We stayed in a double room with private bathroom. Room and bathroom were clean and tidy. Was a hot night, so a fan was provided. Was reasonable price for Auckland

Cold Water in Shower not working this morning. Hand Basin Cold tap dripping all night Couldn't turn it off. Some pesky little biting critters in carpet. Other than that I would stay again. I thought the Reception Staff were exceptional. They were extremely helpful & very Courteous. Thank You! Barry

The property is 1-star. It does have a kitchen and beds, but everything is beyond basic. I've stayed in hostels around Asia, Europe and South America, and they've never been this bad. To start, the staff aren't rude, but they're not exactly helpful. They also failed to mention that they don't provide towels - I walked to Westfield, and all the places that sold towels were expensive. The atmosphere is also quite bad - it doesn't have the fun atmosphere that other places have - it just feels seedy. i ended up leaving and booking elsewhere, but they wouldn't refund my money. Would not recommend at all.

Felt very uncomfortable staying here as a lone travelling female, very creepy place with gangs of people on drugs standing around outside the entrance all day and night that would bother everyone who entered or left the building... not very pleasant. I Stayed in a female dorm, the room was clean, but the cleaners went through my locker and the locker of another girl in my dorm and left our things out everywhere, staff seemed uninterested when we told them. The kitchen was disgusting, and the toilet had no ceiling... can’t believe I payed to stay here... really gross
