Lantana Lodge is small and nice hostel in Parnell.... it's about 30 walking minutes from the city centre away but you can take the bus from Parnell Road. It's located in a residential area and there are 2 parcs nearby and just at the end of the road you'll find every weekend the famous french market. The Rooms are okay,... More

We stayed a little family in a Room. The hostel is well situated i the parnell area. But we were a bit disapointed about the Daily manager seemed to know nothing about the area (where to rent bikes, cars etc). The kitchen could really need a good cleaning, a was easily crowded.

Room tidy. Kitchen festy. Didn't want to cook there. Shelves & pantry overcrowded with food, random dishes. Bathrooms okay. Small no ventilation. Staff not that helpful but was a backpacker himself. A bunch of backpackers left one day and left their food on communal coffee table - food still there 24 hours later. Outside sunny verandah filled with empty ashtrays.... More

The lantana lodge is ok! But just ok! You can probably def find somewhere better! Free wifi is good however! But it's pretty much just basic and small! Staff aren't v useful and the location isn't the best! Keep looking guys! X

The expectations was maybe raised a bit too high by the good reviews here but we found the place a bit on the bad side to be honest. The kitchen is too small and there is not too much room to sit down and relax. The wifi, though free and unlimited, didn't work very well, it was very slow. To... More

Fantastic hostel! Very clean, plenty of bathrooms, great FREE wifi (always a plus!) friendly staff, would definitely stay here again! Parnell is a lovely little suburb of Auckland if you want to escape from the busy city, just a short 2 dollar bus ride away :)

Our first backpackers experience in our fifties! Loved it, comfortable bed, lovely location and very friendly guests and staff. Beautiful old house, well stocked kitchen and clean amenities. All linen provided. We will back pack again. Appreciated all the helpful guests, terrific to chat with such friendly guests.

Clean and comfortable place to stay in Parnell & close enough to city centre. We explored around Parnell and Newmarket and took the Link buses to and from further Auckland sites. The bus stop is conveniently located at the top of the street. Facilities were sufficient and the shower had hot water and powerful water pressure. Staff was friendly, rooms... More

I stayed here a couple of weeks and I thought it was fantastic. It's clean, the staff are friendly and you can't go wrong with free wifi. It is a quiet place and a bit of a walk from the city. But everything else this hostel has totally makes up for it.

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...
