Was very impressed with Bamber from the moment I arrived. Clean and comfortable rooms, toilets/showers are well maintained and there were lots of common areas making it easy to meet other guests. They offer free wi-fi, there are lots of tips/posters/leaflets of things to see and do, also advising on free activities and things for a rainy day.
Auckland centre is a short bus ride away, easily accessible but far enough out from the noise in the evenings. You can walk up Mt Eden very easily as it is just up the road from Bamber House.
Great location, helpful staff and overall an enjoyable stay
