I had booked, and pre-paid, an air BnB lodging for my two week sojourn in Auckland. The accommodations, however, were totally inadequate, and the nice young host's parents or grandparents were overtly hostile. So when I unexpectedly had to make a quick trip to Wellington,...More

Nice place to stay, clean rooms, friendly helpful staff and great location. Kitchen has everything you need with a nice sitting outdoor. Will be perfect once they finish the elevator to the 5th floor :)

About
Description
The Attic is a fresh and vibrant, newly refurbished top floor backpackers situated in the heart of the city centre, on Wellesley Street, just steps from the iconic Auckland Skytower and the hustle and bustle of ...More Queen Street. Sleeping a maximum of 100 guests, we are a smaller inner city hostel than most, offering guests a central location and budget accommodation with a difference. Ride our traditional, 'old school' service lift to the top floor, which opens straight out on to The Attic. Enjoy a tour of our place upon check in, no impersonal pointing to your room and off you go, we want you to feel at home with us. Some of our larger dorms feature dividers so that even our most budget options are still as comfortable as a smaller dorm, attention to detail is important here at The Attic. Incredibly friendly and helpful, we go the extra mile to make your stay with us that little bit more special. Our guests comfort is the most important thing for us and we pride ourselves on creating a chilled, helpful and caring hostel environment in Auckland city centre! Less
