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.

Please be aware that we do not accept guests under the age of 18. We reserve the right to refuse accommodation under these circumstances.

Please note that we have a 3% surcharge on credit cards and international debit cards, you will have the opportunity to pay in cash if you wish to avoid this surcharge.

A valid form of ID must be shown upon check in.

    A good place to stay in. There were a lot of people staying there but it wasn't very noisy. The place is cosy and small. The bathroom was clean and sufficient.

    Overall a great stay. We’ll actually be heading back there before we fly out of Auckland. Great place to unwind, beds were good, and the location ended up being really nice too. Just wish there was a fan in the room as it gets muggy on a sunny day (it was perfect the next day which was cloudy).

    Say what you want mate. Its called customer service. The fact is you didn't verbally tell me a check out time. Nor was I given any insight to the area. No ID check either upon arrival. I've travelled around the world and this is standard upon arrival. I don't need to be told to leave the premise 3 times within such a short period. Again customer service. Let me pack my bag. It was a really funny joke.
