This YHA is modern and lovely, newly refurbished to a very high standard with lovely decor. Location is very close to CBD so within walking distance to many places. Bus stops nearby. Great view of Skytower at night. The rooms and amenities are immaculate and kept very clean. I stayed in a 4 bed female dorm with ensuite and it...

Super clean hostel and brand new decor in room. When I checked in, the European man who was at reception was super friendly and helpful. When I checked out in the morning, I asked where I could leave my luggage as I had an evening flight. I was informed that I would have to pay for a locker to store...

I was a little walk up the hill, but once we were there it was like coming home. People were friendly. Everything was easy to get to. The staff was able to help better than a tour guide. I have told everyone I meet.

The room we had was an ensuite double. It was perfectly clean and looked brand new. A nice view of the sky tower. I loved the coffee and plunger; and felt very safe and comfortable. I think the price was reasonable. The location of the hostel was great near to the city centre and restaurants etc. Highly recommended. Well done...

2 nights stayed in this YHA. The room and facilities were all worth for the money paid. Reasonable and comfortable hostel compare to the other in Auckland city. They have a very good location in the city area. Our room comes with ensuite bathroom, it's clean and well-equipped. Wifi is strong at each floor.

We stayed here after flying from the UK via Singapore. We arrived in the early hours of the morning but there was no problem getting access to the hostel and checking in. While it was secure there was someone on the nightshift keeping an eye out. We stayed in a queen room with en suite which was very comfortable. It...

Was a little hard to find initially, but once we got there the service was great, reception was helpful and everything was so clean and new looking! Got a queen ensuite room, for a hostel room it was huge! Shower was spotless. Had tea, coffee and even a coffee plunger! Towels were provided which was helpful, and little packets of...

I enjoyed my stay here. It is warm, comfortable, clean and friendly. The kitchen is really well appointed and there are nice communal areas. The location is very central yet not noisy. Handy to the airport bus. I was attending a conference and needed a budget option and I am really pleased I chose the yha.

As a point of first stop contact because Auckland is a major airport this place was a tad annoying. Obviously a lot a lot of people stay here because it's a very large ex hotel. The front desk didn't have any of the YHA (tear off pad) maps of the city which was the first thing I asked for on...

Hi Katey Thank you for the commentary on our hostel which I'd like to address in two parts. Firstly regarding the hostel experience, it is unfortunate we ran out of maps and you are quite right we could have called the other hostel to see if they had any. However we would not be able to have a staff member...
