Stayed here for over a month whilst working in Auckland. Very nice area, quiet and not too far from the CBD - 20-30 minutes walk. Very nice staff, clean place, plenty of toilets and shower facilities, only negative is a very very small kitchen! Can be a nightmare! But otherwise this is a great place to stay if you don't...

Away from the city center. Come here if you wanna relax. Quite small and old, but fairly clean. Many long term guests won't be willing to meet new people, which can be a good thing if you don't want to be bothered.

Came to Lantana Lodge after a really bad experience in another hostel, and was overwhelmed by the place! The bedroom was roomy, very clean, with a big bed, a sofa, a balcony (!!) and a mini fridge. Staff was kind and helpful, cleaned the place every single day. It's located in a quiet street, just a few steps from two... More

I stayed in Lantana Lodge for 3 nights. The hostel is small and cosy. The kitchen is small, too, but it was always possible to come to an arrangement with the other guests and it was a good possibility to talk to other people ;) Free Wi-Fi in all rooms! The location is really quiet but although it is possible... More

Before coming to NZ I looked up several lodges and was told to go to Lantana lodge if in Auckland and totally ignore some of the negative comments below. I truly recommend Lantana Lodge as the staff and manager are friendly and very helpful with travel tips and sightseeing things to do while in Auckland. Its centrally located surrounded by... More

Have had two good stays there and would definitely return. Kitchen gets busy at dinnertime, not surprisingly, but there's room for everyone. Baths are clean and functional. My room (4-bed share) was clean; the room has bunk beds but the two beds I had on my two visits were comfortable. The location is quiet but Parnell St and buses etc.... More

Service is average- trying to find the receptionist can be a bit tricky as she isn't in the office very often. There is however, a phone next to the office door so you can get in contact with the manager. The beds are very comfy and clean. However there could be a bit more effort onto cleaning the rooms. They... More

I do not know where to start! We arrived to a voice from behind a locked door 'I'm on my lunch break, just go in...!' So we did, unfortunately. There was a no shoes inside rule, which we ignored because the carpet was soaking wet and filthy dirty. The room was uninhabitable, no other way to describe it. Simply disgusting!... More

I do not like writing negative reviews - but this is a necessity to warn people NOT to stay at this backpackers. I have just returned home from a weekend at Latana Lodge and it was an experience I do not ever wish to repeat. I have stayed in a number of backpackers across the country and never before have...
