Dorms start at $22, plus a $10 key deposit. We got an ensuite room, and the room was good, with great air-conditioning and even a TV--not bad for NZ$85 a night. The shower was really powerful, the only annoying thing being that you had to keep pressing a button every 10 seconds to keep the water going; otherwise, it would just stop. We found this hostel hard to fault, especially since it was really quiet, considering the location and amount of people staying here. This really was a plus. We finally had a good night's sleep.
They also have a good and busy bar, and when you check in, they give you offers such as a free beer at the busy Globe bar across the road.

The hostel has great facilities including kitchens, a travel centre, laundry, and internet. I had a double room (58 nzd for two) with air-conditioning.
Below the hostel is the Globe Bar, a favorite among students and backpackers - their occasional foam parties are great fun!
I enjoyed staying there although I have met travelers who felt that the size and sterile nature of the hostel resulted in it being a little impersonal.

There are tv lounges, kitchens, a cafe, great roof-top bar and other excellent facilities. It''s not the newest place I''ve been to, but the beds are comfy and the staff friendly. The bar is also a good place to meet people if you are travelling alone.
ACB also boasts one of the best travel centres in Auckland, so you can sit back, relax, and plan what to do with the rest of your time in NZ.
