BEST Hostel you could stay at, especially in Auckland!!”

Wow, what a gem! Unfortunately had to stay at some disgusting hostels in Auckland until I discovered The Station - So beautifully cleaned daily by professional cleaners, brand new beds, sheets etc, spacious rooms with big windows, clean kitchen and rad lounge room. Honestly for the price and what you get it's not worth at all staying at a more expensive hostel and this is cheaper than some of the worst hostels in Auckland you could ever imagine. Best hostel, have stayed many times on my returns to Auckland during my travels!

Really old and bad elevator have to walk up and down by self all the time.A bit far from CBD if walk (20-30 min) but easy for bus and even train and ferry due to not far from britomart which is the center of transportation in Auckland(10-15 min walk) Near supermarkets and shop.(5-10 min walk)

Hope to come back”

the staff were very nice, comfy beds and the other travellers

Kebede was amazing. He helped us with special requests which made our stay more enjoyable and ensured we'll stay again when in Auckland. Location was fantastic and a great crew of travellers to interact with. Wifi could be better and a few more plug sockets in the rooms could be better but they are first world problems really. Beds were comfy, kitchen space was clean and useable and the elevator made life easier. Highly recommended. Michael and Josephine

Great room, especially for the price. Only issue was I couldn’t close my blind all the way which affected my sleep. Also, it was a bit far from the main part of Auckland, there were no places to get dinner nearby except a Subway.

Free Wi-Fi”

So the best part of the Station is that it has free wi-fi which I have found rare in the Auckland CBD. It is just a 10 minute walk from Queen Street, there is a Pizza place next door and an Asian grocery store and a countdown just steps away. The rooms are OK, the facilities are decent and it isn't a dry hostel so you can buy and drink there without threat which is a nice change of place. I find it to be one of the better hostels in Auckland.

Cleanliness, staff and security

The station backpackers is cleaned daily to the highest standards, the staff are extremely attentive and nothing too much trouble. It is a smaller hostel with a really good family feel, which seems to attract a great bunch of people.

Nice beds, big lockers, kitchen facilities

I loved this hostel. It's right in the city with good facilities - hair driers in bathroom, lockers with electronic lock system, a kitchen with everything you need. Central TV room near kitchen - good social area. Good heating (helpful in winter). Friendly staff. The place also has an elevator - helpful with heavy bags.

Not as good as on the website”

price, proprety, staff

The backpackers is pretty quiet and clean I chose this " brand new hostel located in the heart of Auckland Cihoteas it's written for the locker in the room which is pretty nice when you go to the city and don't wanna take your laptop and valuable things. I get a very small old room with no locker !! True the bed is almost new but that's all, the hostel is not. And not in the heart of the city, you have to walk at least 5 minutes in an unpleasant street. My stay was not bad ok, but the hostel is so much different and it's not fair.

Values well”

I stayed in 4 female shared dorm. Pros -Staffs were corporative (provided me proof of address, worked for problems). -Satisfied for housekeeping. -The room had enough space to open a suitcase. -There were lockers in the room for everyone. -The room was far from the lounge, so it was quiet enough to sleep. -Wifi connection was stable on room floors. -A good distance for walking to the city. Cons -A person stayed in the same room didn't follow basic rules. (Doesn't lock the room, brings friends into the room in early mornings or about midnights.) And she continuously stayed there even after complaints involved the reception, so I had to move out. -The facilities (door lock, lift) often had issues. -A bit far to walk if you try to do things in the city. (If you have the choice to take a bus, would be alright). -Mosquitoes bites.

Excellent location ”

Location, staff, price

We were going to a concert at the Vector Arena, the location was perfect, because the hostel is only 3 minutes away from it. I think the room wasn't that flesh, but the price was according to it. The bathroom in the room was new. The carpet in the corridor wasn't clean at all, I think they should work on that. Our room was not noisy at all, it wasn't facing the street. We never saw the kitchen. Wifi worked ok. The pictures ares not the same as the ones you see in the pictures. But it wasn't bad! I would stay there, if I was going to the arena, the staff was really nice.

Great for peaceful night's rest”

Location, Helpful staff, Clean bathrooms

After many days of travelling, this hostel provided me a good night's rest! The place is rather quiet at night so that really helped. Laundry was easy to use, there are many kitchen facilities but I didn't use them. Sheets are clean, bed is comfortable (again, helped with good sleep). Location is great as I could walk 5-10 mins to get to Britomart area, and about 15-20 min walk to the Naked Bus station. There is also an Asian supermarket and gas station nearby for food and water. Pizza for only $5 just a couple of doors away! Staff at the hostel are very friendly and helpful.

Basic and boring”

Pros: cleaned pretty well every day, wifi was fair, location was close to train station, nice hot showers, beds fairly comfortable Cons: atmosphere was very boring, there isn't a very good common area to socialise, kitchen was very small, lockers were a programmable key code that sometimes didn't work (had to get them to reset it more than once) and the lockers could be easily opened (not that safe), building is quite shabby and run down, if you're on the 7th floor you have to drag luggage up a level from 6th floor. Staff aren't overly friendly but not rude. Pillows are very thin. Overall was ok for a couple nights but definitely not the best hostel in auckland.
