I had initially booked for 4 nights but extended for another 2 nights as I enjoyed my stay in YHA Auckland International. The location is strategic. There's a locker for each person in the room and the kitchen was big and spacious, relatively clean and fully equipped. It was also a great place to meet people from different countries. Room for improvement would be to empty the bin in the toilets as tissues were seen lying everywhere especially in the morning. Overall, it was a good stay.
