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!

Great location on Fort st. right in the middle of town and near everything. Free Wifi that is rare for Auckland, staff are friendly and helpful mostly kiwi so have good knowledge. It has a pool table, two kitchens, TV and playstation. Great place to stay for the weekend or long term and by far the cheapest place in Auckland.

I was there for 3 days 2 nights in a single bedroom. The room was ok but there is no table in the room so i have to leave all my stuffs on the floor. I like the location of the backpackers and i think this is the only backpackers that provide free unlimited wifi in Auckland.

Good points:
The location but it's not the only one in this area
Free wifi even if it's VERY slow and don't work all time
Bad points:
Irrespectuous and noisy people
Noisy street ( bass music all night)
Rooms, bathrooms, kitchen horribly dirty
Fridge in the kitchen is wet ( all my stuff was wet after one night )
