I stayed in Qsb over a number of months as a long term guest and had a great time there. I met some amazing people there, both the staff and fellow travellers. Staff are friendly and helpful and have a good knowledge of New Zealand and helped me to book my trip around New Zealand with extra hints and tips for along the way.
The hostel has pretty good wifi, good enough for streaming and uploading most of the times and its free which is a huge bonus in Auckland CBD.
There's all the extras a backpacker might need if your there for a weekend or long term- tv, DVD's, laundry facilities, good kitchens, book exchange, free baggage storage till 11pm and a bar onsite.
The location is in fort street where a lot there is a lot of bars and restaurants. Yes it can be a little noisy at times on the weekends but there are ear plugs available at reception. The hostel is within 5 minutes walking distance of the ferry, train and bus terminal so it's ideal for using as a base for navigating Auckland and its right across from the airport express stop which reception also sells tickets for. I've already booked back in for my return to Auckland and wouldn't hesitate in recommending this place to anyone. Thx Gloria, Will and Norm for a great stay!More
