That was kind of the big question when I happily checked out of Kiwi International Hotel in Auckland. What happened in my room my last night at this hostel is shown in the photo. As my room didn’t have a en-suite I had to step out to use the restroom,
and when I got back someone had rearranged the hangers… Any theories? A friend claims it was the wind 😀 Apart from this incident there is not much to report from this place. Well, besides the on-site restaurant serves good food! When checking in you are met by a less than cheerful front desk receptionist. What is it with budget hotel staff in New Zealand? – Rotorua was great, Wellington and Auckland were bad… Could it be the dreary, dark lobby area? On my way to the designated room I passed through quiet hallways, kinda spooky, in retrospect giving me the chills 🙂 Old hotel, small room with in-room sink, and shared shower and toilet facilities. Located far up Queen Street, it’s quite the walk from the busier part of town, and, as I experienced while waiting for the airport express bus, which stops across the street, not the best area at 5-6 in the morning.
