Great little hostel. Good location between CBD and Personby. Friendly staff. Clean. The rules aren't stringent, like other hostels, just common courtesy rules. The wifi is free and unlimited. If you want a quiet friendly hostel near Auckland CBD, at a good price with free wifi, Freemans Lodge is the place to stay!

Our room was freezing and...

We had a nice three nights at Freemans, the management was most helpful and always greeted us with a smile and answered any of our questions. If we come back to Auckland we will surely stay here again, it is just right for the price.

I stayed for one month and half there, and spent so lovely time! Staffs and guests are friendly and kind, and everywhere it's clean. It was first time for me to stay at backpackers, but there was like my home and family :) Thank you for everything!!

Spent couple of nights here with my family. We found the staff very friendly and helpful, who offered us some good suggestions on what we could see around. We found the lodge quite clean and well maintained. Kitchen was spacious with plenty of storage room. Will definitely suggest this place to anyone visiting Auckland.

Nice place to stay in NZ. I like so much here because it is close principal places in Auckland, mainly the school to our daughter, and the staff are very helpful. The facilities of this lodge are other important and essential detail.
