The hotel is close to city about 12 min walking, and it poovides free parking, the stuff were good and helpful. The facilities are old, the heater was making big noise each time when it needs reheat in our small room during our stay. The price and the room didn't match our expectation.
Generally in a good location. We had a room at the back of the hotel. When we first saw the room on arrival we were concerned over potential noise from the traffic but it was not as bad as we first thought it might be. During the night we were woken up by noisy guests talkng very loudly in the corridor at 2.30 am. No real facilities at the hotel eg, Gym, etc. Generally we felt that the hotel was a little scruffy and needed upgrading.
Smartly presented hotel, functional and clean rooms. Well placed for shopping area / nightlife. Value for money.
Excellent help from the staff who attended to our needs ie :car parking, kitchen staff who provided an alternative meal for me as I was ill.Also the staff at reception
The staff were friendly and helpful. Room service was promt and on time. View was great from our room, and quiet from traffic
The room was very comfortable. The staff at Reception were particularly helpful. The bar staff and room service staff were obliging and friendly. They gave the impression that nothing was a bother.
The reception staff were excellent and the handy location to Vectar Arena. The curtains were hanging off the tracks, the carpet was tatty,the armchair was dirty and worn through, only three of the six lights went.
Being so close to the Vector Arena The decor is looking very tired and needs updating. TV reception was very poor.
Access to all city attractions, friendly and accommodating staff. Air conditioner warm air coming out so had to open door most of the time but noisy as on road (but unavoidable).
I liked the close proximity of the hotel to the city centre. I also liked the helpful staff. The room was very noisy - not from external sources (traffic, street, etc) but from internal sources (staff / guests in corridor & noise from fridge in room). Comments registered with hotel.
オークランド大学での会議に参加するための宿泊でしたので、ロケーションは大変よかったです。大学に隣接していましたし、繁華街のQueen St.にもすぐでした。 オークランドへの到着が早朝の予定だったので、午前中のチェックインを希望しましたが、残念ながら前泊を勧められました。
Great staff, decor and food! The free breakfast was superb and the coffee decent. Enjoyed the soaking tub. The soaps were locally sourced and cruelty free and smelled wonderful. Coffee could be better but that's all!
Very good location in the CBD. Hotel is way over-priced for what it is. You can book a better hotel with much better facilities for 1/2 the price.
The staff is patient & helpful. The bed was uncomfortable:(
everything suited our needs. We were at a conference and were only there to sleep and shower. It was pretty quiet for a central Auckland area. no
Maintained & cleaned very well. Excellent central location to events, trains, buses & shops. Great value.
good location in the heart of the city If more staff in reception would be great in rush hours
Kitchen facilities, but would not call it a hotel. Rubbish and cigarette butts on the stair case/ fire exit
Terrific staff service. I note "fair" above on cleanliness only becaue the carpet is showing a lot of dirt/stains - otherwise the room was very clean.
The location and staff were very good, and make me want to come back, Julia at Reception was very friendly, as were the others, and the young Canadian man at the internet was very helpful and a good laugh. The entertainment at globe was great too! price was a bit much, but other then that was great
Close to all the attractions of Auckland and friendly staff. Lots of shady characters hanging out in front of building, party noise all night long, and smelly.
Location The shower - I would rather use the coin slot type shower or pay $2.00 extra to have a continous flowing of water! One Reception staff causes long delay at check in time.
Price, location. No free Internet access.
Great location. Not impressed with the quality of the room and the facilities.
I liked the fact that I was leaving early the next day I thought it was over priced, I could not control the air vent blasting cold air into my room. there were'nt enough blankets on the bed. The bathroom was unclean so I went without a shower and felt unsafe when I went to my room as there was no lighting in the corridor my room was located on. It seemed dark and felt dangerous with drunk people wandering around randomly.
Location is excellent and the desk staff were very friendly The Disco music from the Nomad's Bar was very very loud even four floors above and played into the night. None of the microwaves in the kitchen and one stove didn't work at all. Of the two stoves that worked one could only be turned on high. Cleaning staff slammed doors and banged carts into room doors at all hours.
It seems like a lively hostel, with a nice bar and free meals included in the price. The room was quite and was ensuite, which made the room a good value for money. The double bed in the budget double room could have been bigger for 2 people.
Having sex with the misses on the top bunk with the windows open, looking out over the city. Small room, small bath room and the beds sucked.
Hostel was nice and clean, staff were very friendly On arrival they could not find my booking either under my name or my friends name. They soon found a room for us, but I would not like this to happen in high season!
i enjoyed staying there because it was very central and had very helpful staff
Perfect for backpackers, but if you're a group of three or more it's worth it to stay in a better place, like the Mercure around the corner. Attached to a bar (though rooms stay quiet), Towels cost $5 (+$10 deposit), ''free food'' is a measly plate that you can upgrade to a normal meal for NZ$4, some rooms have no windows or color. No TV's. Great info about things to do, though! Two doors down from cheap internet, heart of town, on the AirBus route from Airport ($20 round trip). BRING CONFIRMATION EMAIL because the people at the desk didn't know what to do with our reservation.
This is a fun hostel so don't go if you don't like meeting people or enjoying yourself. Cheap drinks in the bar and pool comps where you can win loads of different things - Fantastic!!!
Definitely the best thing going for this hostel is it's location. It's right in the centre and within walking distance of all the main attractions in Auckland, such as The Skytower, The Viaduct, and downtown shopping. \nThe travel desk is extremely helpful. The guy there was able to give me excellent advice on what to do in the time I had in New Zealand. I was planning on a full trip around the country but he advised me to shorten my route so that I could spend time in certain places. Certainly no hard sell from him. \nIn fact all the staff were helpful and it was good that the non-Kiwi staff still knew what they were talking about and could point me in the right direction (or were certainly willing to find out if they weren't sure).\nMy room was perfectly adequate although some of the budget rooms had no windows (probably why they were budget)\nI'd definitely stay here again
Everything was alright, but on the last day I found bed bugs. Need I say more?
