Property Description

Oaklands Lodge is ideally situated in the heart of Mount Eden village, which plays host to a range of cafes, restaurants and bars. This quiet yet charming neighbourhood also boasts the beautiful attraction of Mount Eden itself where visitors can take in views of the whole city from above.

For those who wish to explore the city we are just a short 15 minute bus ride which costs only $3.50.

Our large Victorian lodge is a quiet and relaxing home away from home and we are certainly not a party hostel. However, we do encourage guests to be interactive and make the most of their experience in Auckland. We offer a range of laid back activities for guests to get involved with including shared meals, movie nights, and quiz evenings. We also run regular activities with our sister hostel Bamber House such as BBQ's, Laser tag, and sports matches.

Oaklands Lodge is now offering free and unlimited WIFI!. Oaklands guests are also able to benefit from towel hire, fresh linen, and extra pillows and blankets.

Our office is open from 8.00am -1.00pm and 2.00pm to 8.00pm. If you will be arriving after 8.00pm please email us so we can send you our late check in instructions. Our normal check in time is from 2pm but if you are arriving earlier than that we will do our best to have your room ready as quickly as possible. View House Rules

    One of my favourite hostels, ever. Ian and Brenda are absolutely lovely hosts, the location is great in Mt Eden Village (just a stone throw away from great restaurants and cafes and easily accessible by the CBD via bus), and the communal environment at the hostel is the best. I would highly recommend!

    Everyone here was super friendly, really easy to extend my stay. The dorms were basic but with everything you need, and the beds were definitely comfy. Everything seemed clean. Large kitchen with everything you might need, cosy living room. Really good location right by mount Eden, and cheap quick bus to get most places!

    Generally the stay was pretty average. Reception closes between 1-2 for lunch, but when I arrived the note in the door said they would return at 3pm, but didn’t show up until 3:30 pm so I had to wait around without wifi for an hour wondering when they would show up. Same sort of scenario happened to another lady around 10am. Facilities were nice and clean, although lots of flys in the kitchen. The location was amazing and free parking on he street was nice.

    Our stay was short but lovely! It was a little noisy at times but I think that's to be expected with an old building. Nice area, very friendly owners!

    All round very good hostel. Kitchen facilities were the best ever at a hostel. Staff were very helpful and the living area was great. Rooms were a little crowded and not enough plugs available. Rooms was also too hot. Overall very good.
