I was really impressed with this hostel. We mainly dealt with manager Andrew who was professional, polite and friendly which is such a refreshing change! I slept really well in my room - the hostel is big enough for people who like to drink/stay up late to do so without infringing on others who want to sleep. There's doors between... More

Stopped for one-night here to recover from long haul flying before heading off. Friendly welcome at reception; clean hostel with a nice atmosphere; good kitchen facilities. A hostel out of the city which is quiet but homely. Close to Mt Eden which has great views over Auckland.

In November 2014 I relocated from South Island and was looking for a temporary place to stay in Auckland. I had no place to stay and then I found this place online and booked myself in. Due to Christmas approaching there wasn't much option available but Andrew (In-charge) somehow managed to find me a room to stay. He is very... More

Thanks for that I know our staff appreciate the feedback. We are fortunate to have so much parking as having a car in Auckland can be difficult. It is much easier to leave your car and get a bus into the city which only takes ten minutes and then you can discover why Mt Eden is one of Auckland's favourite... More

While not in the city center, the bus stop is just across the street. Comfortable, securer ooms, with great, friendly and helpful staff. They are in the business to help you sleep so the beds and pillows are very comfy.

as far as the accommodation and facilities go, this place is very nice. clean and comfortable rooms with good bathrooms and communal areas, the kitchen is also fully equipped and preparing any meal can be done with ease, the thing that lets the place dow is the attitude of some of the temporary staff that are working here for free...

We are sorry some of our cleaners upset you. Unfortunately getting locals to do this is almost impossible so it is a balancing act. We have a new crew in now.

I booked my room based on the location to Downtown Auckland and beautiful Mt Eden. I was delighted to find a place with such amazing energy. The rooms are spacious and my bed was super comfortable. The best thing about Bamber House is the feeling of welcome. I have stayed in 200 a night B&B's that were not as charming.... More

We are pleased you enjoyed staying in our lovely old villa. You get to enjoy being in an inner city suburb off the main tourist track but right by one of Auckland's most visited tourist sites Mt Eden itself but just a ten minute bus ride or 30 minute walk if you feeling energetic from the city itself.

I enjoyed my stay at Bamber. We were upgraded to an Ensuite private room (I assume because they ran out of everything else), and it was a very nice little mother-in-law apartment type thing, completely separate from the main house. This was nice because it was quiet and accessible from the side yard without having to go through the house,... More
