Quite adequate for our needs and good value. We arrived very late at night and had no problem getting to our room and while the addition of a small fan would help with the ventilation it was fine. Very pleasant and helpful staff and all around good value. All rooms have an en suite shower.

Good location, very friendly personal, good organized and close to the city. Well prepared and clean kitchen. Perfectly to join the fitness club next door. You'll get a discount... If I come back to Auckland I'll stay in City Lodge again.

We stayed here once before 6 years ago and were not disappointed this time around either. Clean rooms with fridge, bathroom and TV. Good cooking and laundry facilities in the basement. There is also a large living area in the basement with a huge TV with all the channels you might need. Also some books, magazines, games and vending machines... More

Basically chosen for low cost as we planned the trip rather last minute and hadnt put any cash aside. I'm not sure what I was expecting but was pleasantly surprised; great location as close to Queen St but pretty quiet, room was on the small side but have paid a lot more for not much bigger - clean and tidy,...

Clean and quiet. Comfortable beds, but high humidity throughout the building. Free sunscreen! Handy 24/7 convenience store across the road, and just a short stroll to Queen St or K-Rd. We booked six rooms and we'd all consider staying again.

Good location. A hotel that provides the basics - a clean room, bed, toilet and shower. Refrigerator in the room, kitchen facilities in the basement. Fair price, friendly staff - we would surely use it again.

We've had a very good time staying in the City Lodge. The rooms are clean, the kitchen is well-appointed and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Wifi worked really well and wasn't that expensive. After seven days it almost felt like home. Thank you for the nice time and the free sunscreen ;-)

The first and last night of our holiday we've spent here. That we came back a second time already points out that we like it. The location is great, nearby the airport bus, 24 hours reception, friendly staff, efficient and clean rooms. The beds we're good. the only thing it was really hot in the room and there are not...

Very clean and nice rooms. Staff were very helpful and the location is relatively central. If you don't want a party atmosphere this is probably the best backpacker in the Auckland CBD. Also, they do advertise a $35 fixed fare taxi to the airport, however we had problems with the taxi driver who claimed he knew nothing about this. It's... More

Convenient location close to city. Room on 4th floor was very hot with no air circulation, and there was a lot of noise outside all night - sirens, alarms, people shouting and talking loudly, so we didn't get much sleep. Small room and bathroom were very clean.
