Good 7.6 From 23 reviews

Very good 8.0
Affordable accommodation in expensive Auckland
They have nice chil areas and clean washrooms. Washrooms on the third floor are far better than any other floor. Kitchen is very helpful when you are trying to avoid super expensive dine out in Auckland. Few minutes of walk from Sky Bus stop. Almost 30 mina of walk from Sky City hotel which is a common pickup point for many tours.

Very good 8.0
Good hostel a bit outside of the center
Not very central, but nice, clean hostel with big, comfortable kitchen/sitting area. The heating wasn't on so it was very cold in my room. They gave me a second blanket, which helped a bit.
