I stayed for 2 nights over the Easter long weekend. It was a nice but old hostel. The location is fantastic, really close everything including bars and clubs.I arrived at 6am and went to the wrong hostel. Nomads has 2 hostels located one block apart and I accidentally when to the other one first but the staff member kindly redirected me to the other one. They have reception manned 24/7 which was good and really big common area on Level 1 which my friends and I were able to get out of the cold, charge our phones and get a bit of sleep. I stayed in a shared 4 room dorm, the rooms were small but had enough space, there was only 2 lockers but 4 beds and one of the lockers were broken. Each level has a small common area and kitchen with a fridge which was great. There is a small bar downstairs which was disappointingly closed on Good Friday (which was understandable) but also Easter Sunday! It might have had something to do with the NZ laws with selling drinks but still disappointing since it's a hostel! Staff were friendly and I would stay here again.

I stayed here for a cheap getaway in March 2015. Hostel’s location couldn’t be better - 25 minutes by bus from the airport. Almost everywhere else was within easy walking distance of Nomads Fat Camel Backpackers. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I had a spacious and comfortable female dorm overlooking the street. First hostel with free snacks at bar - a great opportunity to converse and compare notes and stories with other travellers. Yummy nachos and penne carbonara ;) All guests can use well-equipped kitchen (fridge, oven, microwave, electric kettle) and laundry room (extra-paid). The only cons: no wi-fi, no breakfast. Value for money - especially with BBH Card. On the whole really enjoyed my stay and would be happy to go again

Great person at the front desk, awesome guy. Really friendly, helpful and a good sense of humour. The bed was really comfortable, but the conditions were some of the worst! There was absolutely no air circulation. It is one thing to not have windows in the rooms but another to not have humane conditions with air flow. No aircon or fans, it was bad. During the night we had to make the decision to sleep with the door open, but that made us nervous as no longer were we sleeping in a secure situation, so it was a long night in the heat. Auckland is hot and muggy, but those conditions only made it worse. If it wasn't for the lack of air, I would definitely consider staying there again.

The rooms were good, the female common room area was hot/stuffy and the showers were not the cleanest I have seen. Kept on having trouble with my room key as well. However, I would like to say that the staff were very very helpful and friendly. Its in a good spot of Auckland city as well.

Noisy at night. The refrigerator smelled horrible like there was a ton of mold. Couldn't use refrigerator because it grossed me out. The bed is relatively uncomfortable. Its a small mattress on top of a hard metal bed frame. Didn't provide good wifi option either. It was ok. Relatively clean and in a decent location.
Response from the owner - in the last week
Hi Adam, Thanks for taking the time to place feedback on your stay and we are sorry the fridge was not smelling great. The fridges in all apartments are cleaned twice weekly but our housekeeping manager has shown the fridge in the apartment you stayed in a total deforst and deep clean! We wish you happy travels!

My boyfriend and I satyed here for 2 nights - we absolutely loved it!! Mitch and all the other staff were brilliant. Our room was clean as was the kitchen and communal area we shared with just a few other rooms. Good showers, great bar, amazing location. The building is a little old, but the price is brilliant. Definitely reccomend.
