Stayed for a two short days. Accommodation is clean, cozy and fully equipped with kitchen ware. Just few steps to go to bank and post office if you are a work visa holder and you want to apply bank & ird account. Bus is also convenient to go to city area. Highly recommend this lodge in the lovely village.

This is a great homely hostel on the edge of Auckland. I've been staying in an 11 bed dorm which is comfortable & probably the quietest dorm I've stayed despite there being plenty going on in the hostel. The staff are friendly & really helpful & there's pretty much everything you need from a hostel, clean hit showers, communal kitchen... More

I stayed in Oaklands Lodge one night. I was treated like royalty, with a friendly welcome and freebies thrown in that I was not expecting. My room was clean and quiet, and the other facilities were as advertised. I recommend this hostel without hesitating.
