YMCA Hostel, Auckland
Won’t stay here again
I stayed here before and had a wonderful experience, which is why I selected the hostel upon my return to Auckland. Unfortunately, the experience was not so great this time. Cleaning had waned a bit as the bathrooms were not up to par most days. There were dirty dishes left in the refrigerator in the room. Most disgusting was when my roommate decided to bring a random person from outside into the room and have sex whilst I was in the room, in the middle of the day. I notified the hostel attendant who told them to leave. But to my surprise he negotiated with the roommate his return to the room if I permitted. I thought it was very unprofessional and discrediting to put a guest in that position. I was a paying customer deserving of comfort and security. If I did not care about those things I would have just stayed on the street. But I do and both were violated by my roommate and the attendant failed to validate my concerns by negotiating with the offender and failing to enforce company policy (and if no policy exists, it should!). I will return to Auckland... I will never stay at this hostel again.

A little awkward in a shared room and having to climb up to the bed. Power outlets were lacking and just a floor fan for cooler air/circulation.

Book Room but didn’t get Room
I booked a single room and I recieved the booking confirmation. On arrival, I was told that the previous guest did not check out and I had to stay in a 4-men bunk. While it was an experience but this doesn’t bode right for a hostel

One week end of summer holiday stay
Stayed in single room, which was small, as expected. No air con or fan but climate bearable in late summer with window open, and no flies or mosquitoes! No noise insulation and corridor light filters under door, so bad luck if you're a light sleeper like me, hence my lower rating for comfort! Showers and toilets were kept clean.
