Everything about the Auckland International YHA was 100% ... except for the temperature of the Room. There is No Air Conditioning, No Fan, and the windows can only be opened about 2 inches. The temperature at night was stifling hot and humid to the point of I could not sleep. I would not stay there again because of this. Apalling. It was not just me, Many people had the doors to their rooms propped ipen to get some ventilation.

I like the kitchen much, the facilities are all well equipped. The bathroom in the 2-bed room is too bad as the shower curtain cannot stop the water to splite out, that wet the floor and no drainage for water out.

Auckland International,

Asked about public transportation and desk staff had to ask each other or management. Given wrong directions one day. Really frustrating....if anything to improve on is to send staff on public transportation adventures to prominent tourist sites. Many use PT but only to go from home to work and back. I really liked that the place was spotless. I appreciated the cleaning staff for the rooms and the kitchen. Some cookware and cooking utensils need a good soaking - or a round in a dishwasher.

Hi Christine, thanks for taking the time to leave us your feedback. Sorry there was confusion with the information you were given, we have told staff that if they are not sure of anything to check with a colleague rather than not giving an answer, on this occasion this did not work and I will discuss your comments with the team.
