The host Jonny or Thomas was super charged and friendly! We had minimal contact with his but he was so helpful. We booked a double room and got Room 9. It was just a good size. Two luggage open, with still ample space to sit walk around. And the hostel is planned such a way that you dont have to... More

This hostel got it all. I didn't think myself picky but it was very hard to find a good hostel in Auckland till I arrived here. A clean, big kitchen with everything in it you'll need and individual storage cupboards. Clean, nice and warm rooms. The single roome is a bargain. A cozy living room with a big bookshelf and...

If asked to pick one reasons to go back again, that'd be Mt Eden Village that sits right out of the street. Shops, cafes, restaurant, groceries, cars, buses and locals. It's far better than the busy pace of Auckland CBD with ppl walking fast and high buildings. For solo traveller to use public transport (like myself), be sure to plan... More

Thank you for your comments we value all of them. On peak times of the day the kitchen and bathrooms are busy, but this is the same in all hostels when people are trying to cook food and coming back from their day's adventures. Rules are also in place to make sure everyone enjoys their stay and no one ruins... More

The Oaklands Lodge is one of my favourite hostels in New Zealand. I have been there for about 3 and a half month and it was an awesome time! It is a very clean hostel, the staff is very friendly... Well the hostel turned into a second family for me. If you ever go to Auckland, go to the Oaklands... More

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.

The hostel is a house style in cozy Mount Eden village. 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. The room is lovely with elegant look and good facilties. There is also common living room with big books,sofa for a good rest... More

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
