Indian management and hospitality , French gastronomy in small kitchens, Estonian liaisons with interesting sleeping positions, German man caves, and one crazy Irish man! The freemans hotel served up a non stop barrage of united nations shock and awe culture. There is a warmth to this hotel, that makes you feel like you belong in new zealand. Its a place...

Perfect Hostel if you are in Auckland! Relaxed and still really close to town and everything you need! Top for the price! Nice and friendly staff and great Wifi! Everything is clean and tidy and a nice garden area for chilling outside! #Rohitrocks

We stayed here 3 months and we really enjoyed, the manager 'john' takes care about everything you ask for. good bathrooms, rooms. little garden, free wifi ect... maybe kitchens are small for backpackers but we hadn't problems for cooking because it's was during winter.

A large garden to spend time and enjoying the sun. Fast, unlimited and free wifi ! I stayed 3 months with friends and nothing wrong !

I booked this and went to pay in advance... unfortunately after I paid for it, I realised the poor state of the property and tried many times to get in touch with the management to cancel the booking in advance, no reply.

I stayed at the Freemans Lodge for two weeks, and it was such a great experience. The staff was sweet and very helpfull with everything - every morning I was met with a smile. I would recomend it to all who loves to meet new people and live in a welcoming enviroment.

I spent two weeks here and I can't fault it, clean., great kitchen facilities and welcoming staff. It's a great chilled vibe here and probably one of the only places in the city with free unlimited wifi. Great location, I won't forget my stay here at Freedmans Lodge. All round amazing hostel would recommend to anyone coming to Auckland.
