Very nice hostel, everyone (staff and other guests) were all friendly. The rooms were spacious and very clean. There are plenty of social areas where you can chill out. Would definitely recommend this hostel, loved the old (but very easy to use) lift!

Great little hostel in the heart of Auckland. Easy to get anywhere in Auckland as the bus and train station is just a 5-10minute walk along the road. There is a grocery shop nearby, bars on the main road outside and a Peterpans travel agent a 2 minute walk away to plan anything last minute (there is also a in... More

We stayed here for two night when we first arrived to NZ. A very modern hostel with a big kitchen and a nice outside deck for BBQs and some drinks. The room we stayed in was a 12 bed dorm full with long stayers, so a bit messy, but I cant blame the hostel for that. Overall nice atmosphere with... More

I stayed at The Attic for two weeks when I first moved to Auckland and it was the perfect place to recuperate and rest. The beds were really comfortable and the hostel was cleaned daily. The kitchen is really spacious which is convenient for lots of residents, and the 24hour lounge is a real bonus! You only get a small... More

My first experience of New Zealand was at attic backpackers. I chose this because it was a central location and cheap enough. I got what I paid for and have no complaints. The staff were friendly and the hostel was well looked after. More wifi would have been nice. Nice hostel!

Great new hostel for the Auckland scene. Far enough away from Queen St that you don't get the noise, but close enough to be central. Awesome deck / chill out area and a well equipped kitchen. Rooms are very basic, but also very clean and for the price in central Auckland you can beat it.

Pricy, but of course it is Auckland. It is a very nice and clean hostel with friendly staff. Beds and kitchen facilities are also pretty good. They also give you a bit of free wifi which is nice. The location is also pretty central. It was a good stay over, but I do not enjoy Auckland enough to wish to... More

Clean and spacious rooms, with comfy beds and proper linens. The location is great, close to the main street where the airport express bus leaves from. The elevator is a bit tricky though. Great value for money!

While Auckland itself was a little hit and miss, The Attic didn't put a foot wrong. I stayed in a 6 bed female dorm and love it - especially the doona, so soft and warm, haha! I also loved the area at reception with the beanbags and couch as it was such a nice little spot to sit down with... More
