Ponsonby Backpackers is without doubt the best hostel I have stayed at both in New Zealand and abroad.
John, Holly, and all the staff are awesome - very friendly and go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay.
I've stayed in a few rooms during my time with them and all are clean and comfy. The kitchen is huge and well equipped and is always kept clean and tidy and an added bonus is the large outdoor area ideal for lazy days in the sun.
Much more friendly and sociable than other big hostels in Auckland. It really has become like a second home to me and I'm already not looking forward to leaving!
Would not stay anywhere else in Auckland - this place is the best!
