The hostel is thoroughly clean and has a homely feeling. The atmosphere is chilled out, but the management is active and caring. There is zero tolerance for bad behaviour and the rules are fair and equal. This is a place to breathe and relax. Supermarket and shops are a short walk away (10-20 mins)and the main cbd is a pleasant... More

The hostel is located in the beautiful suburb of Mt Eden, just off a major city-bus route and a few minute walk to the train station. There's plenty of room in the house itself, the kitchen is quite big but gets full anyway during dinner time. Mt Eden Village and Dominion Rd where you'll find nice cafés, bars, eateries and...

I came to Auckland 3 weeks ago and been staying at Bamber House since then. Its situated in a nice residential area that feels more homely than the hostels in the cbd area. The house is big and has lots of common space to relax, cook and chat. There are a few rules about noises but they don't bother me... More

Great little hostel just outside of the city, a real little home away from home. They are only a 15 min walk away from the main supermarket, and 15 mins by bus to the CBD. The hostel is scrubbed daily so the rooms are always clean and you don't have to dread the bathrooms (shame about the missing door on... More

Bamber House is one of the nicest hostels I've stayed in. The rooms and common areas are clean, the people there are friendly, and the location is great -- a quick bus ride to downtown and a short walk to Mt Eden. I highly recommend staying at Bamber House during your visit to Auckland.

This was a quaint old house turned hostel full of really cool backpackers. Very clean, awesome staff, easy walk to the shops and a few good pubs. There's a Countdown market about 10 minutes walk. Wifi is good, not sure where the transit is but my mate said its about 20 min. on transit to CBD. It's in a residential... More

Bamber House was once a grand colonial home and still has many original features, including a beautiful old staircase. It is situated in Mt Eden an iconic inner city suburb on the side of a dormant volcano. It is in a residential area so it is not a party hostel and we have council imposed noise restrictions after 10.00pm outside.... More

Very friendly and helpfull staff, clean rooms and bathrooms. Well located in Mt Eden too, only a short bus ride from/to Auckland CBD. The atmosphere is nice, however nothing special compared to other hostels. Very satisfied overall, would recommend to anyone!

The hostel itself is very good. Well located for visiting the city, good transport links, plenty of OSP, good hostel managers. However, the internet coverage is woeful (and that's being generous). You get a free voucher on arrival, but you can give anything for free if it's poor quality. It's just taken 15 minutes to send a 5-line typed email.... More

We are please that you enjoyed our hostel and the iconic Auckland neighbourhood. Free off street car parking is a bonus in Auckland. Internet access is still not great in New Zealand and is relatively expensive. Free internet in hostels is still not available widely. We have recently had fibre installed in the street and expect it to be available... More

We were upgraded from a 6 bed dorm to a private twin with our own bathroom and it was more than you would expect from a hostel. They have a bunch of movies and books as well as games so that nice. The location is good, too. Not too far from the city centre. The hostel is really clean and... More

We are pleased that you enjoyed your upgrade and the other facilities in our hostel. We are 3.5 km from the city centre on a major bus route with a bus every ten minutes. We don't recommend parking in the city as it can cost you as much as your room for the night. Guests enjoy our large communal areas... More
