I was happy to stay here having spent too many nights on the lash in Auckland! It was clean, comfy, central to everything, and I liked having the time to chill out and relax. I found the staff to be polite. I think sometimes people expect too much... I have found that I get equal treatment from staff in a backpackers as in any hotel, yet you're only paying a fraction of the cost? All in all, I was quite happy as it suited my needs!

Staff very unhappy

This seems a good hostel on the surface, with a superb location. The manager, Julie is very helpful although the staff certainly are not. I found them very unhelpful & rude - it seems a large number of travellers are beginning to notice the same issues. It would be great to see someone working there with a smile - until then, maybe just deal with the manager for an excellent stay.

Good points - Has a fair size kitchen, outdoor smoking area, very friendly & helpful staff, allocated fridge space, superb location. powerful hot clean shower (singular). Not so good points - Mattresses in dorms urgently need replacing!! This doesn't cost much. You can't take the lift from ground floor. Only one men's shower per floor. I would have given it 4 stars if the mattresses in my dorm were not in such a ripped up state, with the sponge being exposed.
