Our room was clean, tidy and well aired. It has been a while since I have stayed in accommodation with shared bathrooms but I had nothing to worry about, they were very clean, private and there seemed to be plenty. The kitchen and lounge facilities were excellent and the location premium. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. We were...

What a lovely place in a gorgeous building. Lovely room, decent linen, towel, soaps etc Wonderful, mostly, kitchen, with multiple gas ring points, and electric ovens too (but could do with more plates and mugs. A family group used almost all the plates at a single sitting and sat with them all evening. Bigger mugs too please). Plenty of fridge...

The location of this backpackers and the quality of the rooms, beds and kitchen make Verandahs the top pick of Auckland backpackers. Beds are very comfortable, with good quality sheets, duvets and extra blankets. The kitchen is huge and has every thin you could want, including sharp knives. The location is brilliant, overlooking Western Park and right on the door...

Rooms have high ceilings and comfy beds, spacious communal kitchen and several lounge areas to relax in. Location is nice - close to the bars/pubs on K'Rd and Ponsonby,...

The hostel is very well furnished, clean and quite . The area around it is so nice . Wonderful view from the windows. 10 mins walk to Queen Street. I've travelled all around NZ and Verandahs is one of the best!

This is one of the most spacious and beautiful hostels I've ever stayed at. It's just outside of the city center, but close to some of the nightlife areas. Fun and helpful staff, occasionally even making you feel like a special guest.

I had a fabulous stay. Such a charming old building with modern, clean facilities. Verandahs is so close to all things central Auckland, it's so easy to get around the central city. Great staff too. I'll definitely be back.
