4th time stay, a mix of business and pleasure. First 2 were in the great self contained units, last time in a bunk room. This time in a double room, sharing facilities. Faultless every time. C ya next time

Arrived at bamber house with the intention of staying 3 nights, due to the quality facilities and excellent work from the receptionist kay I ended up staying two weeks. Kitchen was very well equipped and staff very friendly. While being a quiet hostel there is still a great atmosphere and I would certainly recommend staying there.

Enjoyed the Bamber house. There were mostly positives. Check in was easy. The double room we stayed in was a nice corner unit on the second floor. It was basic but had end tables next to the desk and windows that opened up. The bed was quite comfortable. The bathrooms were descent and clean. The kitchen is small and can... More

Bamber House is the first hostel I've stayed out on my travels round New Zealand and I couldn't of asked for a better place to start it, the other guests were very welcoming, the facilities were good, the hostel was very clean and the managers were inclusive, starting activities such as a BBQ, playing tennis or going up to watch...

Thanks for the positive feedback. Mt Eden is a fun place to stay in Auckland with the volcano summit being a great viewing spot during the day and at night. We are a short bus ride from downtown but most guests would rather not navigate the Auckland traffic and are happy to park their cars in our fre carpark. Meeting... More

Less than 10 minutes walk from the Airbus Express stop at 75 Dominion Rd so getting from the International Airport was easy. Not so easy for my daughter who arrived early the next morning and rented a car at the airport. She omitted Mt Eden when entering the address on her GPS, so be aware there are two 22 View... More

Yes the scaffolding is down. The house is looking great. Unfortunately a new roof and painting has to be done in spring and summer which is our high season. Still won't need to be done again for year and it was due a facelift. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip. More

I absolutely loved my stay at Bamber House. I checked in late after redemption closed because of my flight and received an email beforehand telling me how to get in and there was a note waiting for me inside the front door with the key to my room. The staff was extremely friendly and Jennifer is the best. My room... More

We are pleased that you loved our hostel. Mt Eden is an iconic city fringe neighbourhood close to the city but away from the hustle and bustle. This is the place to be if you want to get a feel for how the locals live with lots of trendy cafes and restaurants close by. More

This hostel is located about 40 minutes walk from CBD, in a nice neighbourhood. The bus stop is just outside. The house itself is very nice; large, old and beautiful. Unfortunately, there was a lot of renovations going on while we stayed there so we couldn't quite see how it's supposed to look like. We stayed in a double which... More

I think a lot of our guests have been travelling for awhile and when they find somewhere they are comfortable that hang around for a bit. It use to confound me too but I know when you have been travelling for months it is sometimes nice just to pause a little. Actually we have more and bigger communal areas than... More

I stayed in bamber house for 8 days and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. The staff is lovely, the house itself is beautiful and offers a lot of space to relax and socialise with the other guests. The overall atmosphere was amazing.

Thanks for your review. Bamber House is over 100 years old and was built as a family home when it would have been in a largely rural area.

Bamber House has a great location, only 2 blocks from the base of Mount Eden. In 30 minutes, you can walk to the top of the dormant volcano for the exercise and the great scenic views. In about as much time, you can take the bus to Queen Street, in downtown Auckland. There are shops, cafes, and groceries within walking... More
