I spent two weeks at The Attic and I'd recommend anyone to stay there. The place is clean, excellent location (near Sky Tower, harbor, Queen Street, The Civic), big kitchen, nice staff. I had a great time there and I hope to come back one day.

I stayed for two nights in a triple shared room with single beds. What I like about the hostel: - Great location - to/from airport and about the city with Sky Tower just a mere two minutes walk. - The comfortable bean bags that lay about the common area - Once I sank into one, it was hard to get...

Can’t say enough about this small hostel. It seemed more like a hotel with warm, cheerful reception staff and many nooks and crannies to hang out in. Even has a “Chill Out” room for some quiet time along with a TV room, a comfortable home away from home. On arrival I was taken on a tour of the place and... More

This place may be nice in the summer. Don't stay here in the winter. There isn't any heat. The rooms are freezing even with a blanket. I had to move to a different hostel. The temperatures were miserable.

Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. Unfortunately central heating does not exist in NZ, so this is something you will experience across the country. We do have panel heaters in our common rooms/areas which heat the spaces up nicely and we offer guests extra blankets which are usually sufficient. In fairness, the last week has been some... More

I've had friends who stayed at this hostel before and enjoyed it so i booked my boyfriend and myself here for three nights. They don't have a double room just a twin room. The hostel itself is nice, kind of eclectic as you have to take an old fashioned elevator to the reach the hostel part of the building. It's... More

I arrived here in the early morning hours due to an early arrival flight from the airport. Upon arrival I was supposed to have the key to my room ready since I had booked the room the night before but it wasn't there so I had to call someone to help me out at reception. Not really the best start... More

This really is one of the best hostels around New Zealand, probably the best in Auckland. It's the simple things like being shown not only to your room but also around the hostel so you know where to find the bathroom, the kitchen, the laundry and the TV lounge. The staff on the desk were very friendly and helpful too,... More

We were impressed with how clean and well organized the kitchen and bathrooms were. LOVED that they had a free blow dryer/straightener. Great outdoor patio space and really friendly staff. For us the only minor draw back was that it was pretty loud most of the night lots of people hanging out and drinking, not a huge deal but worth... More
