Location was amazing and so was the staff. Bathrooms were always clean and the kitchen was nice and spacious. Also the roof terrace is a pretty cool spot to hangout and meet new people! Staff will help you plan out basically anything you want to do in Auckland and its close tourist attractions, just ask them

Hi, Thanks for taking your time to leave a review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us here at The Attic. We are very lucky to have such a central location which is ideal for backpackers wanting to get out and explore Auckland and everything it has to offer. The roof terrace is real cool as you can bring your own drink to our hostel and you can smoke out there so its an awesome place to socialize and meet new people. We hope you come back one day :) The Attic team :)

The team at TAB was really awesome. Hannah was super friendly when I arrived early in the morning and James was able to help out with my vast range of questions regarding buses, cars, vans, and beyond. Really great spot, definitely stay here if you can.

Hi, Thanks for taking your time to leave us a review. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. Sorry to start by busting your bubble but we don't have anyone working here called Hannah but all of our staff are super friendly and happy to help with anything. James is a very valuable member of staff here and we are very lucky to have him as he is very knowledgeable about New Zealand and everything else. We hope you stay with us again :) The Attic team :)

Great hostel. Great location in the middle of the city, lots of atmosphere, great outdoor and indoor areas to hang out. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms and facilities tidy and easy to access. Loved my stay here, if I went back to Auckland I'd definitely stay there again.

I have stayed in multiple hostels in Auckland, and The Attic beats them all! Great central location. Rooms are clean and spacious with plenty of power points. Staff is super friendly and helpful. The kitchen is lovely with plenty of space for food storage. There's even a nice deck out back. The toilets are the best I've encountered, with tons of counter space! Only drawback is that the bunk beds are short, so you can't really sit up in the bottom bunk. Regardless, I highly recommend The Attic!

A really nice welcome from reception staff, very helpful and humorous. Nice to have a bit of banter after a long flight. Security is excellent - keys and codes to get in. Central location. Good atmosphere and clean rooms. What more could you ask for?

Stayed one night on the way out of NZ. Hostel seemed well located in the city and the staff were friendly and helpful. The twin private room was very basic but fine for a night. WiFi was limited but it did work well and the toilets and showers were clean.

Hi, Thanks for taking your time to leave us a review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay here at The Attic. The WIFI is limited but only to how much you buy. On check in you get 3 hours free and then you can come buy more with very reasonable prices which is on time not data. Hope you come back to us if your ever back over this way :) The Attic team :)

The staff was very nice and cooked a Christmas brunchbrunch forfor us on Christmas day. Lots of social activities. Some other guests were a bit rude to the staff but they handled it well.

I really liked the Attic Backpacker. Clean showers and toilettes, but I never had a warm/hot shower. It always changed from warm to cold. I don't know why it kept doing this...? :D The kitchen was clean and had plenty of cooking utensils. The beds were comfy and the staff was always there to help you. Can definitely recommend this hostel! I've met awesome people there.

One of the best backpackers' that I've stayed in! Staff are friendly and very helpful and the view is awesome here as well. If there was unlimited free wifi then it would be even better!

Very large facilities considering its in the CBD where you'd expect everything to be tiny. Location is about as good as it gets (2 minutes to central shopping street). Very clean. Also most amazing staff in New Zealand. Overall - would recommend and definitely go there again.

Location is very good, close to the shuttle bus from/to the airport, restaurants and things to do. There was a hair straightener and blowdryer in the bathroom which was nice. The only thing is the lockers are small and in a separate room so it's a bit inconvenient at times. Wifi has a limit of 3 hours but buying extra time is pretty cheap.

Hi, Thanks for taking your time to leave us a review. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us here at The Attic. We are happy that you appreciate our central location as it's very handy to go and check out all the things that Auckland has to offer which is never to far away. We do have a locker room and they are for valuables we do also have a baggage room for larger items. Hope you stay with us again :) The Attic team :)

The hostel was in an amazing location and because it was several stories up in the building, it was relatively removed from street noise. The bathroom was so clean, and very spacious and never felt damp or anything like that. The beds were actually really comfortable. I found the staff weren't overly enthusiastic or friendly, and you only get several hours of free wifi, and then after that you have to pay which is a bit old school.... also it was $12 to hire a towel. CRAZY. Good overall.

Hi thanks for taking time to leave us a review, We are happy to hear you enjoyed our awesome central location. Always happy to hear that you found our bathrooms to be clean and spacious and our bed really comfortable. Sorry to hear the staff weren't to enthusiastic as this is not normal standards, as you can read in previous reviews. It is $12 to hire a towel from us but you do get your $10 back when you return it. Enjoy the rest of your travels The Attic Team :)
