Thank you for your review and also for the comment about a sign. We are currently in the process of getting a new sign for our backpackers to make it easier for future guests to find us, as we do merge in with the surrounding suburban buildings.

Located in the cutest little neighborhood you ever did see, Mount Eden is a perfect compromise. It has the community vibe that I think a lot of travelers dig and is a single short bus ride from the "center" if that's what you fancy. Highlights: SERIOUSLY THE MOST COMFORTABLE BEDS, movie room with lots of options, huge communal kitchen, coin-op... More

Thank you for your review. We are situated just outside the city centre, which is a perfect location if you are after a quiet place near to amenities such as cafes, restaurants, butchers, pharmacy, banks, bakery and much more! With Mt Eden volcano and Mt Eden gardens just a short walk away you will find plenty to do here. Or... More

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to review us too. We are a quiet hostel outside from the city centre.

I've been staying here for over 10 years. It's not far from Downtown in a quiet cul de sac. It's very clean, the staff are fabulous and very accommodating (thanks Johnny and Kylie!), it's quiet, buses go every 5 minutes from 30 metres away in both directions, a bus also goes to the airport regularly. There are plenty of shops... More

The surrounding village is such a nice area with nice cafes, so you can just relax there more than CBD. The thing is the wall is thin, you just hear everything from the next door. Except for this, the room and the toilet were all clean, I was satisfied with my choice to stay here. オークランドのCBDからバスで15分くらいのMt.Eden近くの住宅地の中にあります。Skybusのドライバーに頼めば歩いて3分ほどのポイントで降ろしてくれるほか、カフェや雰囲気の良さ気なレストランが集まってて周辺の環境は静かながら便利で、CBDのバックパッカーに泊まるよりは落ち着いた静かなステイが出来ると思います。(Mt.Edenもすぐそこです)ただ、壁がとても薄く、隣の部屋の音が丸聞こえです。シングルルームに泊まったのに、隣の部屋(ツイン?)が煩く困りました。 部屋やトイレ、シャワーは綺麗で良かったです。
