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.

Happy resident
Good all round location, handy to CBD, my car parking area. Good hot water & pressure in showers. Housekeeping through out the site was daily & kept clean etc. May go back there again soon.

The local is really great. 10 minutes to queen street. But the cleanliness of bathroom needed to be improved.
