    Very good”

    Overall had a good stay. I stayed in 8 bed female dorm which was clean and had lockers, though not much space to put your stuff. Some rooms are quite smelly though and people had to keep doors open. Bathroom was clean, kitchen spacious and they have a rooftop which is nice. Wifi is not very fast and works only on the ground floor. Staff was nice and check in really easy and quick.

    Pros- in city center. Skyline Bus from the Airport drops u off at 99 Queens Street and hostel is 500 m away. Cons- too many beds in one room, room smells bad. Couldn’t even take a shower. Book a better hostel the next day BUT if ur in a budget, then do what u gotta do.

    Kitchen is dirty and way too small for the number of people in this hostel. Rooms are cramped and no aircon so window has to be left open and there’s a lot of noise, although this is expected in a city. Just needs a bit of refurbishment but location is perfect.

    Attentive staff, great location, decent value for money

    We were informed that there was a mix-up with Agoda and hostel was overbooked for the type of rooms. Frontdesk gave us the closest equivalent (double room without shower), and made a small (and much appreciated) gesture of goodwill. Room had window, was clean, just got a bit noisy at night given the partying crowd on street. Overall, good value for money, and would recommend to others.

    location

    We stay here just for one night this time and if you are very easy going, I def recommend this hotel. You can make lots of friends. Walls are very thin so you could hear what's happening next door, but if you are not spending lots of time apart from sleeping then stay there. Very clean and the location is perfect. I will stay here again.

    Located near everything including bus stops to airport and hop on/off bus. Close to shopping and food area. Very good for backpackers and young folks, not ideal for Couples as the Double Rooms are tiny, untidy (ours had bed bugs too).

    Hap hazard check in, less than clean private room ”

    Check in was hap hazard. Was informed I had more than $600 to settle (we had paid) was given one key card for us both, but then pulled up on us both not being able to show the key cards for security. The room itself was as expected as a hostel double with en-suite, the shower was surprisingly powerful. However the room was in DESPERATE need of a vacuum with a heap of dust and previous guest nail clippings left for us, which really ruined the feel of the room in general:

    I was in a room where I wasn’t having a good wifi signal. I was paying 12$ for 7 days wifi so I could get wifi in my room and not only in common areas. Worst thing I did. I was rarely getting connected and when I was connected it was really really slow. Of course I talked about this situation with the staff that couldn’t do anything about it.

    Each level has different accomodation. I chose the one with a private bathroom and it was clean and tidy. They have a kitchen and a lounge room for all to use. They also have nights were they have a get together with hotdogs and sausage sizzle. Best thing is it I right in the middle of the town so it is a great location.

    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! :)
