While the Station Backpackers is a fascinating building which had an interesting history when it was the Station Hotel, its current condition is far from what it would have been like in its heyday. Our room was small yet manageable, very clean, linen very clean and fresh and our stay was comfortable, yet the whole building is very old and tired. The shared kitchen had very basic cooking facilities and barely any equipment to cook a satisfactory meal so having own provisions is recommended if self catering. The hotel is conveniently close to Auckland Strand railway station, rental cars and supermarket which is handy for travel and food requirements. It's also close to the wharf areas and Auckland city centre.

Got a triple ensuite, entered the room to one bed unmade and looking like it had been slept in and rubbish in the room (empty water bottles etc). Shower was freezing cold at 4.30pm (thankfully it was warm in the morning). Desk staff friendly, location brilliant for concerts, but the cold shower and unserviced room left much to be desired.

The Station Backpackers is a great place to stay ,especially when youre attending a concert at Spark Arena (just a few minutes walk away) I had no problems with the room, the staff or the facilities available and I would definitely stay there again :)

Very close to Spark Arena, bed was comfy. However, it was quite noisy and the ensuite smelled when we arrived. The shower ceiling was dirty and the water pressure was very high.
