This was my SECOND time staying at the YHA Auckland City because I had a good stay my first time, five years ago. Staff (Chris, Aaron, Aya, and everyone else who's name I cant remember!) is still just as friendly and helpful and lovely to talk to. There's an elevator, HUGE kitchen and lots of refrigerator space.
The number of people in each room is kept really small, which is nice compared to having a 6-8 person dorm room, they are 2-3 person rooms. Some of the showers have better water pressure than others, but in general the bathrooms/showers are really clean and not very busy (there are some on every floor).
The location is a bit further than the "central" area, but still really walkable and easy to get to K Rd., Mt. Eden area, and Ponsonby by bus/walking. It is also a fairly quick walk to Auckland Domain and has a good number of cafes, etc. around.
For the amount of money, compared to other backpackers in the "central" area, you can pay $33 for a 4-person dorm, or $33 for a 2-person room. Your choice!
And YHA members get wifi for free during your entire stay! Which was pretty good most of the time I was there. It cut out once, but came back after about an hour.
