I stayed here my first two nights in Auckland and I'm so glad I did! The staff is extremely friendly and all the facilities were very clean. I'm staying there again my last two nights in New Zealand because I liked it so much! I always felt safe and comfortable.

A really great little hostel. It's really clean, quiet and conveniently located. It's a minute walk from a bus stop and a great little street full of shops. In particular, the kitchen was great. Really clean, well-stocked, and tons of counter space. Only downside-no free, unlimited wifi. You do get a 200MB access card, but I used that up really quickly. You have to pay for more access. All in all, a great place to stay, would definitely return.

Great way to meet other like minded travellers and I also encountered a few locals living/working in the hostel which was great for local info. It is clear this is not a party hostel but a break from the city rush which is just what I needed. Staff were helpful as were the many notice boards :)

I stayed a week and could have stayed longer. Amazing hostel. One of the best I've been in. Kitchen is amazing, lounge just like home. Genuinely lovely and well situated in the nicest village.

Oaklands Lodge had a very relaxing vibe and a cheerful, mellow clientele. The three-bed room that I stayed in was spectacular: tons of space, a huge window for sunlight and fresh air, and two awesome fellow travellers. The manager, Jonny, was very helpful in recommending walks and nearby cafés. I would definitely stay here again.

Our stay at oaklands couldn't have gone better. It was our first stop on the start of our gap year and we received a lovely welcome at this hostel. The staff were very friendly and incredibly helpful when it came to organising the finer points involved in setting up for a working holiday. The location was excellent, a very calm and relaxing environment just outside the city centre. I would definitely stay there again

Was a great very clean hostel just outside the big city. Very easy to find and lots of day things to do around. Staff are super friendly and very helpful. You'll even get to know some of the local very friendly cats who live next door who are just looking for a few scratches! Spent 5 days there and couldn't have asked for a better hostel!

I enjoyed my stay at Oaklands Lodge. It was very clean, spacious and well maintained. The dorm was not too crowded and was airy. The manager Johnny was very helpful and always polite even if he was busy, he still found time to answer questions. The kitchen was very well stocked and there was plenty of storage space. Good mix of occupants from all different countries and of all ages. Will definitely stay again when i return to Auckland providing it is not full! would recommend to others.

We really enjoyed our stay in Oaklands lodge. The hostel is great and the rooms are clean. They have a great kitchen with enough space fore lots of people. Both managers are very nice and try to help you with almost everything. They give you lots of information about Auckland city. There is a busstop near by, witch takes you directly to the city centre of Auckland.

No qualms regarding this hostel, i enjoyed my stay though i wish there was a proper living room, however there is an outdoor area. It is very close to the main road where you can grab some really good food! Comfy beds and a free wifi code provided of 200mb, not too shabby.

Thank you for your comments. Not sure what you mean by there is no proper living room? We have a living room with a TV with a multitude of films. There is also a reading corner too. We are pleased you enjoyed our comfy beds and our outdoor area.

The staff at Oaklands Lodge was really friendly and helpful. Mt Eden is a cool location with a bunch of nice little shops and restaurants closeby. Definitely a good hostel where I would stay again.
