We booked there for 3 and were happy about the website information, until we get there : - no parking spot (only the street) - no attendance between 1 and 4 pm, not written anywhere in the booking nor in the lodge website. - We called the manager at 12h50 he answered he was coming for our check-in, we waited...

Nice and small hostel in Parnell, ca. 15' walk outside of town center, in a nice residential ristrict, no traffic noise, very quiet! Distance to town center, buses and harbour is easy walking, although with backpack. Friendly staff (after a few e-mails I also got back the refund for a canceled roomrate, thanx!), nice veranda, BBQ. Facilities are OK, kitchen... More

"Parking is available onsite" is what it said where I booked it from - yeah, 2 spaces, one used by a trailer. The rest is street parking which I can only gather is used by everyone else who lives on the street, or commuters. You just had to be lucky. There are many long term residents here, which I'm fine...

I had a single room downstairs - the room was comfy and quiet. The shared bathrooms and toilets are were clean enough but the kitchen was hit and miss. First thing in the morning it was clean and tidy, but after it had been used for a bit it got messy. Some ppl can even burn rice! I only used... More

This has to be the dirtiest, most over priced and worst managed backpackers ever. I stayed two nights and it was awful. The kitchen was filthy and the showers were so bad I went to a gym to shower. The owners were unhelpful and when challenged on their service and amenities became defensive and rude. Worst $65 per night I... More

Slightly renovated in 2014, nice living room, small but useful kitchen. Suitable for long-termers. Showers have a good pressure, smaller rooms have own fridge. At my time there, WiFi was relatively good, free and unlimited (which is rare in NZ). Duvet covers however are not washed as frequent as needed. Neighbour often complains and calls the noise control.

Lantana Lodge has the best water in New Zealand. Nice location away from the cbd, but still walking distance. Good for long term hostellers or hostellers looking for a friendly environment. Not the best kitchen, but good value for the price.

Lantana Lodge is small and nice hostel in Parnell.... it's about 30 walking minutes from the city centre away but you can take the bus from Parnell Road. It's located in a residential area and there are 2 parcs nearby and just at the end of the road you'll find every weekend the famous french market. The Rooms are okay,... More

We stayed a little family in a Room. The hostel is well situated i the parnell area. But we were a bit disapointed about the Daily manager seemed to know nothing about the area (where to rent bikes, cars etc). The kitchen could really need a good cleaning, a was easily crowded.

Room tidy. Kitchen festy. Didn't want to cook there. Shelves & pantry overcrowded with food, random dishes. Bathrooms okay. Small no ventilation. Staff not that helpful but was a backpacker himself. A bunch of backpackers left one day and left their food on communal coffee table - food still there 24 hours later. Outside sunny verandah filled with empty ashtrays.... More
