The Attic Backpackers is on the top floor of our building (hence the name!), and we're a clean and contemporary backpackers' sanctuary in the heart of Auckland. We put a lot of effort into creating an inviting, laid-back and sociable environment, setting up a big covered deck with a dining area. You'll find an indoor communal kitchen, too, a fave spot for guests to gather. We also have a travel desk to help you plan your circuit around New Zealand – we'll get you booked on trips to magical places like Hobbiton from Lord of the Rings.


We're one road over from the SkyWalk tower for 360-degree panoramas of Auckland. You can even bungee jump off it for some white-knuckle thrills! We're around the corner from Queen Street in the Central Business District, so it's easy to get here from Auckland Airport. Jump on the Skybus at Stop 9 and you'll be whisked from the main terminal to our neighbourhood in about 40 minutes. We're right next door to Little Mexico restaurant – just take the elevator to the top for check-in.

Rooms and Dorms

Choose from private rooms and mixed or female-only dorms with shared bathrooms. The women's bathrooms have hairdryers and straighteners – ideal for nights out in the Britomart area. When you come in to crash, you'll find free linen and a locker to pop your stuff in. There's free Wi-Fi, too, so you can get uploading those #wanderlust posts after a weekend snapping the mesmerising thermal pools in Rotorua.

Extras and activities

Just finished a page-turner? Swap it for another at our book exchange, or flick through the Sky TV channels in the common room. Our laundry facilities will come in handy if we're your last stop after a camping trip around the North Island, and we have towels to hire at reception for that hot shower you've been waiting for.

    Had a great stay here, had some issues with V. Loud snorers in my room but that isn’t the hostels fault. Very good location, amazing vibe and amazing staff. Got to NZ and within one hour of arriving at the hostel, I had already made friends in my dorm. Bathrooms are clean and well maintained, really appreciated having a shower cubical with a door and then a separate part to get changed etc. This would have been the best stay ever, if only there had been no snorers, which is unavoidable...

    Great time staying at Attic Backpackers for a few nights. It's a great location - grocery store less than 5 min walk. The kitchen is big and well stocked and the bathrooms are spacious and clean. Met lots of great people over the couple of days. There isn't much hostel driven activities so meeting people is in your hands. Highly reccomend if you're staying in Auckland.

    Arriving for my first time in New Zealand and Attic was my first stop. It’s perfectly situated and all the facilities were super clean. The staff were friendly and always on hand to help. There was a large array of brouchers and leaflets for things to do in the area, which was very helpful.

    Stayed here for three nights in total, one in a dorm and two in a private room. Location was perfect, especially for getting the bus to and from the airport (and father teds Irish bar next door!) Facilities are good, kitchen was large and clean and the outside terrace is nice to eat breakfast on. No complaints.

    There are no lockers in the rooms even though there really is enough space in them. The rooms are quite dark and depressing, big but empty. The location is good, but I think it is overrated.

    The rooms were much darker than on the photos and we were disappointed. Also the rooms smelt very bad as we were not able to open the windows or curtains. Wi-Fi didn't connect either. But good location!
