It was my first days in Auckland and it was a good election to choose this hostel. It's in a good location, in the center but not noisy. Friendly atmosphere, everything was clean and the wifi there works very good. Althought many people is living there, you can meet some travellers :).

Free wifi was great, you can also borrow a towel, staff is nice. It's kind of far from the busstop, there are to many longterm people, no place in the fridges, kitchen is too smal. Showers were great!

The hostel was very clean and the staff were accommodating. It's not a party hostel but more of a working hostel - which is fine, because that's what I was looking for.

Thank you for your feedback. it is really unfair to us. you came early before our reception hour, we try our best to help you, put your big luggage in our storage room and give you free wifi code and enjoy our free coffee and tea before the check in, when you check out, you didn't take your bag out from the room without our permission. we are sorry that you lost something, but if no one hand to us, it is hard for us to find it, what we can do, tell our cleaner to check it.

Crowded and cramped. There were also some rotting vegetables on the counter.

I enjoyed my stay here. Reasonable price and good location being at the top of queens street. The guest here are an interesting mix of travellers and people who are staying there long term. I would happily come here again.

Newton Lodge is by far one of the best hostels I've stayed at! No waiting for a shower, furniture and beds were new and felt fresh, quiet and small hostel with friendly staff. Recommend!

Newton Lodge is a nice place to stay on the southern edge of downtown Auckland. The staff supports all needs and cleans all the mess after a party night in the common room. On the other hand the staff failed to fullfill the 7th night discount. The services include a self service kitchen, free wifi and hot showers all day long. In addition the hostel contains an interesting mix of longstay guests and backpackers.
