Jucy Snooze2.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Well-placed in a quiet square very close to the bottom of Queen Street. Staff friendly and helpful. Building is functional and smart-hostel style. No lifts so some stairs to carry luggage up. Rooms basic and a bit weary but pretty clean, beds were comfortable, and the place was quiet at night. Points off for a) hairs found on the duvet and spare pillow b) the broken window latch which meant noise and cold air could not be shut out! This looked like it had been broken a while. This is a very economical but safe, convenient and clean place to stay in Auckland CBD, and I would stay here again.
nice hotel in the city if you like backpacking or normal rooms with shower/heater/tv etc,no restaurant but 5 mins walk into town centre and close to all you will need and also the pier is close by-walking uphill to the hotel is good exercise and parkland is close also,5 min walk to skybus to airport was great as well-handy to everything.
I knew not to expect much from this no frills place BUT, I overestimated even with that. I realize that staying in a big city is expensive, and this was cheap, but it was really not worth it and I have stayed in a wide range of places in my life. Definitely more of a young persons/back packers kind of place with some private rooms. To be fair, check in was fine and the staff is very nice and helpful. It reminds me of an old creaky noisy dorm and the rooms are like cells. A bed, a little table and a small rack with 4 hangers. No mirror, chair, radio, clock, or bedside lamp. Since I never turn the tv on, It didn't bother me that there wasn't one here. The shared toilets down the hall are fine with me except that the sinks are with the showers, so if they are being used, there is no where to wash your hands. I heard murmurs of "no hot water" but it was ok when I took a shower though to be on the safe side, I was very quick. No towels are in the room but you can get one with a $5 refundable deposit. The windows do open but very noisily. Lots of hall noise as well without any thing to dampen it. Bring your earplugs. Box spring and mattress on the floor was not too uncomfortable though not great. The location is good for walking the town, though a little hard to find. Really convenient to Univ. of Auckland. The rooms are on several floors with no lifts. It did seem clean and secure. 30 minutes free wifi per 24 hour period, only in the lounge. There is a tv and kitchen facilities to share there. It was a learning experience for sure. Next time it will be airbnb for me, even if they are a little farther out.
The location is great, close to pubs,restaurants, Queen street, shopping, buses, train station and the ferry terminal. Place was clean and staff very friendly. Room is basic but bed comfortable and the place was warm. Only problem is the acoustics as this is an older style building. Sound travels and the old floor doors squeak and room door locks bang shut from guests use can be heard on the third floor and from the floors below including guests in the lounge & kitchen; chopping and cooking downstairs. At night such noise can concern some guests. The facilities however were fine.
Great location very central with car park which was a bonus. Comfy beds great shower & toilet Super for friends visit to Auckland definitely recommend Wifi in communal areas & 24 hour reception who were friendly & helpful
We booked and ensuite room after staying in the newly built Christchurch location in Jan. It is not as new or purpose built as the Christchurch hotel/hostel but for $85 for a large ensuite room with very helpful staff who go above and beyond I can't complain. It's very clean and warm.
Needed somewhere to stay last minute, just for the night, close to downtown Queen Street - and this was the best option. Good price point and I was still able to get a private room with my own bathroom. Super close to where I needed to go, easy to find from public transport. Nice and quiet, felt safe and secure. Was able to store my bag during the day while I was at a meeting - staff super helpful and friendly. Perfect spot for a quick stay for a solo traveller - would recommend!
Booked a Quad share family room for 2 nights. Room was very spacious with a large window (that opened) for 2 nights in mid-May. Reason for visit was a concert at nearby Spark (Vector) Arena which the hotel is perfectly located for as it's only a 5 minute walk. Bathroom was very modern and clean. Beds were comfortable. It was a 5 minute walk to Queen Street and/or the waterfront. Staff on reception were friendly, helpful and efficient. Would highly recommend for a family that was looking for a base for the weekend to explore Auckland. Based on the price paid, it's worth 5 stars. We didn't use any of the shared kitchen facilities.
We got upgraded from a double to a 3 bedded room on the top floor. Friendly & accommodating staff. Very spacious & clean. Bathrooms were clean (a huge plus for me). Well equipped kitchen. A few streets away from the hustle & bustle of Queen St which was greatly appreciated. Wasn't impressed by the accumulated black rubbish bags placed by the closed off exit doors next to the Lounge Area - the stench was horrendous! We could smell it from the reception desk eek! The top floor balcony by the bathroom was used by smokers despite the No Smoking sticker on the door. Quite annoyed by the tobacco smell lingering into the hallway. All in all, would definitely stay over again when in Auckland.
Service was poor. Common areas run down and full of dirty pots. WiFi advertised as free. It isnt . airport shuttle advertised they don't do it. Rooms and bathrooms very low standard of clenliness . a far cry from the other Jucy in Christchurch.
