Stayed here recently and it was great. The rooms are clean and really safe. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. And the location is ideal. You are literally around the corner from banks, cafes, restaurants, and a direct bus into the city. Would highly recommend.

Oaklands Lodge is located in a leafy, vibrant suburb with a combination of culture and nature. Close by you can walk to the top of Mount Eden’s volcanic cone for some of the best views in Auckland! Afterwards, take a short and cheap $2.50 one-way bus trip to the heart of the CBD. Cafes, restaurants, fruit shop, and bus stop... More

The backpacker is perfectly located :10min walking to the top of Mount Eden, in the center of beautiful Mount Eden village, 10 min from Auckland CBD. The house is really big with a nice living room, a large kitchen open 24h and fully... More

I was supposed to only stay 1 week at Oaklands, I've been staying there for the past few months and it has truly become my home in Auckland. The staff is very welcoming and always there to help, everything is clean and the area is amazing (I can see Mt Eden from my room). The bus stop is right on... More

We loved our stay at Oaklands Lodge. A relatively small hostel, everything was exceptionally clean (including the kitchen - a big plus) the people approachable and friendly, the beds are comfy and the lounge is cosy with a wide selection of DVDs and books, including guide books. They also give 200 mbs of free wifi, unlike many hostels in New... More

Mount Eden is a lovely area to stay, with lots of cafes, shops etc. There is a bus really close to the lodge that brings you directly into the city centre also. The lodge itself is very friendly, especially Johnny the manager who knows the answer to just about any question you can throw at him. They organise poker/rugby/movie/dinner nights... More
