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.

Great place! All the comforts offered. Most included with a very reasonable rate. Easy walking to center. All very pleasant. Best of all very eco friendly & energy efficient. An upscale backpacker hotel.

I was greeted my a friendly woman at reception who informed me that my room had been upgraded to a twin room (I booked a single) which I assume was due to booking issues as I was the only person staying in the room, but that wasn't an issue at all. The room was nicer than I expected and had... More

Very nice backpackers. Very clean and nice kitchen. Just one thing , the walls aren't very thick and you can hear your noisy neighbours.But this hotel still is a good and confortable one. Staff is also nice, ready all the times to help you.

Me and my daughter (18), stayed in City Lodge 8 nights in December and it was the most well organized "backpacker" I ever have been staying in. The reception was open 24/7, but as everything was in order we only used it few times. In the washing room it was 4 coin operated washing machines and dryers, and free washing... More

We stayed for 3 nights and we enjoyed it. We stayed in a deluxe room and it appeared more as a hotel than a backpackers place. The place is 5 mins walk from the tower (queen street = city centre). There is a nice coffee shop around the corner (Hollywood). We would come back.

Really compact room, affordable and in a good location. Staff were super helpful with everything. I'm not sure how hot Auckland gets, but there is no airconditioning, only a fan. There is, however, a heater for winter. Everything you need, nothing more.
