have chosen K Road City Travelers. It has great location just on the K´road, good bed, bathroom ok (some mold on the ceiling),...

We've been in this hostel when gun's 'n roses were in town and there was no other free hostel. We knew it was bad that's why we were'nt shocked and it wasn't as bad as we thaught. It's just pretty dark in there, dirty and doesn't smell very good. Bring your own bed sheet or inlet then you don't have...

Ugh, we booked this hostel on the weekend of The Guns 'n' roses concert because basically everything else was full. Let me say first, yes, we survived but no it definitely isn't the best option whilst in Auckland... rooms and beds are not clean, neither are the toilets and it is just so noisy at night. Stayed there two nights...

I stayed here 5 nights. The only goods things about this hostel is the emplacement (crossing between K Road and Queen Street, the two mains streets of Auckland) and the wifi (very good). The kitchen is too small (only 2 hobs for cooking in the second floor), same for the dinner room. The common area are not clean. It's very...

Young people staying up til wee hours drinking and yakking which doesn't make them bad but you can hear everything thing from rooms. They don't cleanup after themselves. You have to walk thru the common rooms to reach the "shared bathrooms". The hygiene there and in the kitchen leaves a lot to be desired. That being said, the location is...

We stayed at K Road 3 times and enjoyed every one. The free Wi-Fi is very stable, there's computers to use for free, the dorms are not too big (only 4 bed dorms) and breakfast is included. That's a service we hadn't had in other hostels where we paid more. The first time we stayed there, there was a little...

The place stank. This is a place frequented by disgusting teenage hostlers and has even some long term "residents". Guests dont even clean the dishes and the premises are a mess. One night I heard a bunch talking about drugs and stuff! And not to forget the noises in the wee hours!

The staff is quite okay and the rooms are more or less clean. But the worst part is the kitchen, everything is dirty and although they do clean it this does not really change anything. We tried to cook a few times, but it is just disgusting. The bathroomes on the other hand is quite okay and we really liked...

Great location with lots of potential. WiFi included, helpful staff. However, poorly maintained - repairs needed in every bathroom and toilet and kitchen. Walls and ceilings were the dirtiest I've seen world-wide and haven't been cleaned IMHO for at least a year. Carry out basic repairs and cleaning and I'd consider staying again.
