Lovely staff, lovely place and a really friendly atmosphere. My husband and I stayed in a double room with ensuite bathroom. Although the walls between rooms were very thin, we slept well each night. The communal areas were good, as was the kitchen and the hostel is very conscientious about recycling and the environment which was lovely to see. Thank...

I stayed here for only one night and liked it a lot. I arrived very early in the morning and could access the common areas easily with a key code I received via email. The bed (dorm) was comfy and all shared spaces were clean and well maintained. What I loved most was the garden and veranda. Sunbathing and relaxing...

We stayed here just one night before flying out of Auckland the next day. We'd booked a deluxe double with ensuite. The room was a cabin out back and smelled strongly of damp so we kept the window open all night. It was clean but the sheets were stained and towels sweaty smelling. Shower was strong and hot though. The...

This is definitely the best hostel in New Zealand and I absolutely loved it! The Bamber House feels like home and people keep extending their stay here all the time. The hostel is clean, big lounge areas and garden, helpful and friendly staff (heads up for Branson, who was very helpful). I've stayed in hundreds of hostels in my life...

Everything was fine - beds, wifi, kitchen, showers etc. I enjoyed my stay and met some lovely people. You could walk to the City Center, it was easy to find. Easy to find if you're arriving from the airport.

I previously stayed twice at Pentlands backpackers down the road in Mt. Eden but since they were no longer around and I was coming from (via a 2 week road trip with Intercity from Queenstown) the UK, I thought I better pick a place around Auckland that I knew best...and I sure know Mount Eden village. The place itself is...
