The location is super central
My single room had no window and no air, it was difficult to sleep due to the noise coming through the walls and the bed/mattrass was simply horrific. So the sleeping experience was very bad.
The staff are friendly and the location is fantastic, next to everything you need. Alcohol is allowed to be consumed in communal areas which is great for social bonding. There's a pool table and lots of free information available.
My stay this time around was poor. Unfortunately I was in a room with inconsiderate room mates. The room had a bad smell from long term stayers who were noisy and my bed was uncomfortable. The showers are unsatisfactory and there's often meat stench in the front entrance coming from the kitchen. Utensils, plates etc must be paid for and kept which is a bit inconvenient because I'd rather use, wash, and return it to the kitchen for free like most hostels. This means more clutter to carry around for short term stayers.
Bed was alright
Most disgusting, dirty terrifying looking room. All sheets, pillows and quilt cover were stained, the pillows underneath the cover were dark yellow! Had to pay $1 just to get towels even though we had a private bathroom, and they were disgusting and smelly too. The rooms were loud, horrible, dingy. Worst backpackers i have ever stayed in. Our table was an outdoor table with one rusty chair, our fan was packed full of dust.
The best part the hostels is situated in the centre of the city close to all amenities and the price is very good
Location was accessible to everything. At the centre of CBD
Facilities' cleanliness should be maintained.
With a stay at Surf 'N' Snow Backpackers - Hostel in Auckland (Auckland Central Business District), you'll be steps from Queen Street Shopping District and SkyCity Casino. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, multilingual staff, and luggage storage.
