All was good. Very good low budget accommodation. Best part was the people, both staff and non-staff.
Can be too hot since there&#39;s a shortage of fans and no central cooling. Don&#39;t know about heating since it was the wrong season.

Room had everything I needed. It even had a fan running so I was able to shut the windows to quieten street noise. Great location and always my first choice when in Auckland.
I had to wait for someone to attend reception. This applied to checking in and checking out, but signage explained this and gave phone numbers to call.
