We booked a standard double room (8th floor). The room was very clean, small but had all the basics. Perfect for a short stay. There was a quite bit of road noise, but didn't worry us. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Not much parking, but were recommended reasonable parking just around the corner. Great location and budget friendly....

City Lodge was our first stop in NZ after touching down from our 20+ hour travel from the US. We got there around 9am and by chance our rooms were already cleaned and good to go for check in. The room had a comfy bed, 2 nightstands, nice bathroom, plenty of sockets for charging, a fridge, a desk fan, and...

Great value for the quality of the facilities, room, service and most importantly, location. A little noisy (outside noise) and no air conditioning, otherwise very good. Could very well be Auckland's best kept accommodation secret.

very clean and tidy lodge. Very comfortable especially for elderly couples, fairly cheap and in central AKL. Max 15 minutes to foot of Queen street. Extremely supportive staff and very cheap taxi service available too.

Wouldn't even really like to call this a hostel, I stayed here for three nights in a private room and it was excellent. Slightly more expensive than other hostels but for the hotel prices in Auckland you can't complain. The staff are really friendly, the rooms are clean and comfy and all of the facilities are great. Hands down the...
