This is a very place! We stayed 3 nights at a double room. The room was spacious, clean and with big windows opening up to the terrace. The kitchen is well equiped and there are some nice common places to chill and hang out. Every day there is an organized activity so there are many opportunities to meet other travellers.... More

Lovely Hostel, with a nice calm atmosphere. Just outside downtown Auckland but easily accessible. Close to Eden Park for the rugby and really clean and relaxed good internet access. Close to Dominion road and pubs and restaurants.

Was very impressed with Bamber from the moment I arrived. Clean and comfortable rooms, toilets/showers are well maintained and there were lots of common areas making it easy to meet other guests. They offer free wi-fi, there are lots of tips/posters/leaflets of things to see and do, also advising on free activities and things for a rainy day. Auckland centre... More

I stayed here twice and it never failed to impress on both occasions. Simply a home away from home, Bamber has comfortable beds with clean and well maintained bathrooms. Additional goodies include two shelves of books, comfy lounge, big dining area and kitchen with a great outdoor deck. Managers, Laura and Aurelien were very friendly - thank you to both... More

Couldn't decide between two and three stars. However the other 3* reviews reflect my impression quite well. The building is nice, as well as the common area. Staff welcome is pleasant, lots of tips, free wifi. Kitchen ok, outside seating area fine. Showers and toilets kept clean. All the magic is gone when you enter the room (twin room, ground... More

The hostel is located in Mt. Eden a nice suburb of Auckland. 15 minutes away from city centre (by bus). We went here two times. First time after a long flight of 40 hours, it was really good to take a rest down here. Second time after 3 weeks drive around the whole country, it was a pleasant return. The... More

Lovely building, kitchen was well equipped and staff were friendly, we stayed in a room in the ground floor and felt like the hostel needed some more toilets downstairs, plus it always smelled of cigarettes in the toilet, maybe coming from the outdoor smoking area. The room was fine, nice to have electricity plugs on a timer to save power.... More
