Being kept awake all night by drunks the first night and the sixth night. It was dirty. My room stunk of cigarette smoke. People smoked and vaped in the lounge which was next to my room and I am very allergic and asthmatic. People partied all night long. The office was opened limited times had to wait to check in. I foreshortened my stay and told them it was because I needed to sleep at night and was offered no reimbursement. The was no staff or owner presence. There were only four toilets for place.
Nothing really. I do not recommend this place to anybody. It is far from everywhere.
Limited office hours for checking in and out, not identified at booking.com. They charge extra 2% for credit pard payment. Room was in very old status, very dirty (towels, bed sheets, etc). Internet did not work during my short stay. I also could not sleep because some guests did not followed the rules and stay chating and drinking outside of my room until 2330. Bad experience overall.
Nice area of Auckland
Reception is unmanned between 1 and 4, so check in involved sitting around for an hour and a half after calling, trying to stay awake. Their idea of off street parking is a driveway where 5 cars can block each other in. On street, you have to move your car every two hours or face parking tickets. The room we slept in was opposite a hinged door that slams shut, every time someone walks through it. It is run down, a backpackers - not a lodge. The facilities are decidedly average, all in all serving as a harsh reminder of the desperation we were under when booking here...
The hostel is very well located.
I had bed bugs in my room. I send the hostel an email so that they would know and act accordingly for the next guest. I also asked for a partial refund because I had really horrible two nights in my room. I didn't even get an answer from the hostel.
