Was nice place to stay at rooms were lovely, some cons to this is loud neighbours, and house keeping wasn't to great as no clean towels were left and cups didn't get cleaned, Just a few things to work on 😊 I'd stay here again, in hoping that these issues are better next time

City Lodge is clean and convenient, with friendly, helpful staff and a good community kitchen. The price is right and it's suitable for a short-term or long-term stay. Laundry facilities are handy, with an ironing board and a good iron. I would stay here again.

I love this hotel and have used it for over five years now. The staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgable. The rooms and in fact the whole building is incredibly clean and tidy - the only downside is the increase in road noise and rowdy customers of the "bar/club" across the road but there's not much the hotel can do...

we found this hotel as we were looking for a quick overnight budget stay but we were amazed at how clean, modern and comfortable this place is, the staff are just as helpful and professional if not more so than you would find in a 5 star hotel

The rooms are relatively basic however that was expected however it is a clean place to stay, it was quiet and provided for a good nights sleep. The location is close to the center (walking distance) however at night you do have to go through some dark streets. The staff was very friendly and helpful and could provide good information;...

City Lodge in Auckland has it all: good location, fantastic service, reasonable accommodation for a great price. We stayed in City Lodge during one month in our arrival to Auckland. The staff is very friendly and always prepared to help, the hotel is clean and we don't have any complains at all. The kitchen is very well equipped and has... More

I really like the place. Staff was very courteous and helpful. They have a very large common kitchen area which is good enough for everyone to cook. Rooms are quiet good. Overall it was a nice experience staying with City Lodge.

My boyfriend and I stayed at City Lodge for our last night in Auckland. It's in a good location but I thought it was slightly over priced for what it was. Rooms were clean with an en suite, plus tea and coffee making facilities which was nice. It's pretty basic and small but good if you're not going to be... More

Hi Sam_206, thanks for sharing your feedback. I'm sorry to hear about your thoughts on the value of City Lodge. By offering more facilities and a level of service higher than most other backpackers does cost a little more to manage. However I so delighted that you’re overall rating of City lodge was high. We hope to see again during... More
