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.

    Great location and near the city center and the wharf. Basic rooms and amenities that you’d expect. You can’t expect too much from a hostel but the front desk were extremely nice and accommodating. They don’t have someone 24/7 at the reception desk but we didn’t have to wait too long for them to open. They accommodated us much earlier than expected and even willing to hold our luggages until our room was ready. They were awesome! Thanks for a great stay

    The hostel is in a great location right in the heart of downtown and just around the corner from the bus station. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the heater in my room did a good job of warming the space. The bathroom was tidy and dry. The kitchen was spacious and well equiped with lots of room to store food, cook it and eat it. The atosphere was laid back unfortunately the internet was down during my stay but other than that it was a good option for a busy city.

    Gets the job done. The atmosphere left a bit to be desired. Not super social. Fine place though. Maybe not my first pick.
