A little further out of the city than intended (the walk home took a bit longer than the 30 mins and uphill) but otherwise fine. Easy parking and close to local restaurants/street shops and Mt Eden. Perfectly silent for a great night's sleep. Would definitely come back again. Thank you 😊

Beautiful building with a homely feel. Facilities, rooms and bedding are kept very clean. A long walk in to town cetre but only a 10 minute bus ride from right outside the door. The view from nearby Mount Eden is a must

I traveled by car, so this was a great hostel for me: free parking, quiet neighborhood, store nearby and just a quick drive to the inner city. Staff was helpful and friendly, facilities clean. Stayed there at the beginning and the end of my trip, no complaints!

Bon emplacement, manque de propreté à certains moments de la journée. Atmosphère vraiment bien.

Das Zimmer wurde während unseres Aufenthalts (3 Nächte) nicht einmal gereinigt und der Mülleimer nicht geleert. Die Spiegel hingen im Zimmer konsequent auf Zwergenhöhe. Die Küche ist kameraüberwacht. Ein Frühstück könnte bei dem Preis drin sein.

Je suis restée 4 nuits dans une chambre de 2 et j'ai passé 4 nuits très calmes, chambre propre, bien aménagée, wifi gratuit. Seul hic c'est de devoir payer pour avoir une lettre de justification de domicile pour ouvrir le compte à la banque. (De plus d'une personne à l'autre ils souhaitaient me la faire payer plus chère...)

I'm sad we only spent one night here, and then left for the airport early in the morning. We didn't get a chance to see the whole place or to really do much in the area, but the cabin we stayed in was exceptional!

This hostel had the best bed I've ever slept on. It was so soft and comfortable! And the staff members were really helpful.

Bus ride from city center, very quiet though if you're looking to recover from jet lag. Not a lot going on in the common areas. Not very good internet, but that's true all over NZ. EXTREMELY CLEAN - one of the cleanest hostels I've been to. Main reason to stay here is because it's quiet and close to Mt. Eden - everything else is a bus ride away.

The good: Well-equipped kitchen. Free wifi with 200mb vouchers per night. Bathrooms were clean and available. Room was relatively clean. Hostel was quiet at night. Plenty of free parking. The bad: Location is in a suburb-type area that is about 45-60 walk to the CBD and wharf. It is a bit far from many things that you would want to see in the city.

Mt Eden is a peaceful neighborhood of Auckland located just 30 minutes walk from the town hall in the city centre, to walk to the ferry terminal on the waterfront it would take you 50 minutes. There are also buses that go directly to the town hall from outside Bamber House. Our hostel is right next to Mt Eden and offers travelers a quiet and safe retreat from the noise of the city centre.

Das Bamberhouse mit seiner schönen Lage im ruhigen Grünen, unweit des Mt Eden ist ein gutes Hostel, dem einzigst hier und da die Sauberkeit fehlt! Sonst aber wirklich ein sehr schönes Hostel!!!:-)

Staff is awesome and super helpful. Rooms have plenty of space and a locker for locking up valuables. Good, fast, free internet is helpful. Only complaint would be that it's not in city center, but the bus is easy enough.

The staff at Bamber House make an effort to be extra helpful and make your trip special with tips and advice on how best to see New Zealand. One of the best thing about being in Mt Eden is the security and quiet that you just don't get in the city center. The neighborhood is very safe but still close enough to town that you can travel there by foot or by bus when you wish. We hope to see you back at Bamber House soon!

A beautiful building with great facilities, the cleanest hostel I have visited in a long time. A bit out of the city in a nice suburb but does have a regular bus service on the doorstep

Un accueil chaleureux et une équipe disponible et de bons conseils. L'auberge est bien située et le quartier est calme. Les pièces à vivre sont grandes et il y beaucoup de choses à disposition : jeux, ordinateurs, fauteuils, terrasse. La cuisine est fonctionnelle et bien équipée. Bref, tout pour passer un bon moment. Si nous devions trouvé un petit bémol ce serait l'isolation entre les pièces.

Bonne auberge de jeunesse avec tout le nécessaire et plutôt bien situé vers le Mont Éden (beaucoup de transports pour rejoindre le centre ville rapidement)!!! Attention dans les bungalows on ne capte pas le wifi!

Stayed here for the first 7 days of my 8-day Auckland trip. Bamber was excellent on all fronts. Great building, great atmosphere, clean bathroom/showers/kitchen. Farther from city center, but right next to Mt. Eden. Everything is well maintained, free wifi. Nice deck, and living room with lots of spots to lounge around. BONUS: they have a trampoline, cats and the cutest puppy, Mars.
