It was difficult to contact the front desk due to my last minute check in and poor signage at the front desk that provided directions on how to contact the manager. Once able to contact the manager, he was very friendly and helpful.


Smaller hostel located a bit of a walk from downtown Auckland but had a great atmosphere. Staff and other residents were extremely friendly. All in all good place to crash for longer term residents.


The best hostel I stayed in Auckland! Incredible people and staff (Micky, the receptionist is the best person ever) Love this place.

Staying at Lantana Lodge is a really good option if you want to live close to the city center.It takes you about 20 minutes to get there.The hostel is located in a good area and it's a very beautiful house.The staff is very helpful and friendly.The kitchen wasn't that clean,but well equipped.Altogether we had a great stay!


Kitchen was festy. Didn't want to cook in there. Was going to eat our breakfast on the outside verandah but was littered with ashtrays filled with cigarette butts. Off putting.
