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.

Where is the shuttle
It is in a great location. But it is a backpackers with a big noisy stairwell up the middle which transmits any noise everywhere. My bad for wanting to sleep. Otherwise I had a great stay. My one beef is that despite their webiste saying they had an airport shuttle - the reason I chose to stay here, there was no airport shuttle. But it is really close to the airport bus stop.

This accommodation had the most comfortable bed. Was empty - like most places in NZ. Had to pay for wifi, stayed in a Base in AUS vibe was completely different and preferred the Base in AU.

A shame you have to pay for the wifi.
Base has the comfiest beds. I had to stay there an extra night for them. This hostels conveniently placed for all your eating needs, has its own bar, and large common area. It's a shame you have to pay for wifi, and it's very far from the ferry terminal!
