Mount Eden is a nice part of Auckland..plenty of good coffee shops. Oaklands was great: quiet, clean. The staff were helpful and courteous. We stayed there on our first night in Auckland and later on when coming back through that city again.

This serves a good choice for accommodation to explore the stylish side of Auckland, which is connected to downtown area by bus for around 20 mins.

Oaklands was suggested to us as a place to stay on our recent trip to Auckland for the Bruce Springsteen concert. It was PERFECT! Clean, comfortable,affordable, friendly staff and fellow backpackers, felt more like a flat than a hostel. Room was really nice, we were lucky enough to have a front room upstairs which was spacious and sunny, plenty of... More

Stayed here one night last month and had a lovely, restful time and slept well on the comfy bed. I only wish I'd found it sooner and had been able to stay longer! Right by mt Eden and a quaint row of shops and cafes to explore.

I stayed here one night in the single room, my only complaint is that no one observes the be quiet after 10.30pm signs that are around... More

I stayed a short night arriving late and leaving early the next day. However, from my experience staying at a few hostels in Auckland previously, I would say this is the best one so far that I've been in. I was in the 8 bed dorm. There are no bunk beds in there which was great. I noticed the place... More
