I strongly disagree with the reviews below due to me and my boyfriend - whom I met at the hostel, having the best time at City Travellers. A friendly-warm, clean, tidy atmosphere along with staff and friends made City Travellers feel like home. Before staying there, I had stayed at a few other hostels in Auckland CBD, but nothing compares...

Not been cleaned properly in months. The place was tatty. The bed was so soft my book (paperback) caused it to sag. Terrible sleep as a result. The bathroom was awful and there were loose wires hanging out of where old appliances are something have been ripped out. For what you get it's overpriced. And there isn't anyone at the...

A great base for our first few nights in NZ. Easy walking distance to everywhere that we wanted to go in Auckland, and it was nice to have our own kitchen and bathroom. Price was very reasonable for being so central, although the bathroom was a little worn out it was all clean and very good value for money.

Ranz has the driest sense of humour ever (typical kiwi) and is very helpful. Ahmed is also the sweetest guy ever. I love how he calls the ladies maam. The hostel is chilled out and there are a lot of long term guests which is good when it comes to making lifetime friends.

Stayed here for two nights recently and fortunately we were only there to sleep as we were in town for a wedding and to see family. Our first impression was a ten-minute wait at reception (along with seven other people trying to either check in, check out, or pick up stored luggage) at 3pm, when reception was meant to be...
