It's actually not a hostel at all.. It's a happy home for travellers with the nicest staff and people around. Come here and experience the well equipped kitchen, clean bathrooms and a lovely atmosphere! This place is sweeeeet!:-)

Awesome location in the heart of vibrant Ponsonby. Bus stop right in front of the door. Supermarket in 10 mins walking distance and only half an hour into the city centre. Perfect to explore Auckland! The free and unlimited Wifi is really fast. Clean and tidy toilets and showers. Nice areas to hang out. Awesome manager! Definitely recommendable!

When I arrived into Auckland, after my friend's wedding, I was looking for a place to stay near Ponsonby St. I checked into Uenuku Lodge, but I wasn't sure how long I was going to stay. Long story short, I made some new friends, toured around the city, and I ended up extending my stay for 4 nights. Uenuku was...

Did the title get your attention? Great, because this hostel is actually terribly GREAT! One of the strongest points about this hostel is it's placement, being in the center of Ponsonby road, and as such near the center of Auckland, nothing is further than a walk away. This comes hand in hand with a great view of the sky tower....

We arrived from the airport to stay here for one night. The location was in a really good spot but that was one of the the only redeeming qualities of the hostel. The sheets on the bed looked like they had been used countless times and just folded up again and again for reuse (which considering the price you pay...
