5.1 Passable

Cons:The place was a bit dingy and the shower took a very long time to warm up a bit.

A
2.5 Bad
Pros:It's close to the bus station.

Cons:Run-down overall. Really lumpy pillow. Couldn't open window to air out hot, smelly room. Not overly comfortable neighborhood. Paid more for this place than other hostels in Auckland that were much better.
