“Had a great time there!”
Reviewed December 10, 2008

This hostel is really welcoming. The managers are very friendly, and it is kept clean.
I stayed in a 7 beds dorm and it was ok. There is a cosy lounge room were you can easily meet people, and the kitchen is quite big.
They also have a free internet connexion and a small library.
It is in Parnell, a pretty suburb of Auckland, nearby the Auckland museum. In 20 mm you can walk to the city centre.
I would definitely recommand this place. I was travelling alone, and it was the perfect place for me to meet other travellers.

  • Liked — It was clean, quiet in the room, but there was a nice space to "socialise"

We stayed in a double room for three nights at the Lantana and for the money it was perfect. The rooms are a good size and really clean and comfortable. Facilities are perhaps a little tight for the number of guests if you are all trying to cook at the same time, but this also adds to the friendly atmosphere.
Nice location behind the main streets of Parnell (just down from the larger City Garden Lodge) making it feel more homely than many city hostels.

Recommend booking early, as all the hostels around this area were booked up and this was in the quiet shoulder season.

It only misses 5 stars due to the slightly tight space as mentioned above, and the fact that we were ask to pay a fee to hold our bags for the afternoon before our flight even though they were just propped up in the corridor.

  • Liked — Free internet, proximity, clean good size rooms, friendly manager
  • Disliked — Toaster did not work, no shoes to be worn inside which can be a little grubby on the feet sometimes!
  • Stayed April 2008, traveled as a couple
