Verandahs great location

Pros: Comfortable and convenient. Warm.
Verandahs suited my stay and the location is very convenient. Inside Verandahs is warm and comfortable and relaxed. The backyard is great for chilling out. Parking is a challenge. Two supermarkets nearby. Restaurants, bars. Queen St not far away.

Simple clean hostel

Pros: Central location.
Cons: Heating in rooms. Warmer bedding during winter months. Don't advertise there being parking on site - I counted two spaces, so perhaps say 'limited'?
Location: Walk to Ponsonby Road for meals.
Arrived after check in closed (7pm) and key had been left out for me which was great. Large room. Simple, clean and functional bathroom. Just needed a bed for the night so didn't use the kitchen or lounge. Left early morning and straightforward key return box by front door. Great location for those just needing a 'bed for the night' but dress warmly if staying in winter as there as it's an old villa so no central heating. Room heater small and turns off after 90mins so you'll wake up in the night to turn it back on. And being so old the walls are not soundproof so earplugs if you're a light sleeper, or like to go to bed before midnight. And 'on street' parking can be very limited, so be prepared to park and walk to hostel.

Great location, lovely old building, good security

Pros: location
Cons: nil
Location: Just off Ponsomby and K'rd.
lovely reception and a clean quiet room. Seriously how much do you want me to write? The place rocks, youd be a mug to stay elsewhere. If you trangender partying K'rd is the place to go... Enough Mr Wotif?
