Stayed only one night. Clean room. Clean bathrooms. Comfy bed. Great outdoor space. Well equipped kitchen. Note: steep stairs to get to ground floor kitchen. Uber picks up from there. Restaurants, bars, and shopping close by.

Verandahs Backpackers. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms and kitchen were clean, and the staff were amazing! We’d booked a small double room and upon check in asked if any twin rooms were available. They were not. Then later, staff member Loraine found us to tell us there

Enjoyed a very pleasant stay in Verandahs. Rooms are comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. I will certainly recommend my friends to stay here when in Auckland. The location is great. It is walking distance to the city centre, and also very close to Countdown supermarket a

Hi can someone please tell me the best way to get here from the airport. Thanks
I usually get the shuttle bus or taxi but there is also a bus which takes you to K Road, a short walk from the Backpackers, about $14 or$18 if I recall correctly. Suggest you contact Verandahs and ask them of your options, I have just come from Auckland a few hours ago and paid $35 for a taxi, organised by backpackers. Independently would have been a hell of a lot more, vicinity of $60. Shuttle is about $38. As always love the quietness and great location of this hostel, the inner bus route (green) which is a couple of minutes walk easy to get round on. Enjoy your holiday.

The double beds, are they queens? Or are they smaller?
I reckon it's a double bed. To be fair I didn't really notice...

"All good having stayed in single and double rooms"
"double corner room was light filled, and looked out over the park"
"I'd imagine all north and east facing rooms are quiet, like the one I was in, but hostel seems to be in a quiet location."
"Even in winter the hostel is fully booked so book a room in time."
"Book asap :) Any room is fine, preferably less beds and towards the park ;)"
