Noisy in the night, party almost every night. It was impossible to sleep. And it was really messy.... the kitchen was dirty, the bathrooms and toilets were... More

We are sorry that you had this experience. We have been investigating what happened. Our senior manager had taken 5 days off and it would seem the duty manager let things get out of control. There was a leaving party and non guests were invited. We are dealing with the issues that you raised and hope this will not happen... More

1 week at Bamber House made a transition to Auckland extremely easy. Flexible, eager to accommodate, and best of all: civil. Overall a very pleasant stay that and welcoming environment. Facilities were more than adequate, and very well maintained.

We chose this accommodation to be close to family. The property is a unique old multi storey building set back from the road, with good car parking. The manager Alex was polite and friendly and showed us to the cottage with en suite, a tidy clean unit. He clearly explained the facilities available. The bed was comfortable and the neighbourhood...

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
