“A great place to stay ! clean rooms and bathrooms + great kitchen”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

I stayed 2 night at Silverfern Backpacker in the 8 beds dorms. The backpackers has been renovated recently and is really nice inside. Toilets and shower are really clean and the bathrooms are spacious. The kitchen is big and offers all you need to cook a great meal and share it with people. There is a TV room and a living room to chill out.
The backpacker is really well located and the staff is friendly.
I would highly recommend this place.

Nice new clean hostel. Walkable from downtown (a little far out, but still walkable). Facilities are very clean and nice. Kitchen is large with lots of things to help you cook a home meal. Nice TV room and lounge area. Only compliant is the temperature of the rooms. I was in the 12 dorm and it was sweating hot...and this was on a day where I wore a jacket outside because it was a bit chilly. They do have fans, but doesn't help at all....wicked hot!!!

We've stayed twice in this place and really liked it. Everything was clean and new, they only opened somewhere late 2011. The matresses were all new and comfortable and it's probably the cheapest place to stay in Auckland ($19 for a 12-bed dorm).

They have nice lounge area, a cinema room and a well-equipped kitchen which was always neat. Only con is the daily 50mb internet restriction, which you only receive once if you stay in the cheapest, 12-bed dorm. Otherwise you'll get one voucher pppd. I understand it's like this almost everywhere in NZ, but I think it's just plain ridiculous that you'll find free wifi everywhere on the globe, even in third-world countries such as Nepal, but in NZ you still have mb-restrictions or have to pay for it.
