“Nice & clean place; strategically located”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2013

Sorry I should have made the review months ago. Glad I stayed at this place after arriving in Auckland and before continuing to Rotorua (1 night) since they had everything I needed: towel, clean bathroom, PC & internet. Kitchen/dining area was functional though may not be the coziest. It's close to everywhere. My single room consist of a bunk bed (comfortable enough) with a dressing table, but the AC got a bit too cold for me at night (I slept with sweater on). Perhaps one additional point was about the surrounding area (K Street) which looked like a bit deserted after dark; but I felt safe. Reception is one floor up from the building entrance. Overall it was a really nice place and I highly recommend it esp. for solo female traveler.

I recently stayed at the Newton Lodge and would highly recommend a stay there. Newton Lodge offers value for money, as well as a clean and safe place to stay in Auckland. The rooms were clean, showers were powerful and no problem was too much problem for the staff behind the desk, I also felt safe as a single women. Thank you for my stay.

I was there for 8 nights and it was a good decision. Free Wifi and enough showers. The washing machine and the dryer cost 3$ each. The hostel is near to the CBD. Just 2 points I didn't like: they don't really change the towels in the kitchen. They are always smelly and there isn't the typical friendly atmosphere in the hostel.

Beds were some of the most comfortable I've had in a dorm room. Everyone gets to use a locker for free. It can fit a small backpack inside of it. There are a few tables and a couch in the common area but the actual cooking area is a bit small. I never had to wait for a bathroom or shower. There were no windows in the door room but there were sun roofs that let light in. Free wifi is nice and printing is cheap. You have to walk down and up a hill to get to and from the city center. I'd recommend it.

This was our first hostel in new zealand. It was very clean, plenty of showers and toilets never had to wait. Kitchen facilities were spot on everything you needed but the kitchen was a little small. The rooms were good size and beds were comfy they had plugs beside every bed top and bottom which is rare. 15 to 20 min walk to the harbour 10mins to sky tower and main shops. Free wifi which is in most hostels in new zealand. All in all great hostel

The hostel is the best I know in Auckland. Very new, comfortable and clean. The standard dorm room I stayed in, has no windows. But that isn't such a pity as they use a special daylight technology that you won't really realize that fact. The beds are very comfortable. They also offer free internet access over WIFI as well as over their provided, very new, PC's. The showers are maybe also one of the best hostel showers in whole New Zealand. The TV is very new and the seats in front of it are very cosy. All in all close to hotel standards.
Things I don't like about the hostel is the too small kitchen without any oven (just two pairs of hot plates), as well as the remote location to the Auckland CBD.

New hostel, which is very clean and has great toilets and showers. the room was well laid out and we each had our own locker to fit personal things in. We stayed in an 8 bed dorm and we didn't feel cramped at all. Only downfall was the kitchen. It was tiny. The tv was also in the kitchen which meant when you wanted to watch a film (a group of us watched The Holiday0 it was really noisy so very hard to hear it. Overall its a good hostel though and I would recommend staying there.
