Nice bright, clean and modern hostel, well situated, with good facilities and friendly, helpful staff. Cool decor in the kitchen/ communal area. I only stayed here for one night in a small mixed room with single beds rather than bunks. The pillows were rubbish (as with most hostels) but the beds were comfortable. It was a Saturday night so there... More

Good location just off Queen Street, right in the heart of Auckland CBD. The rooms are quite nice and some of the dorms have single beds (rather than bunks). This is definitely an average to good hostel, not much to distinguish it or mark it down on. However, Auckland is rather low on decent hostels and this one is probably... More

Attic is a great hostel. It is much smaller than Base or Nomad and less of a party hostel. It is full of independent travellers who are friendly and the staff could not do more to make you welcome. While there are not lockers under the beds the addition of a room of lockers (you can bring your own lock... More

I loved staying there. So close to everything. The rooms were really nice. Beds are really uncomfortable tho. I found anyways. Clean place. Kitchen is nice and spacious. Loved sitting out on the balcony. I didn't find the staff very friendly or helpful. Expect for a girl named Rebekah ! She was hands down amazing! Helped us check in and... More

Friendly helpful staff. I like the fact there are a few bi lingual receptionists here. The kitchen is amazing, spacious and nice and clean and there is a free food box with some necessities in there. There's a few communal areas with a TV room with sky but the only down fall is the decking area which closes at 11... More

Hi! Thanks for the great review. We are happy to hear you found our staff friendly and helpful. And that you enjoyed our spacious communal areas. We do close the deck at 11pm, as we are above a hotel and need to keep the noise levels down at night. Please come see us again if you are back in Auckland.... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Attic Backpackers! Really clean and tidy hostel with spacious rooms and comfy beds! If you're all about drinking and partying however there are a lot of rules so maybe seek accommodation elsewhere but for me it was great! Met some lovely people and the staff are so friendly and helpful! Handy location -... More

hopefully you don't get one of the rooms right next to reception. if you are in 1A be prepared to hear the loud beeping of the door EVERYTIME someone enters or exits the hostel at all hours of the night. the staff were mostly from the UK, so don't expect a kiwi experience. it's a busy, impersonal hostel in a...

This is my second stay at the attic hostel. On this occasion I stayed in a six bed dorm (room 3) The room was spacious, airy and clean. I had an excellent nights sleep on the first night. However, on the second night people were talking in the common area which is directly outside this dorm. This kept some of... More

I found this hostel lacked in atmosphere and the overload of rules made it difficult to be social. The social area closes at 11pm and so does the kitchen! I also thought it was overpriced. I wouldn't stay here again!
