Had a perfectly fine stay at Verandahs having found it rated as the number 1 hostel in Auckland on tripadvisor. Stayed in a private double room. Everything was great and staff were friendly at check in.

This hostel is not central but the access to CBD is by public transport but you could go by foot (1,5 km to Sky Tower). Near there, in Ponsonby Road, are a commercial area with supermarket (Rose road) and around there many other shops. The...More
It's a very clean and nice place to stay with a very affordable price. Though it's not actually right in the middle of Auckland city Centre but close enough if you don't mind a 30minutes walk. We stayed at their 4 single beds bedroom with...More
Clean room, clean kitchen, nice places to sit down, nice garden. The hostel is very quiet and not a place for partys which suited us. You need around 15 minutes to get to the city center on foot. There are also busses you can take....More

I usually get the shuttle bus or taxi but there is also a bus which takes you to K Road, a short walk from the Backpackers, about $14 or$18 if I recall correctly. Suggest you contact Verandahs and ask them of your options, I have just come from Auckland a few hours ago and paid $35 for a taxi, organised by backpackers. Independently would have been a hell of a lot more, vicinity of $60. Shuttle is about $38.
As always love the quietness and great location of this hostel, the inner bus route (green) which is a couple of minutes walk easy to get round on.
Enjoy your holiday.
