Hostelworld says:

Hostelworld guests say Bamber House is 'ideally situated for easy access to downtown Auckland'. It's located in a picturesque neighbourhood just a short walk from great views over the city on Mount Eden. This hostel features free BBQ facilities, clean rooms with comfortable beds, a large kitchen and a home-like atmosphere, thanks to their friendly staff, who 'go out of their way to help you with anything you need', according to our visitors. We like that guests can also enjoy free tennis here.

Property Information:

Bamber House is a beautiful colonial lodge situated in the peaceful and leafy suburb of Mt Eden, Auckland, just a short bus ride or a 30 minute walk into town.

We are perfectly located if you want to mix it with the locals with a good choice of popular cafes, bars and shops and a large supermarket just a short walk away. We are ideal for those travellers searching for the chilled out New Zealand experience away from the big city but close enough to enjoy the town's attractions when it suits. Car parking in the city can be really expensive so our free off street car parking is a big advantage if you have a car. If you want to be right downtown this is not the place for you.

We have beautiful parks and Mt Eden itself on our doorstep affording panoramic views of the entire city and providing excellent opportunities to enjoy the outdoors.

Our friendly hostel has a choice of dorms and private rooms in addition to clean and spacious communal areas, a log fire and a beautiful big garden. We can accommodate guests from the age of 10 upwards although only those aged 18 and over can be booked into our share rooms.

Our experienced staff are at hand to offer the best advice on travel itineraries around New Zealand and can book you onto any activities and excursions at short notice as well as arranging hire cars at great rates.

We regularly provide activities within the hostel to keep you entertained and ensure you have every opportunity to meet your fellow travellers. We offer a range of activities in our comfortable lounge area and frequently arrange trips into the city to try out a few bars and clubs, ten pin bowling or catching the latest blockbuster at the cinema. We also have all the usual board games and a book exchange.

Our check-in time is from 2pm although if your room is available we will check you in when you arrive or as soon as the room becomes available, we contact all bookings with helpful tips on the best way to reach us. Each guest also receives 200mb of free WiFi on arrival. We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful home soon!

We only accept bookings from people between the ages of 18-40 in the dorms

  • Bamber House says

    I think what our guests really appreciate is that we offer great customer attention and support in making the most of your time in Auckland and New Zealand. We're proud of our stunning mansion, which has spacious grounds and a range of activities throughout the week to give you that extra option to explore Auckland and meet other travellers.
    We're literally just a stone's throw away from Mount Eden, so guests are easily able to take the small trek up to the top of Mount Eden to take in the awesome sight of Auckland from above.
    I guess you could say our hostel is ideal for those guests looking to avoid noisy party hostels but still wanting to have fun and meet people from other cultures around the world. Most of our guests are aged between 20-35 but we also commonly have backpackers of 40+ staying with us.
