“Great improvement!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013

The apartments have been newly renovated for students. New paint etc.
Great views, TV, furniture and bathroom included
Secure facilities
The downside is that there are no cooktops and it is quite pricey

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

Stayed with a group of friends spread over two rooms, booked based on website and description which is obviously not of this place! Both rooms were disgusting; heavily stained floors, walls, couches and beds. There was mould growing throughout the apartments and repair jobs that appear to have been done by toddlers. There were no cups, plates or cutlery although there was one jug that didn't work. Both rooms were infested with additional guests which we were unaware of until the morning when we woke covered in bites. Went to complain in the morning but were inline behind two other groups. Management didnt really know what they were doing and mid conversation suddenly forgot how to speak english. This place should be shut down!

While located very close to the heart of Auckland the rooms and atmosphere is horrible - the place is really the pits. No way can it be called a Apartment or Hotel maybe a back packers.

We stayed in a three bedroom hovel with a single two seater couch that was heavily stained, damaged walls poorly repaired, microwave and jug that didn't work, no hand towels, rock hard beds and bedrooms that offered privacy but nothing else....no coat hangers, 1 pillow, no chair stained carpet and poorly repaired wall damage
Do not waste your money by staying here

In short,
things I liked:
- great location - in between AUT and Uni of Auckland; 3 min walk to CBD (Crn Wellesley and Queen St)
- doors that can be opened by swipe cards

things I don't like:
- it is not a hotel - somewhere in between a youth hostel, student accommodation and serviced apartment (sorry, I am referring to the bad things about these types of accom); I mean 1) you don't have your own kitchen; you have a crappy microwave in your room which doesn't really do the job; not all the stoves were working at the common kitchen 2) there is only a very small common room with a plasma TV (which is a plus) but there is no culture - unlike other youth hostels
- I stayed for four nights and I found quite some unwelcomed insects
- my room was quite small
- though the receptionist was nice and helpful, their opening hours are limited to 10-6pm.

Conclusion: if you still choose to stay because of the great location and the relatively cheaper rates than the other apartments around, you should ensure your room allocated is clean enough before you pay.
