I stayed in a pod dorm and it was fine. Clean and in good condition, although I would have appreciated better security. No in-room lockers, just bags left on the floor wherever. I had a key to the dorm room but with multiple other occupants, it was left open whenever I came back to the room. Shared bathrooms are very small and were wet all the time, but reasonably clean.

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.
