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.

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.

Good, clean hotel. Great location. Great staff. It's a good place to stay regardless of if you want to party or if you need to get some sleep.

I stayed at the attic for four nights! Staff was very friendly, the location was great! I stayed at a mixed 10 bed dorm which made it very easy to meet new people. Highly recommend to stay there if you are in Auckland!

Really friendly, helpful staff. They gave great advice for things to do in Aukland and Waihike Island. We only stayed one night but would have liked to stay longer!

Great place. Only comment is that most people there are long-term. Thus, a different mind set. Great place though.

Thanks for spending the time to leave us a review, we are pleased you enjoyed yourself! We do have a few people in long term at the moment, mainly due to winter! They are a great bunch and add to the atmosphere! Come and see us again when you are back in Auckland! Cheers The Attic Team

Best location ever and really clean facilities. The staff was helpful, but not especially friendly... so not a complaint from my side really. Would not consider other hostels if I needed to stay in Auckland again!

Very helpful staff. No heaters in room so it is cold in the winter.

Probably the best hostel in Auckland. A lot of long stayers at the hostel who take over the kitchen but they're nice if you make an effort with them

The hostel is in a convenient location just off Queen Street, so close to Auckland's main attractions. We stayed in a twin room which was pretty simple but had everything we needed. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely come here again.

My sister and I stayed in three different hostels within a week. The Attic Backpackers was by far our favorite. The staff members were so incredibly helpful! The room was clean and the bathroom had tons of space. We were very pleased with our stay at The Attic :) Oh and Roll Tide!

Thanks for taking the time to leave us your valued feedback. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed our great locality and well equipped kitchen. We do actively promote various activities and events throughout the week and host our own events for guests to partake. During your stay would've been when we were promoting the weekly bar crawl which happens every Thursday ;-) Hopefully you will join us next time! :-) Cheers The Attic Team
