        Bad experience ”

        Pros. Close to all the sights in Auckland. Not to expensive for a double room. Staff friendly and welcoming. Cons. Had a window in the room on a main round 30s away from a fire station. Had to keep it open all night due to no aircon and a really hot summer in New Zealand. Not a safe area as a homeless man entered the building and harassed us and the other guests. When he was asked to leave he punched the receptionist. The door to enter the building needs a key fob to open it but I witnessed this guy force it open with a strong yank. We booked for 4 nights but left after 3 as we did not feel safe and are campervan was ready for the road. I would recommend tmacs hostel 10 min walk away

        An average clean hostel ”

        The place is clean and well managed, but however, the room is so small and the ventilation is poor. We stayed during summer our room is hot, no electric fan or air conditioning just small ventilation in the ceiling so we need to open our door everytime we sleep during the night. Anyhow the place is well maintained better for the other backpacker I've been, the shared kitchen and toilets are clean, also they have luggage storage for free if you want to leave your bags for a while.

        Pros are location, cons are everything else poorly equipped kitchen, dirty showers, very dark and no atmosphere, think about it if you fly a 13 hour flight around the world and your first destination is Aukland don’t make this your first place to stay you’ll get home sick in one hour and want to go home and trust me the flight back to your own bed will be worth it after a night in this hostel. Good location though. Reception needs to smile at the end of the day you are welcoming back packers who are paying good money to stay in such an average room one bed in a room no towels and also I would get new bed linen it’s needed ! End on a high note was a quiet hostel but that’s because I guess it was a week day. Only stayed one night was enough though.

        Okay”

        The kitchen is quite small, and when several people are cooking at the same time, it's crowded. I got a room that was facing K-road, which means, it comes together with the noise from the pubs and on weekends, it could go until 4am. Friendly staffs, great location to grab food within a short walk and meeting new people (if the right people are staying there at the same time) All in all, it's just an okay experience; not too bad

        Not a safe area at night”

        They offer some rooms with no window, I book one where this wasn't stated, assuming it'd have a window, but no, it didn't, and ventilation, in my opinion isn't great. In my case I didn't need to use the heater as it was hot, but there's a sign saying "do not use-risk of fire", so what's the point of having it? I asked for some tips at the reception and the girl didn't really know what to recommend... Also, not the best area from dusk to dawn, pretty unsafe, drunken people, lots of homeless...
