Frienz.com Backpackers Accommodation Auckland
Lonely Planet review
Raising the bar for this part of town, Frienz has actually put an effort into its decor (crazy wallpaper and bright colours) and into organising regular social events (free barbecue nights, poker tournaments etc). Add to that free internet access, fridges in the private rooms and a terrific rooftop terrace and you get the inner city’s best hostel.
