Evrrything was really good. The bed was amazing and the staff were really helpful considering I had to check out before the front desk opened. The only thing that I can criticize, and this is just what very small thing is that it took a couple of minutes for the shower to earn up in the morning.

Loved my stay I extended it for 2 more nights :D One problem I can only pick at is the showers..... I slipped. A bath mat might be handy, unfort I didn't have a spare towel to put on wet floor. Free to use hairdryers and straighteners, now you cannot get that anyway else :-). And free 3hr WiFi = Epic! I am deffo making another last stay next year. I be back :-)

Pretty standard, but apparently better than most in Auckland. Didn't have "luxuries" like shampoo dispensers, bedside lamps, etc. but fairly clean, comfy and accomodating.

Nice, clean Hostel in the middle of town. Especially appreciat the fact, that you can store any bags here for free for a while, that makes traveling a lot easier.

Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Great location for the money, in the centre and close to the airport bus route.

We made a 2 separate bookings for a mixed dorm room for 8 people. After doing the booking we sent them a email asking if we can all stay in the same room and they tripled saying it was fine. When we checked in they moved us all into separate dorms and said that don't do group bookings. I asked several times for a toilet paper to be replaced in the ladies bathroom. Great location, hang out areas were really nice. Some staff were ok.

By far the best hostel (of 4)I've stayed in in the auckland CBD in terms of cleanliness, facilities, noise and location. The place is well thought out, has friendly helpful staff, and although is so central, was relatively quiet at night

I loved the atmosphere here and made a lot of friends - meeting people in the Attic was one of the highlights of being in Auckland.

One of the nicest hostels I've stayed at in New Zealand! It's very chilled so if you're looking for a party atmosphere this isn't the right hostel for you but if you want to relax and keep things low key then this is a great choice.

This is one of my favorite hostels I've stayed in! It definitely deserves a higher rating than it has. Everyone staying there had just arrived on a working holiday visa so it's a good place to start if you're here to work. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the location was very central.

Thanks for the Awesome Review! We are glad you enjoyed yourself, and we couldn't agree more, we definitely deserve a higher rating ;-) Our staff are our greatest asset! They are good huh? Some have been here slightly longer (nearly a year now!) so have excellent advice when it comes to travel and getting around New Zealand, but also know exactly how to get travelers on their feet here. Come and see us again soon! Cheers Attic Team

The hostel is great and I would come back, but they should pay attention that sometimes the female bathroom is way cold and also the water in the showers sometimes were not warm enough and also get completely cold in the middle of your shower.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanks for spending the time to leave us a review. The bathrooms are normally slightly colder first thing in the morning, this is due to us needing to keep good ventilation in there to make sure there is no damp. The water can also take a little bit to heat up in peak times (good old morning rush!) you will get this with any hostel, the water does get toasty though if you give it a bit of time :-) We are glad you enjoyed your stay! come and see us again soon! Cheers The Attic Team

Thanks for the Review! We do understand the winter has been hard on us here, we were a little bit surprised at how cold it got! (it was our first winter in this building) That being said we do have free blankets (refundable deposit) and we are really glad you appreciated the beds, they are rather toasty and comfy! Be sure to come and check us out again when you come back to Auckland! Cheers The Attic Team

Nice and clean hostel with very friendly staff who where really helpful with booking tours for my (without adding a booking fee). Location is good, a bit noisy but it is in the middle of the city so thats just how it is. It was relatively cold in the rooms and facilities, you can get an extra blanket for free so be sure to get that!

The hostel is in a great location in the center of the city and the staff was really friendly and helpful. The facilities are pretty clean. This is a busy hostel with people partying and working so be prepared to have people coming and going in a dorm room in the night and early morning.

Thanks for the awesome review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay here with us. In terms of the hostel being busy, that means a lot of people stay and love it here too! We do have a selection of rooms including smaller dorms and private rooms if you want to get out of the hustle and bustle of the bigger dorms, maybe treat yourself to one of those next time ;-) Come and see us again when in Auckland! Cheers The Attic Team

Best feature about this hostel is being right at the city centre. You have many attractions nearby. Hostel has friendly staff, good kitchen and a lovely outdoors area (right next to kitchen). My room was too cold, and no extra blanket or heater available, finding a hot shower (winter season) was hard, although toilet has a good size and only hostel I've seen with hairdryer, and I could hear noise from the streets in my room.

Great hostel, great location on Wellesley St. very near Queen St. Around the corner from restaurants, a good coffee shop, and Elliot Stables. The place is clean and comfortable. No lockers in the room, but plenty of small lockers down the hall. The staff also lets you store your bags in a locked room while you're out for the day. Three free hours of WiFi, plenty if you are out doing things instead of holed up in your room. Staff was friendly and helped with travel ideas and setting up tours.

plus: big supermarket nearby, staff helpful and friendly, you can book tours here, rooms spacious, free food shelf, great roof top terrace, 30 min of free internet, great Irish Pub right next door minus: no heating! (it was freezing in the rooms and bathrooms), no lockers, in the winter it was really quiet, reception closed midnight to 8am, so if you leave early make sure you get your key deposit back! internet really slow
