Great place to begin my adventure


Really enjoy my stay at Oaklands Lodge. In fact, I just booked today for 3 weeks!!! The hostel is very clean, the staff super friendly as the other guests and it feel very safe. It's almost like a home away from home,except that to have to share a room with total strangers!! ;) Totally recommend this hostel to anyone.


We have a very good stay in this backpacker and recommand it, Jonny, the manager have help us a lot by advising us and say all we should know. People there are respectfull and friendly, beds are good and rooms are calm.

quiet and clean place away from the city center. nice to avoid the party hostels in the center. bus to city center costs you 2$ only. i also like that its a flat building with just one floor up, it has a garden and you can climb up mount eden in 20 minutes. some comments complain about guests staying on long term. yes you will meet them and they can tell you a lot about their experience in nz! and you will also meet a lot of short term stayers. around 50/50 for my stay. i liked it that way!

I had a lovely stay at oaklands lodge the staff there are amazing and really helpful. Really clean, great location only 15 mins on the bus to the city and lots of local shops. All the people who stay there are friendly and chatty. There is a good sized kitchen with all that you need, bathrooms were spotless as are the bedrooms.
