The location is the best, you are 3 blocks from Sky Tower and Queen Street. You don't need buses or public transport to go to the city centre. The Rooms and the kitchen are very clean and organize. I recommend if y

Excellent stay! Right near the city centre, only a short walk away. The rooms are well equipped and beds are comfortable. Customer service was also excellent and I felt comfortable asking questions. Bathroom, while small, is very clean and had a large mirror

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.
