Friendly and welcoming hostel, with so much character. Great place to relax and meet like minded people. A huge kitchen and lounge area and beautiful garden to enjoy in the summer. The hostel is clean and feels so safe. Thanks for a wonderful stay! I'll be back.

Unusual and characterful hostel split between two buildings. Though this may seem awkward, it means that dorms are insulated from noise while the extensive social areas have an unrestricted and warm atmosphere. The hostel is perfectly situated for Ponsonby but far from the city centre. Don't miss views from the upper verandah on a clear day.

Firstly - FREE WIFI!!!!! (Quite the rarity in NZ for some reason). Secondly - this place makes you feel like you temporarily live in a mansion from Gone with the Wind! Beautiful big old building. Comfy beds (no bunks! .. in my dorm anyway) Beautiful big kitchen and lounge. Huge park/garden and ponsonby (great spot for shops and restaurants) closeby. 10 minute walk from the rest of the city. The fella on reception lovely and helpful but hard to track down at times. Overall great.

One of the best hostels in Auckland. The beds are really comfortable and not a bunk bed in sight in the four bed dorms. Location is good as it's near Ponsonby Road. A good atmosphere here and very nice staff. Wifi is not free though.

Very posh hostel, ambience is excellent, location is mediocre, way better than most motel in North America. Negative: paid WiFi, less probability of meeting friends and no reception at night
