A friend and I stayed at the Base Auckland hostel for three nights. We had our own twin ensuite. The room was pretty nice for a hostel. Beds were a little older, but ok. It was nice to have our own mini fridge. Unfortunately, we did have theft issues. Someone stole my friend's iPhone, and also my entire carry on suitcase. What a terrible way to end our vacation. The staff did apologize and ultimately refunded our stay; however, the contents of my suitcase were worth much more monetarily and sentimentally. The hostel did have flyers that a thief was operating in the hostel, and to secure your valuables, but I would never have imagined them stealing an entire suitcase. So disappointing. Other than that major issue, accommodation was ok. Elevators are old and didn't always work right. One girl got stuck while we were there.

A two night stay and pleasant enough. Some noise but it was over Friday and Saturday nights. Helpful when I asked for towels which I had not realised were not included.

We were very dissappointed on the cleanliness. We were in a double unit. Bed cover was dirty, shower wasn't clean, floor wasn't clean, otherwise it was a good place to stay - a little noisy but it was after all Friday night.

We booked this hotel on the basis that backpacker accommodation in NZ had been good & very reasonable.However this hotel is right next to a Night Club which we understand is owned by the same person. We were kept awake until nearly 4 in the morning by a combination of loud music which did not stop until approx 2.30 and then subsequently by very noisy revellers. This may be acceptable to the young backpackers who stay at the hotel but people booking this accommodation should be made aware of the situation

Base Auckland Central Backpackers is a well organised quality backpackers accomodation. I found the staff to be exceptionally helpful beyond the call of duty. The premises is clean, very tidy, and spacious. The cleaning ladies and house keeping staff were especially friendly and I think their standard of workmanship is outstanding. The showers were difficult to operate and quite small, and the heating was a bit too warm for me, especially on the third floor office area. I got very little sleep because of the airing unit and the refrigerator turning off and on during the night, and the street noise down below. However, overall, I think this is an upmarket establishment for a backpackers, and one which I would not hesitate to stay at again. Its very central location suited my needs perfectly as well.

We were amazed at our recent stay at ACB, it was outstanding right down to The Barstaff and Bouncers, the fact that we got free alcohol on the first night and then free pizza on the second it enticed us to spend more there, but it was fantastic def recommend to all our friends. We are hostel professionals also having done a 5 year OE and had complete nightmare experiences this def rates in the top 5! Well done! everyone there was great!!!! Pitty bout the balcony bar being closed but was crappy weather... wouldnt a been much fun! Tahnks to all the staff there for thie efforts made our stay unforgettable!!!!

In the area of cleanliness, I only gave average as the outside cover on the bed was stained. Rest of room and hotel appeared clean. Most staff were very helpful and friendly.

My room was very noisy from the traffic below, I think shelves or hooks in the showers would be great. But great location, nice people.

The bed linen was very dirty. When I complained I was told that I was not the first to have this problem. I was offerred no discount or any tangible thing that may have eased the pain of trying to cope for 2 nights in dirty linen. Very dirty linen. I went to shop in queen St. and purchased 2 new pillow slips to assist with tolerating the burden. The facilities were very average.

We found Auckland Central Backpackers to be a money making backpackers. Not only is it very expensive, but you have to pay for the internet through a company called Global Gossip who are an expensive telecommunications company. Staff were sometimes nice, but often indifferent and not overly helpful (those working during the day). Cheack in is terrible, long queues and you can't check in before 1pm. Our room was very bad also, there was no window and very small. Showers were not cleaned all the time also. Kitchen is the best facility they have. We wouldn't use this hostel again even though it has a great location.

Great inner-city location, couldn't fault the price, and so easy to come and go, but... *They wouldn't let me check in 10 minutes early *Communal bathrooms were a bit run-down and smelly *My room was windowless
