The Red Monkey Travellers' Lodge
Reviewed 30 April 2013

After travelling around for a year, we stayed in this really nice house for 4 months while we were working. Teresa is really helpfull and welcoming.
Regular rooms are a bit small.
We stayed in room 1 for a month when we first arrived. Bigger bed and a lounge side (tv, table...).
We really felt like we were home.
The house is cleaned daily.
30 min away by foot from the city,10 min by bus (in front of the house)

We were looking for a budget place in central Auckland for a few weeks. We came across the Red Monkey who were offering a room-only with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities. We were met by the hosts, who are wonderful people, very friendly and welcoming. The room was small but comfortable, good cooking facilities and a great ambience around the outside area with all the guests. It is kept very clean and tidy and free wifi. Poison by is 5 minutes walk away. All in all, a great place for your money.

Room Tip: Our room was just inside front door so a bit noisy. Go for an upstairs or back room.

We found The Red Monkey Lodge to be clean, comfortable, affordable accommodation in a fabulous location. The hosts, Teresa and Clinton, are hospitable and caring and go out of their way to cater for their guests needs. We really enjoyed our stay and recommend it highly.

I stayed at The Redmonkey Lodge for two weeks on holiday and it was a great place to stay. It is kept really clean and the rooms are nice. It has a really relaxed atmosphere where everyone gets on well. Meal times are a great social occasion.
Ponsonby is a great location with heaps of cafes and bars. It is only a few minutes walk to Ponsonby road, where the public transport is very convenient. Teresa is very helpful. I totally recommend to other travellers who are budget concious as they have really good weekly rates.

I stayed at The Manor for two weeks & would have loved to stay longer!!! The Manor is a beautiful modern house. The rooms are so comfortable & the house has everything you could possibly need to feel right at home: Washing facilities, a BBQ, nice garden, clean modern well-stocked kitchen & dining area, a cosy TV room & free wifi & desktop computer use. It really was the best place I've ever stayed & I'll definitely be recommending it to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Auckland. As the previous person said the area of Ponsonby is packed with heaps of great cafes & restaurants & the convenience of the bus right outside the front door makes for super easy travel. Stephen is very friendly & the whole place is perfect if you ask me! If you're thinking about booking - DO IT! You won't regret it! Enjoy :)

Room Tip: All rooms are great! Some have views of the city, some of the garden & some face out onto Ponson...
