I stayed in red monkeys the most time of january. It's a nice, clean place with cool people. Perfect for backpacker. It's near to ponsonby rd. - preetiest street in auckland and cool nightlife (remembers me Little bit to parts of London). Prefer it more than the center of auckland!

To be honest I think there are better locations and better priced rooms available in Parnell or Newmarket which have more happening than Ponsonby. It's a very expensive area even just to get a bite to eat or a drink. Better value in CBD. Wooden house where you can hear every door slam and everyone walk up and down the... More

There was a slight mix up on my arrival but Teresa (who looks after the house) came straight away when I called and prepared my room for me. The room itself was great for my... More

We stayed in room 1 for a month when we first arrived. Bigger bed and a lounge side (tv, table...). We really felt like we were home. The... More

We were looking for a budget place in central Auckland for a few weeks. We came across the Red Monkey who were offering a room-only with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities. We were met by the hosts, who are wonderful people, very friendly and welcoming. The room was small but comfortable, good cooking facilities and a great ambience around the... More
