Wouldn't even really like to call this a hostel, I stayed here for three nights in a private room and it was excellent. Slightly more expensive than other hostels but for the hotel prices in Auckland you can't complain. The staff are really friendly, the rooms are clean and comfy and all of the facilities are great. Hands down the...

Stayed for one night whilst attending a concert with friends in a twin room with ensuite. Service is very friendly, rooms are clean and good value for money. Easy to access when travelling from airport, and within easy walking distance of central city. Would stay here again.

Clean and comfortable, conveniently located, friendly and helpful staff, has everything one needs. They have a good deal with the YMCA gym, which is about 100m up the street, one free day and then NZ$10 / day. You can walk all over the downtown area from this location.

We stayed at City Lodge twice during a recent trip to New Zealand. The rooms were spotlessly clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is very convenient and the central business district is an easy walk as are the Ponsonby Road and Karangahape Road commercial areas. There is a nice bakery just 100M north on Vincent Street where...
