This was a decent place - no idea of how cost effective as my first stay in NZ. Close enough to the city centre, and decent bars and shops very close by. Wifi worked well and had good communal space, laundry facilities and decent well equipped kitchen. Rooms were a little grubby, and could do with deep cleaning but aside...

The staff at Uenuku are really friendly and welcoming people. Any advice or guidance you require regarding the city of Auckland and they are more than happy to help! Supermarkets, retail shops, bars and restaurants can all be found on Ponsonby Rd, which is a great location. There's a bus stop literally 10 feet away from the hostel which costs...

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....
