Ponsonby Backpackers

The best thing about Ponsonby Backpackers is definitely the staffs. At the moment we got there we had no idea around there but they kindly told us everything about the place and gave us a map with a big smile. As well as the staffs, those who stayed there were warm and nice.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The best thing about Ponsonby Backpackers is definitely the staffs. At the moment we got there we had no idea around there but they kindly told us everything about the place and gave us a map with a big smile. As well as the staffs, those who stayed there were warm and nice. We had a long chat at a dinner room with people from all over the world. What a experience! We would be very happy to stay PB again when in AKL.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The kitchen was quite clean with ample room for food storage.

The bunk beds were not so good since they rock easily; especially if you have a person who kicks in their sleep beneath you!

The washing machine only used cold water?! A little inconvenient if you do not buy cold water washing powder. The Italians were not happy! and neither was I for that matter.

Also, there is a little problem with seating in the TV room since I had to stand on occasion and lean against the sofa.

This hostel is ok for a few days whilst you get something better fixed. All in all, it's a non-returner.
