Great Atmosphere, the staff is friendly and welcoming! Comfortable and quiet, After staying at 7+ different hostels in Auckland, this one has to be the best (and cleanest) by far! The living areas are very relaxed and have more space than most hostels we have stayed at. The rooms are comfortable and quiet, and the shared kitchen was always super clean every time we went to use it! We loved staying here and had an overall very pleasant stay. Will book again!

God location. Good rooms. Toilets were adequate, price was very reasonable for Parnell, Auckland. Very good cafes closeby, bars, bistros close to busses to town, awesome modern cathedral and old wooden cathedral closeby.

Didn't like that the rooms were too small and the showers were not the best as people could look under the bottom of the doors and it was very non warming as I was asked a million and one questions then went up to the room and there was nothing to say welcome to your room
