Loved our two days stay! This hostel is nice and cozy, has a large kitchen full of all you need to cook (utensils and condiments), enough fridge and cubby space for your food and lots of little nooks to spare some time outside of your room both outside and inside. We started our trip in NZ at the Oakland Lodge and decided to go back again for our last days in Auckland.

The lodge is friendly, clean, and provides all the facilities. It is just at the base of Mount Eden with a direct bus to the city. After check out you can stay in the living room. The borough is calm and chic.

Friendly staff and a nice vibe. Guests were sociable, and there is a nice back garden. Just steps away from Mount Eden on one side and a number of cafes and bars on the other. Would definitely return.
