Auckland Central Backpackers: "Auckland's Noisiest Hostel" New Zealand Hotel Tip by GoogleGuru

New Zealand Hotels: 302 reviews and 273 photos

My first night in New Zealand after a long flight from North American was spent at Auckland Central Backpackers (note that when getting a lift to the hostel, taxi drivers seem to known "ACB" moreso than the full name).

The hostel appears to be an old school, with lots of rooms of varying sizes. There is a bar on the roof of the building (both open-air and enclosed parts) where one can relax and unwind. There is usually an event in the bar most nights (such as Jell-O wrestling competitions against other hostels) and it's a good place to meet other travellers.

Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Price: less than US$20
