Although brief my stay was enjoyable. The facilities where clean and tidy, the staff where all friendly and everyone I meet had an awesome vibes and I felt comfortable and welcome the whole of my stay.
Had a two night stay, overall it was a great stay. The storage units under the bed's are a great place to lock away your belongings, make sure you bring your own lock. The room was massive, the staff were kind and the location perfect!
We only stayed for one night but in general it was a pretty good stay! :) We arrived like 8am and eventhough our room of course wasn't ready, they let us leave our backpacks in a closet...and it was one of the mayor let-downs. The room was FILTHY! It really didn't appear to have been cleaned in FOREVER! Garbage, bottles, snacks, everything just lying around on the carpet! The hostel is a lot like a laberinth, very narrow hallways but the room was HUGE with a big space in the middle where you can pack or do stuff without bothering others. There was only one fan, luckily was not that hot but I can imagine it must be horrible with summer in full blast. You have outlets and a privacy courtain in your bed which is awesome! The staff is kind and the location is amazing! Right in the middle of K Street, which is the epicenter of bars, restaurants and shops. The only downside is that is uphill and pretty far up. We did not use the kitchen but seem pretty big and complete. In the closets you can fit your entire backpack wich is nice! Overall a good experience, I would be back if in Auckland again :)…
Haka lodge is located in one of the coolest streets in Auckland: K-road. It's colorful and full of interesting shops and cool cafes, I personally loved the vibe there. The hostel has a great cozy common area and provides everything you need for when backpacking. I really liked the fact that the beds have their own curtains so you can have a lot of privacy as well. Furthermore I want to say a big thank you to all of the staff there because they were able to help me during a difficult time for me in Auckland. I highly recommend this hostel for your stay in the city!
Excellent hostel close to the main street of Auckland and to buses for visitimg the whole city. Really helpful staff. Many eating possibilities close by. The room and the facilities were clean and the hostel is secured
