City Lodge is in a great location, easy walk to the city and close to transport. The staff were all excellent, very polite and always helpful. The quad room was great, the huge kitchen facilities were top quality and the entire lodge was very clean and well maintained. Highly recommend City Lodge and will definitely stay again.

We have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions. It is very clean with everything you need. It is either a 10 minute walk to the Viaduct or a short taxi ride. You can walk to Queen Street easily. I always try and get parking but can usually manage to get something on the street if the car parking available... More

This hostel provides reasonably priced accommodation in a very central location. Everything is well catered for and the location really was the clincher. I can recommend them and would stay there again.

The hostel is clean, full facilities (kitchen, laundry, etc), well-equipped room (although small). Staff is very helpful and friendly. Location is close to city-centre. Best hostel I've stayed so far. A little loud if your room is on the street side and the walls are thin that you hear everything happening beside you.

Stay was good. Service staff were awesome. They were willing to go the extra mile for whatever you require. Only issue I had was the toilet that kept flushing by itself. Staff tried to solve issue but problem remained. Overall it was a good stay. Do note that hostel is located on top of a hill, so if you have... More

Hi and thanks for sharing your feedback. Not sure about the self flushing toilet I will check with our maintenance department to make sure this has been fixed. Could be offered as a great selling feature as a no hands required toilet but a bit wasteful on water... Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. I hope you enjoyed... More

New Zealand is known for its high caliber hostels but I think City Lodge takes it to a new level. Yes, it's basically an upscale home for wayward youths (also called travelers) which tries to emulate a home experience for those who finds themselves in a foreign country. But, oh, how they try. The first thing you notice is how... More

We've spent 4 nights in the City Lodge by the end of May 2014. It's a pretty close to Queens St. and K-Road so you can walk there. We had a superior double room which was small but not too small. The accomodation is designed in a good functional way and was very clean and tidy. It was also nice... More

Finding city lodge was easy after getting the bus from the airport after a long flight from the uk. City lodge is within walking distance from the busy queens road, auckland but is on quite a long steep hill for those who like walking its fine, although you could get a bus. The hostel it's self is very clean and... More

Small basic room, but okay place to stay a night. Common areas are inconveniently located, and I haven't seen anybody using them anyways - it's not a hostel where you can socialize. Internet package has very small data allowance - only 200mb. Can buy more, but it's becoming expensive. Giving it a neutral rating - I neither hated this place... More
