Everything was alright, but on the last day I found bed bugs. Need I say more?
Definitely the best thing going for this hostel is it's location. It's right in the centre and within walking distance of all the main attractions in Auckland, such as The Skytower, The Viaduct, and downtown shopping. \nThe travel desk is extremely helpful. The guy there was able to give me excellent advice on what to do in the time I had in New Zealand. I was planning on a full trip around the country but he advised me to shorten my route so that I could spend time in certain places. Certainly no hard sell from him. \nIn fact all the staff were helpful and it was good that the non-Kiwi staff still knew what they were talking about and could point me in the right direction (or were certainly willing to find out if they weren't sure).\nMy room was perfectly adequate although some of the budget rooms had no windows (probably why they were budget)\nI'd definitely stay here again
Perfect for backpackers, but if you're a group of three or more it's worth it to stay in a better place, like the Mercure around the corner. Attached to a bar (though rooms stay quiet), Towels cost $5 (+$10 deposit), ''free food'' is a measly plate that you can upgrade to a normal meal for NZ$4, some rooms have no windows or color. No TV's. Great info about things to do, though! Two doors down from cheap internet, heart of town, on the AirBus route from Airport ($20 round trip). BRING CONFIRMATION EMAIL because the people at the desk didn't know what to do with our reservation.
This is a fun hostel so don't go if you don't like meeting people or enjoying yourself. Cheap drinks in the bar and pool comps where you can win loads of different things - Fantastic!!!
