Lonely Planet review
The original house here is a mansion of sorts, with some nicely maintained period trimmings and large grounds. The new prefab cabins have less character but come with en suites.
Our independent authors have visited Bamber House and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Auckland.

Description provided by property
Bamber House is a beautiful colonial lodge situated in the peaceful and leafy suburb of Mt Eden, Auckland, just a short bus ride or a 30 minute walk into town.
We are perfectly located if you want to mix it with the locals with a good choice of popular cafes, bars and shops and a large supermarket just a short walk away. We are ideal for those travellers searching for the chilled out New Zealand experience away from the big city but close enough to enjoy the town's attractions when it suits. Car parking in the city can be really expensive so our free off street car parking is a big advantage if you have a car. If you want to be right downtown this is not the place for you.
We have beautiful parks and Mt Eden itself on our doorstep affording panoramic views of the entire city and providing excellent opportunities to enjoy the outdoors.
Our friendly hostel has a choice of dorms and private rooms in addition to clean and spacious communal areas, a log fire and a beautiful big garden. We can accommodate guests from the age of 10 upwards although only those aged 18 and over can be booked into our share rooms.
Our experienced staff are at hand to offer the best advice on travel itineraries around New Zealand and can book you onto any activities and excursions at short notice as well as arranging hire cars at great rates.
We regularly provide activities within the hostel to keep you entertained and ensure you have every opportunity to meet your fellow travellers. We offer a range of activities in our comfortable lounge area and frequently arrange trips into the city to try out a few bars and clubs, ten pin bowling or catching the latest blockbuster at the cinema. We also have all the usual board games and a book exchange.
Our check-in time is from 2pm although if your room is available we will check you in when you arrive or as soon as the room becomes available, we contact all bookings with helpful tips on the best way to reach us. Each guest also receives 200mb of free wifi on arrival. We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful home soon!
