Well overall experience was ok. It was not that cleaned but one advantage was that it was in the heart of Auckland CBD.

Cheap stay in the core of the CBD. The hostel needs maintenance though, it’s old, smelly and doesn’t give a feeling of cleanliness. The fact that they require you to bring your pillowcase to reception on checkout makes you wonder much. The staff is very friendly though. I’d suggest stay here only if necessary
