Really sociable hostel with a great big clean kitchen and a toasty machine! 3 common areas in addition to an outside deck area never makes this hostel feel cramped. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable and willing to help you with all your queries even if off duty. There is also 3 hours worth of free wifi. The only improvements would be to invest in some non-stick frying pans and have hot chocolate as an option with free tea and coffee.
The Internet provided is far too slow for a modern city with a very high per bed fee. Info given by staff for food was very expensive besides the grocery store.
A very nice hostel, certainly when compared to others in Auckland CBD. Nice feel, chilled out, relatively quiet, clean as well. English girl on reception had a bit of attitude, not massively helpful. Overall a good hostel and would definitely recommend.
Really good hostel. Great kitchen and social area. During our stay everyone was respectful of one another in the dorm, nice and quiet (perfect as we were very jet lagged). Location is great, only stopped here three nights but could have stopped for a week....so much to do in Auckland!

Ra's Alguhl, the intern, is the best. Excellent location. Only suggestion I have would be to organize more social evens (happy hour, bar crawl, clubs), which could be done in conjunction with other hostels if there's a low demand at the Attic.
You don't get a bed number. So you can choose your bed but the employees and the cleaning staff haven't an idea who is staying where and which bed to change etc. So in the morning around ten the cleaners get into the room and ask questions like: did this person leave,is this bed taken etc. And you don't have a clue because you don't know all the people in the room!The organisation is poor.
Good location on Queen Street. Close to bus station and bus for the airport. Kitchen is spacious and well equipped with lots of spices and condiments needed for cooking. Stayed in 6 and 10 bed dorms which were both bright and spacious. I liked that they had a hairdryer and straightner in the girls bathroom.
Clean, friendly, great location, knowledgeable staff. Overall a nice place to spend a few nights.
Really great hostel. Great location, very close to supermarket, bus stops and main shopping area. Staff were really helpful and friendly, especially Becca. Rooms are a great size with comfortable beds. The whole hostel is clean, spacious and modern with great facilities. Would recommend to anyone staying in Auckland and I would stay again.
Amazing place - spotlessly clean, great kitchen. There are a couple of indoor TV rooms and people also hang out in the cosy reception with beanbags, but best is an outdoor deck where it is easy to meet other travellers. Only gripe is that they close the deck at 11pm, but the indoor TV area is open 24 hours. You can drink your own booze in the hostel which is a plus. There are lockers provided for and separate male/female bathrooms. Unfortunately only 3 hours of (bad) free WiFi is provided.
Nice hostel, friendly staff, excellent location in CBD next to everything
Very clean hostel located in a great area. The staff weren't overly friendly or helpful. They didn't seem interested in helping when I asked for suggestions of what to do. Showers were a bit ridiculous going hot from cold all the time, but that's standard in most hostels. Beds are super comfy! There wasn't any atmosphere, but all up it's was a pretty good hostel. I would stay here again if I came back to Auckland.

This place is in an awesome location and has a super nice kitchen and rooftop terrace, ideal for meeting new people. My only complaints is having to pay for wifi and the slightly unfriendly staff who are quite cliquey and spend most of their time in their PJs
Amazing place, great staff and the cleanliness was by far the best I've seen. Whole place had a great vibe to it as well.
Really awesome place, great vibe and staff. Just a perfect size and you can't beat the location.
Central location good facilities great shower with hair dryer and straightners. Big kitchen. Staff were very friendly and helpful especially the guy on the travel desk! Would definatly recommend!
Hostel was in central location. Showers were good, didn't seem to have much atmosphere when I was there.
This was my third hostel I stayed at in Auckland and was by far the best and would definately stay here again. I stayed at Base and Frienz and would not stay at either again for various reasons. The facilities are excellent. Rooms get cleaned daily. Lovely clean kitchen and bathroom.
