From city centre convenience to inner suburb hostels with character, you’re bound to find something to fit your needs in Auckland.

1. Haka Lodge Auckland

Featuring pod beds for ultimate privacy, this brand new Auckland hostel is built around the backpacker. Haka Lodge is refreshingly spacious for a city hostel. However, the secret is out about this accommodation situated on Karangahape Road (K Road) so you’ll want book a little in advance to get a bed!

2. Ponsonby Backpackers

The best hostels are often the hardest to find. Ponsonby Backpackers is well hidden in the heart of Auckland Central’s closest suburb, Ponsonby – just in case the name didn’t make it clear enough. Book early to get a spot!

4. Attic Backpackers

Well-hidden inside a long corridor, up an old lift, behind a locked door and whatever else, this jewel in Auckland Central is often fully booked. Again, make sure to book early.

8. The Brown Kiwi

This small hostel in one of Auckland’s most popular inner-suburbs is well worth considering.

Enjoy free unlimited internet, a secret sunny garden, farmhouse kitchen and free parking!

Socialites who want to be in the centre of it all, Base Auckland is the perfect option. With a rooftop bar, Hello Sunshine, at the top of the hostel and a partner bar, Habana Joes, at the bottom, you’ll always be close to the party!
