Old house in leafy mt Eden. It was clean and fresh. the best thing was free parking for our rental car so close to the city. We had a double room and the kitchen was well endowed with everything you need to make a good dinner.

A beautiful place to stay in Auckland, quiet and close from bank and shops. The place is very clean and tidy as the owners and managers make a backpacker suitable for everybody, working people, demanding guests, young travellers. They look after their guests like they care that you're far from home and need a place to feel safe (your car,... More

- Not a party hostel, in fact it seems to be a house that was renovated into a hostel - Parking space in the front which is free - The staff are nice and approachable - The distance to the city's downtown area is about 20-30 minutes walking - There is a dormant volcano nearby (mount Eden) which is also...

This hostel is pretty much a big old house. It is great! The receptionist is friendly and the rooms and bathrooms were good. Kitchen and dining room are spacious. Good off-street parking and about 10 minutes driving away from downtown. There is free wifi.

This place is brilliant, a fantastic old house on the outskirts of Central Auckland (about a 40 Min walk from Queen street and the harbour) which means it's out of the bustle, but easy to walk into. The manager, Andrew, was super-helpful. They have a very chilled cat, and a slightly loopy Choc Lab!

I've stayed for 7 days and the place is really nice. A lot of the guests were there on "longterm" basis and was often occupied with their own business, so if you are looking for a party place with alot of crazy people this might not be your place.. The location is good and quit, near Mt Eden and not... More

Best place to start your stay in New Zealand. The crew is there to help you with anything (visa, bank account, travel tips, etc.). The place is relaxing and your can have lot of fun with the other backpackers. Thank you Andrew for those awesome werewolves games! Thank you Rebecca for your tips about auckand!

nzsuze, Owner at Bamber House Hostel, responded to this review

We are pleased you enjoyed our free parking which hostels downtown can't offer. Being 3km or a 10 minute bus ride to the city is well advertised and most guests are prepared for this. Mattress preference is an individual thing but our innerspring mattresses which are all quite new and from NZs largest mattress manufacturer receive positive comments from most... More
