This place was a really nice hostel! So clean, private room for 4 had an ensuite, perfect amount of space, quiet location but only a 10 minute walk to the main part of downtown. Only downside was having to pay for wifi. Would highly recommend it and stay again!

I don't find myself to be too particular but after staying in 4 places in NZ with free wifi, a/c in 3 of the 4, and awesome service, I was disappointed with my stay here. Having to pay for wifi when almost every restaurant and hotel offers it was disappointing. It was also hot, but having the windows open meant...

Our room was small but clean, with a comfortable bed. Amenities available to cook your own food downstairs were huge & clean. As we were so close to the city centre (less than 10 mins to Sky City) walking around and finding eating establishments was also an option. The room was quite stuffy and warm and you couldn't open the...

Great location for getting around Auckland and visiting the sights, very central. The room itself was a little small and basic with no AC, but the service from City Lodge's friendly employees was impeccable. I would stay here again!

This was our first stop off in New Zealand after a long flight from the UK. The location of the hostel is great about 10 min into the main city centre. The hostel is very clean and staff friendly and helpful. Room size was basic and semi comfortable. There was a lot of noise from people outside as there seem...

City Lodge was very central and a quick walk to the main Auckland city area. The room was exactly what we needed for a 1 night stay. It is quite noisy at night time until the early hours of the morning but that is expected as it is very central. The staff were also very helpful. The bed was on...

The rooms were quite small for our group of three and the beds were incredibly uncomfortable--and loud! You could hear everyone moving about because we couldn't sleep. However, the place was clean, had parking available, and was in a good location!

Nice clean rooms, easy access to the city and friendly staff. Will definitely stay there again, they even let us use their facilities long after we checked out by looking after our bags etc. One slight criticism, you could do with updating some of your mattresses, I could feel some of the springs in my back, and that's not great...

The staff here is exceptional! Very warm, inviting and very accommodating. They had it all decorated for the Holidays The rooms were clean and adequate size for my needs. The place is in walking distance to the waterfront. It is in the city, and with me being a lite sleeper and wanting the windows open for circulating air, I needed...
