Lonely Planet review

Occupying a character-filled, two-storey house built for Tongan royalty, this friendly and well-run backpackers has a lovely garden and high-ceilinged rooms. If you need to unwind, there's yoga on the front lawn.

Our independent authors have visited City Garden Lodge and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Auckland.

Description provided by property

We're located one district away from the noisy city centre. Why stay in concrete jungle when you can be surrounded by trees, lawns and birdlife? Best of all, you'll still be a five-minute walk from the best restaurants and cafes in the city.

We have free internet, with 200mb (two hours) of free Wi-Fi at check-in.

Check out our deals tab above for our special 25% off Winter Special deal!

Our very quiet and clean hostel features a fully equipped kitchen with lots of free herbs, spices and sometimes home cooking.

There's a log fire to heat the common areas and rooms have their own heating as well.

A 24-hour shuttle service to and from the airport is available.

It's no wonder we're consistently rated as one of Aucklands top hostels! We were rated the sixth-best hostel in New Zealand at the 2012 Hostelworld.com Hostel Awards and we've received excellent reviews in Lonely Planet, Hostel World, Trip Advisor and Rough Guide.

Check-in time around 11am but if you arrive early you are welcome to free coffee and tea while you wait in our comfortable lounge or relax in the hammock on the sunny veranda.

Sorry but out of consideration for other guests we are not suitable for children.
