I usually get the shuttle bus or taxi but there is also a bus which takes you to K Road, a short walk from the Backpackers, about $14 or$18 if I recall correctly. Suggest you contact Verandahs and ask them of your options, I have just come from Auckland a few hours ago and paid $35 for a taxi, organised by backpackers. Independently would have been a hell of a lot more, vicinity of $60. Shuttle is about $38.
As always love the quietness and great location of this hostel, the inner bus route (green) which is a couple of minutes walk easy to get round on.
Enjoy your holiday.
