We are members of YHA Australia and have been for many years. Of all the yha's we have stayed in this clearly and unambiguously takes first prize for being the WORST YHA we have ever stayed in. We stayed for 3 nights in February 2014 in a private twin room on the first floor. The bedding, sheets, pillows the worst we have ever experienced. The unrelentless stifling heat in our room and in the dining areas was appalling and unbearable. Through the night had to walk out onto the street for some fresh air. The lift was out of order for two days and had to lug bags up steep stairs. The shared showers were not cleaned for days and found a tampon on the floor which remained for two days together with sundry other empty packaging items. The whole place needs a revamp. It may have been ok in the 1960s but is very poor by modern YHA STANDARDS TODAY. The staff were friendly and helpful but appeared run off their feet. This is in a great central location that offers free off street parking which was one major reason we chose to stay BUT NEVER AGAIN. Do yourself a favour and avoid at all costs. THIS IS A REAL SHAME THERE ARE MANY WONDERFUL YHA's IN NEW ZEALAND BUT THIS IS CERTAINLY NOT ONE OF THEM AND AUCKLAND HAS SOME WONDERFUL SIGHTS TO SEE SUCH AS A HARBOUR CRUISE, TRIP TO DEVONPORT AND GREAT FREE NAVAL MUSEUM, EDAN PARK TOUR.
