My boyfriend and I were late with booking, so we were lucky to get a room at all, and we didn't mind the fact that we had a bunk bed. This however is no excuse for the very bad matress one of us had to sleep on; the springs were literally sticking out!
Also there were very little bathroom facilities for the amount of guests and the showerdrain wasn't working so the dirty water almost flooded the place!
The worst thing however was that we had discussed leaving our stuff in the hostel for the day. When we came to pick it up and had some lunch (our own food!), we were warned that we had to pay extra if we were staying longer and that they were always strict about this in NZ, which is not true since we had 8 weeks of travelling behind us and never had any issues with this!!!!
There are definately much nicer and friendlier hostels in Auckland (the bamber house for example)!
