I'll take this hotel any day
If you're a budget traveller, I guess hostels would be the first thing in your mind. But after weeks of hostels - sharing rooms, bathrooms, and not to mention lugging stuff on places without elevators or too far from places you should be ....This hotel is a God-send. I tried two budget hotels and hostels in Auckland, but after trying this amidst the not so great rating, this will now be my go-to hotel in Auckland. Sure it's not five star but hey I'll take this over hostels. Location is dead center. It's near everything. What I love is that it's near the Intercity bus station - for the tours. The room maybe small (I got a compact double) but it works for me. My own bed and bathroom. Price is ok. Moreover, it's clean. Breakfast is 14.50 nzd for continental buffet which is better than toast and peanut butter. They have free wifi but after you used up the allotted mb for the day, you have to buy. If you don't use that much like me, no big deal. Staff is ok. They will do their best to help you. My only complaint is that they should soundproof some rooms cuz it can get noisy as you're near a busy road. But overall, I like this place. I plan a lot of visits to NZ and this hotel will be included in those.

Mattress is too soft
Travel with mum in March, stay in Compact Twin Room, room 506. 1. Environment is ok, however the mattress is too soft. Choose other hotel if need harder a bit mattress. 2. Kettle is provided in the room, however, there is no way to check the cleanliness inside the kettle. We choose not to make any hot drinks although they provide coffee and tea packets.

Good location; small
location; clean; clean
My stay was fine; the hotel is in a great location; but the windows don't block out the downtown sound; room was very small - but clean; bed was 'broken in' - if it was a newer mattress - the room would've been better; but overall a good place to stay if you're looking for someplace central Auckland.

you get what you pay for
loca,tion, helpfull staff, quality of breakfast
our stay was pleasant,the only thing i could be negative about was the small size of the rooms, however had we wanted we could have had an upgrade for a small extra charge, but did not take the offer as we were only staying 2 nights, staff very friendly helpfull and polite. Perfect location, hop on hop off bus stop across road, bars restaurants on doorstep, main shopping area around corner, bus station just one block away. Breakfast well worth the money

SMALL BUDGET HOTEL
Location, location and location
It is a small budget hotel and should not even be rated as a 3 star hotel. No wi-fi in hotel.
