Lonely Planet review
The interiors don’t live up to the imposing exterior of this turreted wooden villa, commanding a corner site on tree-lined Franklin Rd. Yet it’s kept reasonably clean and its superbly located.
Our independent authors have visited Ponsonby Backpackers and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Auckland.
