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
5
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.

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.

Awesome cheap & central

Best location in Auckland, well priced, staff happy to help.

I am from Auckland but live a fair way out of the city. If I plan on spending the night in town and going out, I always enjoy finding myself a room to crash in afterwards to prevent driving or spending money on taxis etc. Nomads is the definition of a central downtown location, the staff were more than happy to accommodate when a friend of mine managed to misplace my room card, no extra charge for the card, upgrade to a room with a window, OR the late check out of 12pm. Fantastic service. Not amazing rooms, very small but for $80NZD I had my own private room on the top floor with en-suite and a great view of the city. Perfect if it's just yourself, although maybe not recommended if you end up with a couple of guests at the end of the night! :)

Exactly what you'd expect from a city hostel.

Location, friendly staff, professional.
7.7
If you've stayed in a few backpackers hostels in your time, you know what to expect. Great location (compensated for by the price- not very cheap!), professional and friendly staff, easy access to rooms, bathrooms for each room. No free wifi (although you can pay for it) which is a shame but that's to be expected in NZ.

Party hostel

good location, helpful staff, dryish hostel

Our stay at Nomads wasn't that great. Our room was really smelly and stuffy. It smelled like someone had vomited and it was left and no one cleaned it up. Our room had horrible ventilation. It was very noisy outside due to the clubs below. The rooms are too small for 8 people and all their belongings... only a small drawer to put things. The bathrooms are mixed gender with the toilets on one side and the sinks on the complete opposite side. This is a party hostel good for people who like to be out late- not for sleep. Also while staying here, I became ill with an extremely sore throat and ear ache. I'm not one to get sick and I would barely talk/swallow. A few days out of this hostel and I felt so much better. Wifi is for 24 hours and it's 4 NZD.
