Really enjoyed my stay....I found the hostel much quieter than the YHA International where I stayed last year.

Für die Gäste die um 10.00 auschecken gibt es nur Hindernisse. es gibt einen locker aber wenn man den nur einmal aufmachen muß weil man was vergessen hat muß man wieder 5 dollar zahlen. ich hab die 5 dollar zurückbekommen von dem besten und nettesten mitarbeiter. man könnte ja vorher schon dem gast sagen, daß man den locker nicht aufschließen soll. ansonsten waren die unterbringungsmöglichkeiten für fahrräder nicht vorhanden. man mußte ins untere hostel jeden tag gehen. umständlich.

Thank you for your feedback. With regards to luggage storage, we have to balance the need to store bags for customers arriving at the hostel before their room is ready at 2pm, with the very few people wanting to store bags when they check out, for this we have pay lockers available. As with the luggage storage we do not have the space to store bicycles at YHA Auckland City and we do not show this facility on our Hi Hostel listing, for those customers with bicycles these can be stored, for free, in our bicycle store at YHA Auckland International.

Pode-se dizer que gostei de tudo. O único senão tem a ver com o ruído que se fazia sentir no nosso quarto - o 101 - e que era devido à ventilação/exaustão forçada. Melhorado este aspecto, atingiriam a perfeição para um alojamento deste segmento.

Thanks for your feedback Jose, I am sorry that we did not meet your expectation with your room during your stay. We will see what can be done with regards to the fans on the roof. Steve
