Staff helpful. Room a good size. Little things disappointed like the crappy chair, unwiped tables and broken toilet fixture. Generally a good experience with a great location and good facilities. The Beehive in the yard didnt look very active !
Very nice hostel a little uphill from city centre. 3-bed ensuite was comfy but still quite small. Big windows make the room very bright and friendly. Kettle and complimentary tea bags inside the room were a nice treat. Kitchen was in good condition. Don't worry if you can't get a parking space in the backyard, there is free parking in the street from 6 pm to 8 am.
It was great. Very nice staff, very clean and tidy. Near the city centre. We enjoyed our stay at City Lodge in Auckland.

We had a private double room. The room was very clean. But impossible to sleep due to terrible party teenagers/backpackers outside. They were SO loud and wouldn/t calm down till 4 am. About 6 am heavy vehicles started to load/unload right beneath the windows. The same repeated the second nigh:(
Typical NZ hostel - very impersonal, charge you for everything, and make you check out at 10am. Quite a walk up hill to get to. Overall it was fine I guess. Spacious and comfortable rooms.
Far too expensive for a tiny room and check out at 10am. Hotel prices with hostel accomodation. Unfortunately not a hostel atmosphere though. Rooms cramped especially toilet and shower - I'm not very big and even I felt claustrophobic in the double room private ensuite shower. There has to be better value than this in Auckland
Lovely staff and comfortable rooms at a decent price.
Great value for money, facilities are immaculate and the location very handy for either Queen St, K-Rd or Ponsonby.
