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...

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
