This is a nice cozy little hostel outside Auckland city centre (about a 20 minutes walk from Queens street) They clean the hostel everyday, and check the refrigerators everyday, so there isn't any bad food! The manager (Sonaa) is really sweet, and we can always tell if there is something we are unhappy about, and she'll try to fix it....

This place is perfect if you: - Enjoy a friendly owner/manager - Don't mistake incense for the smell of pee - Don't mind to sleep in a bedroom where you won't need UV-light to spot the bodily fluids left by other guests on the bedspread, floormat and walls. - Don't mind a foul and damp smell in the room that...

Freemans Lodge has a very homely environment and made our Auckland trip a memorable one. Ravi (manager) is an amazing host and very friendly. The lodge is a great value for money and is very clean and tidy. The lodge is also centrally located with free on street parking.

The staff are very friendly,the hostel is very clean cosy and peaceful, in my opinion it is the best backpackers in New Zealand with free high speed fiber wifi, the facilitys are great, there are 2 kitchens, 2 lounges, close to the city. There is a shuttle available 24/7 to the airport.

The staff is very kind, place is quite clean. The manager is very nice and helpful. Although there were some confusions with the booking they got to understand that it was not my fault and fixed the problem.

This hostel was the first in a long trip. In hindsight not the best place I've stayed. The room was clean and beds comfortable, but the atmosphere wasn't particularly friendly or welcoming. Communal areas could do with a bit of a touch up. The free unlimited wifi is a bonus though.
