Verandahs Backpackers Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 27, 2013

Solo female traveler returning home for a visit. Very friendly staff, spacious clean room (I had a single occupancy double bedroom), quiet (very important after traveling), excellent facilities, very reasonable price! Huge communal areas and a great kitchen area. Will DEFINITELY stay again when I'm back

Nice, clean hostel. Friendly staff. Stayed in double room which was clean and tidy. Had shared bathroom which was also clean and tidy. Nice garden out back. Walking distance to some bars and restaurants. Need to take bus or a long walk to harbour/ferries etc. Would recommend. Taking shared taxi to and from hostel is cheapest option.

I stayed here for one night when I was in auckland. I Have no complaints apart from the small issue of it being a good 15min walk from queen street. Very much an older travellers hostel. Rooms and bathrooms super clean. Owner extremely friendly and helpful.

Only stayed here for one night but it really is Lovely and clean but most of all the guy Campbell couldn't have been lovelier, more helpful or more friendly. Recommend this to anyone who was thinking of staying here.

The views of the city from the Verandahs is great. The rooms are also very nice. Shower and bathroom facilities are good, although they are combined so sometimes there can be a wait to use them. The reception opening times can be an issue especially as wifi is not free and it is easy to underestimate your usage and run out at night.

I stayed in Verandahs for almost 3 months. It is a great hostel located in Ponsoby, close to great restaurants and cafes, and just 20 min walk to city center.
Rooms are spacious, bright and comfortable, has a big nice kitchen and dinning area, bathrooms are nice and clean, and a great garden for barbecues.
Campbell (the owner) is very friendly and helpful, if you have any question ask him he will give you great advises!

Stayed in the double ensuite for two nights. Very clean room if slightly on the small side but comfortable. Despite being near the road it was quite quiet. Communal kitchen good, well equipped. Lounge nice and plenty of seating inside and outside on the verandahs. Location was a 20 minute or so walk into the city centre. Not massively central but ok. Couple minutes walk from ponsonby road which had good bars/restaurants. Area hostel was located in didn't feel entirely safe to walk around at night, especially if your on your own. Friendly staff.
