Great location. Great room. Friendly and helpful staff. (I would like to thank Pol at reception, he was very helpful! My partner got sick on arrival and Pol tried to do an early check-in for us, so kind, thanks a lot).

Clean and comfortable, conveniently located, friendly and helpful staff, has everything one needs. They have a good deal with the YMCA gym, which is about 100m up the street, one free day and then NZ$10 / day. You can walk all over the downtown area from this location.

We stayed at City Lodge twice during a recent trip to New Zealand. The rooms were spotlessly clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is very convenient and the central business district is an easy walk as are the Ponsonby Road and Karangahape Road commercial areas. There is a nice bakery just 100M north on Vincent Street where...

My parents and I had booked a triple room for 2 nights in this lodge. A week before our booking, I had contacted the reception as I wanted to arrange flowers and cake to be sent to our room before we arrived as we arrived on my mother's 62nd birthday. They replied very quickly and had taken care of everything...

We booked this for the last 2 nights of a 3 week stay in Auckland. For the price it was fantastic (when we compared prices this wasn't much more expensive than backpackers places and a lot cheaper than the big brand hotels which are all only 5 minutes walk away). We were on the 7th floor and didn't get much...

We had a room on the 8th floor, although quite a small room, it was very clean, had everything we needed and had the most fantastic view of the skyline and the Sky Tower. Although we didn't use the kitchen, it looked very clean and appeared to have lots of equipment for communal use. Really helpful, friendly staff. Excellent location,...

Good hostel, kitchen very clean, room small but good though a bit noisy as we had to keep windows open for ventilation (no air-con) and the occasional noises from the street were high even in the 8th floor.

Would stay again if down for the night. Small room. Very hot on 8th floor with no air conditioning. But had all we needed for 1 night. Shower head needs attention. Lots pressure but water goes everywhere.
