A lovely spacious clean place to stay : top notch !

Good 6.0
Not worthy of the rating it currently has
A rather typical hostel, certainly without any of the comforts of a hotel by any means. Locations isn’t wonderful. And there certainly was no free parking which was the major reason I stayed...

Great common area, easy check in, lots of useful information available about the area, clean. A little dated, but great for a short stay.

Convenient location, but not very comfortable
Convenient location for walking to major sites. Just a couple minute walk to a large grocery store. But room 3 (single room) was smelly and right next to an exit, meaning that I was disturbed by anyone coming in or out of the building during the night.

2 night stay in Auckland on first arrival in NZ. Welcoming staff and fellow backpackers. Easy to walk into city and good supermarket/eating places close by.

Verandahs great location
Verandahs suited my stay and the location is very convenient. Inside Verandahs is warm and comfortable and relaxed. The backyard is great for chilling out. Parking is a challenge. Two supermarkets nearby. Restaurants, bars. Queen St not far away.
