Budget accommodation in Auckland.

Where to stay in New Zealand’s largest city? And, of course, as the largest city, this means it has a large choice of backpacker hostels. Here at Backpacker Guide NZ, we have done the hard work of separating the hostels not fit for a tramp and the marvellous mansions to rest your head at night – literally, there is a mansion.

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.

5. Metro Adventurer

New on the hostel scene in Auckland is the Metro Adventurer on Hobson Street. It’s so central that you can see the Sky Tower from many of the room windows! Relax in the newly kitted out lounge or large kitchen. Give it a go: Auckland’s newest hostel.

9. 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!
