Just cheap...

location, Reception is 24hrs.
Not too bad. i used a 8bed dom. The bed does not have a guard. The shower booth and Toilet are used by female and male together. But, it was cheaper price as far as i remember. So if someone want to save ur budget, choose this backpacker ..

Great location, Frustrating Check in

Location, Location, Location
Stayed 1 night in ensuite room. Staff member who eventually served us was lovely (simone) but by that till we had waited 10+ minutes just to be acknowledged while other staff sat around chatting, flirting and eating. Had to eventually call for someone from out back to get up and process our check in. Noisy part of town however if you left the bathroom fan on then it cancelled most of the 24 hour disturbances. Room itself mostly met expectations.

Worst place ever for couples with toddler

The hostel is a factory for young and single travelers. Our double bed room was too small, no window, no space to open luggage, no fresh air. Terrible stay overall as we could not sleep due to summer heat with no ventilation (the fan just added more noise). The double bed had an old sofa mattress (not a proper mattress) and was the worst bed we slepton in NZ. The kitchen is too small for the size of the place and there aren't any tables inside to eat. It is overpriced too. The rooms are real holes and they cost more than decent hotels in NZ! We hated our stay there!

Can do better for sure

location, storage in rooms, safety
It was a pleasant stay, but the noise from the bar is very disturbing. I liked the safety aspect and a card being given for the floor entry, the location is really convenient

Awful Experience

Staff Helpful, Great Location
It was an awful experience when I spend two nights in Nomads Auckland Backpackers Hostel, a single private room. But first of all, I appreciate the staff in front desk are really helpful and nice, the location of hostel is great. However, there's water keep falling down from the ceiling inside the bathroom all over the night, and I don't know where's the water comes from, is that rain? or just someone's bathing in the upper floor? That makes me feel terrible. Last but not least, there's obviously some dirt/stain on the blanket, I wonder if there's any cleaning after the backpackers checked out. It was really an terrible experience and I would never go back and would never recommend to a friend.

Great for meeting people.

Attached bar. Location
My first few nights here were great. Lovely room, upgraded for free to en suite. (I had booked on to a tour group that had a deal with the hostel) on my return (having now left the tour group) I booked the same size room but this time got a cramped, smelly, dirty room. Very unimpressed. The kitchen is pretty crappy. You have to search for bowls and cups. Good location, and plenty of backpackers around.
