    I've been in five hostels in Auckland and I can say for sure that Hobson Lodge is the best in town. The beds are very confortable (the curtains give us some privacy), everything is very clean, the guests are respectful with others, the hostel is quite safe, and the staff is very kind and helpful.

    Great place to chill. Not a party vibe in the place. Good location close to center of the city. Great kitchen, showers and beds. Lovely place to stay and will return if I go back to Auckland.

    Clean hostel, in walking distance from downtown and the ferries. Very good value for your money! All beds have a light and plug, with a curtain for “privacy” which is nice. Not the most social hostel, but that worked well for me. They also have computers to use and bench seating to work at, plus lots of other seating outside the room. I would definitely stay here again!

    5-10 min walk away from the city centre. Incredibly clean with comfy beds. Would 100% stay here again if I returned to Auckland.

    Wouldn’t stay in any other hostel in Auckland. Bedrooms and bathrooms are kept very clean, extremely comfy mattresses, privacy curtain, very big kitchen - good for cooking own food, only a ten minute walk into the CBD. If you’re looking for a hostel to get your head down this is definitely the one, there’s no atmosphere as such - everyone is busy doing there own thing.

    My flight was cancelled so I needed to stay the night somewhere. Seemed like people had what they needed and chilled out in the lounge. I shared a room with 5 others guys I think, but I barely noticed them. Felt quite clean.

    Hostel is a little pricy, but overall clean. Atmosphere was good, but not the best for me. Overall a good hostel to stay at.

    It should have baskets and wall hangers for clothes in Common bathrooms. Found dirts in bathrooms floors and wet towels on hooks. Dryers $4 is quite high. And parking beside hostel is chargeable $15 which is not mentioned in the list. Room of female dormitory where we stayed was quite small and congested. Location is good near sky tower.

    It was okay, the bathroom was clean, the rooms were full of traveller’s/resident’s stuff. The metal bunk beds are the pits. But it serves its purpose and there are def worse hostels. And there are def better hostels. The one perk is the $15 NZD over nite parking.

    Overall it was a convenient place to stay in Auckland. The staff wasn't very social and even during check in only gave me the bare information to find my room. The bathroom are shared between genders which was fine but they were not clean. I was there for three days and they were not cleaned during that time. How could I tell in addition to the hair in the showers, dirty sinks and mirrors? There was consistently clothing left in the shower rooms or next to the sinks. It didn't feel clean at all.
