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.

    This hostel is one of the best I've stayed in. I ended up staying here for about 5 months while working in Auckland. Ian and Brenda are amazing, lovely people who care about the hostel and their guests. The beds are comfy and clean. The kitchen is clean and a good size. There is a nice garden area and lounge area with an abundance of movies to watch, books to read and games to play. Great atmosphere. Sometimes I forgot I was staying in a hostel.

    I loved my stay at Oakland’s lodge, it was just my type of hostel. It has a great culture around it and was the perfect way to enter into Auckland. I chose this hostel mainly for the late check in which was so convenient for coming from the airport late at night. Ian was great and had a nice vibe about him, If I would want to stay longer term in Auckland I’d consider this hostel. Only downside was that there’s no where to store your luggage in the big room so everyone’s stuff is strewn about.

    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!

    Arrived after reception closed, left before reception opened. That being said, they made it easy to collect and deposit key. A few miles from Auckland's "party district" but seemed like it had a good crowd of mostly working holiday visa folks staying there. They seemed like they knew about fun stuff to head to in the evenings. Parking was easy and the kitchen was stocked with a lot of communal spices.
