We only stayed here for one night and got in after reception closed. We were promised a room together for the 4 of us and they divided us up between 2 rooms (1-4 person, 1-2 person) with other travelers. When we called to sort out the problem, the gentleman was not helpful. However, it worked out and they refunded half... More

Location is spot on - just off Ponsonby Road, with its great collection of shops, cafés and bars. Parking was better than expected - Verandahs had about 7 or 8 spaces which were free and had no time limit. There is also free, 2 hr parking on the street. The staff were friendly and helpful. The wifi was quite costly,... More

My experience at Verandahs was great! The staff was friendly and helpful, the facilities were clean, and the rooms were cozy. The location is outstanding--I wasn't aware before arriving in Auckland just how convenient the Ponsonby locale really is! Verandahs was a short walk for dozens of restaurants, cafes, and bars, as well as a nice walk from the harbor... More

This hostel is really the closest thing to a 'Home away from home' that you'll find in New Zealand. Campbell and his staff work very hard to maintain the highest standards here. I stayed here a number of times between September 2013 and May 2014 while I was working and traveling in New Zealand. Rooms are comfortable and very clean.... More

I have already been there 3 times. Around 30 nights in total. Well located, close to ponsonby street, but very quiet and peacefull. Jouxting a big park with huge trees. The manager, Campbell and his staff are always friendly and helpfull... Defenitly the best backpaker in Auckland.

Stayed in a single room (albeit with two beds) for one night at the end of my trip. The room was clean and spacious enough for me to spread out all of my things and repack comfortably. Didn't really sample any of the common areas besides the shared bathroom down the hall, which was decent enough but fairly institutional. This... More

I stayed in a single room at Verandahs Backpackers Lodge for two nights when i arrived in Auckland and enjoyed the stay there. The single room isn`t anything special, but it`s clean and got enough room to store and unpack you`re luggage. The Hostel is set in a nice location not to far from the city centre (about 10-15 mins... More

Nice garden and balconies with beautiful views of the city center and sky tower. Rooms are cozy and I liked the yellow painted wall in my room. Kitchen could be a little more colorful, its quite "bold". Lounge is ok, what I liked most about it were the guitar and the piano. Hostel is clean. The sunday I stayed at... More
