Great budget stay
We stayed in 4 bed ensuite dorm room. Only 1 power point in the room to charge devices between 4 people. No fan or air con. The bunk beds were very squeaky which actually woke me up when I would move around. Reception desk people were lovely and very helpful but if you want a car space you will need to call ahead and reserve it as there are only about 8 parks. Location is great, only a few blocks from Cuba St and Te Papa museum / waterfront.

Just adequate
If you are driving this may not be the place.... there is no where to even stop in front of the hotel. We stopped in bus lane/red zone to drop bags off then found some expensive parking. We were put on the 8th floor... and their very old/doesn't sound like they've been maintained in decades elevators only go to the 7th floor, so we had to drag our suitcases up two narrow flights of stairs. Front desk staff rude, if you try to ask a question, they act like you are bothering them. Mattresses need replacing... sunk down to the box springs when we sat down. You can walk to the harbor front/CBD but it's quite a distance.

Comfort in great location
We had a lovely stay in a very well located backpackers within walking distance to Te Papa Museum, the waterfront, and Cuba street or shops in the middle of town; five minutes to New World supermarket and several buses stops including one to the the airport. The room was comfortable but being a double could have had another chair. Great views of the harbor and polite friendly staff.Loved it!!

Really good location right by Courteney place, if you are looking for a party hostel then this is the place for you. I'd however you want somewhere quieter to get some sleep then you probably want to stay somewhere else.
