The only downside is the lift - it is a manual lift controlled by 2 doors and so often people had not closed one of the doors. When you have a lot of luggage and you are faced with that many stairs it could be a real nightmare. I had to walk up once with no luggage and you would not be able to do it with 3 bags weighing a total of 35kg!!!!!!!!!!!
Good location if you want to hang out in the centre of Auckland (although there's not much to do!). Staff were very nonchalant and didn't really put any effort into customer service. Good security. Hostel itself feels very 'clinical' - barely any character. You might think that would make it a clean place, but the male bathrooms were pretty shoddily cleaned. Wifi and kitchen are great. All in all: a good place to stay if you're in a hurry, but don't bother if you're looking for a homely hostel.
Great place. I've stayed at Base Auckland and the Brown Kiwi and the Attic is better than both! This is a quieter, more friendly atmosphere with a great location, and everyone I met was super nice. They also have the nicest bathrooms and showers of any hostel I've stayed in around the world (well over 10). Also, the elevator is cool and the rooftop patio is pretty nifty.

After spending 3 weeks in a campervan Attic backpackers was just what I needed. It was friendly, homely and clean. Great value for money!
We found it a pleasant place to stay at the end of our month-long campervan trip around NZ. The highlight is that it's right in the middle of downtown, near lots of restaurants, and walking distance to most of the not terribly many things to do in Auckland. Highly recommend getting out and seeing the rest of NZ too.
nice staff and very helpful on tour booking for me even at night time. paid wifi work not very well.
Perfect location just off queens st. Great staff and really clean throughout, the kitchen is big and tidy and the outdoor terrace and tv rooms are really good for socialising. I would definitely stay here if I was in Auckland again. The only thing was that it gets really hot at night but you get the street noise if you open the windows. Also the wifi I thought was too expensive (20$) 3 days.
Probably the best hostel I stayed in, in Nee Zealand! The staff are super friendly and happy to answer any questions. The kitchen is nice and big and clean and the same with the rooms. The old style lift into the building is super cool not annoying like others have said.
We really appreciated this centrally located hostel. The staff was really great at welcoming us and giving us an overview of Auckland. Accommodations were simple and clean, definitely appreciated the privacy from a twin. The only feedback would be to install some racking in the shower cabins to hold toiletries. That would be really helpful and appreciated! Overall solid hostel ;)
We stayed only 1 night in a dorm. It was big enough and the common areas and kitchen are big as well. The best is the location and the price, it's a good value in the downtown.
Dorms were pretty spacious, kitchen was big enough, not a huge amount of common space. Would have been a great stay if the bathrooms were cleaner, they were pretty filthy. Good location in the CBD, need a code to get through both doors at night. The elevator is ancient and can be a nuisance.
Only issue was the wifi was slow for how expensive it was
Very clean and nice. I like them kitchen very much. Is best choice for me, but wifi just 3hour only whatever we stay how many day.
Outstanding hostel. Free 3 hours of internet
Nicest hostel in Aucklands CBD :)
Really nice hostel, great atmosphere, really clean and friendly staff wifi is a bit expensive though, but you have 3hours for free
This hostel was great. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and pottery you might need. The atmosphere was inviting, relaxed, and welcoming. The staff was amazingly helpful and real easy to talk to. They focused their attention on helping you out. The rooms and bathroom were clean and spacious. Location was in the heart of Auckland. Close to everything.
Hidden treasure in Auckland. Very clean and organized hostel; rooms are large and comfortable, and quite silent. There is a locker room with camera, laundry room, a big kitchen, TV and leisure rooms and a terrace. It's located in the back of a building, so there is very little street noise coming. It's a few blocks away from SkyTower and just beside Queen St. Internet included, but breakfast not. Bathroom and showers located in a large piece. Highly recommended!
very nice stay- love this place
