Refurbished YHA Auckland City Re-Opens
By YHA New Zealand
Auckland: YHA New Zealand has re-opened the completely refurbished YHA Auckland City hostel. The hostel, located in central Auckland, has been closed since May for a $3m refurbishment that sets a new standard for backpacker accommodation in Auckland.
“This investment reflects YHA’s commitment to quality generally, but also the importance of Auckland to our nation-wide network. It is where international guests arriving into New Zealand get their first experience of YHA, and that experience influences their future accommodation choices as they travel through the country” says Mark Wells, Chief Executive of YHA.
The refurbished hostel includes a significant increase in ensuite rooms. “Providing ensuited accommodation is increasingly an expectation of many of our guests, both international and domestic. Having said that, there is still high demand for multi-share accommodation, so our room mix better meets the different needs of our guests” says Mr Wells.
YHA Auckland City, which has 144 beds, re-opened on 24 October, and bookings are already strong. “Both of our Auckland hostels enjoy very high occupancy, and the coming summer is no exception. We are sure that guests at YHA Auckland City will appreciate the hostel upgrade”.
