“Decent Hotel, Convenient for the Airport”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

The staff at the Airport Skyway lodge are really friendly and welcoming, and they offer a useful $5 airport transfer service. There is a large well stocked kitchen, but it was a little grubby when we stayed there. Rooms are decent but dated, much like the hotel itself. There is a nice common room with log fire. WiFi is extra.

5 minutes drive to the airport and 24 hours shuttle bus, nice! Free tea, coffee, milk and spices and even free food and camping gear sometimes. Supermarket, takeaway, cafe and ATM nearby. Bus to downtown across the road. Good for just arriving and leaving Auckland stay.

Room Tip: The owner tries to arrange guest in quiet room. So kind and considerate.

After our arrival at Auckland Airport the friendly guy from the hotel picked us up only a few minutes after we have called him! The room was very clean and very cheap! The next day the hotels shuttle drove us back to the airport although it was really very early in the morning everything went well! I really can recommend this hotel if someone needs a room near the airport!

My sister and I spent the first night of our 2-week NZ trip here at Skyway Lodge. We couldn't have asked for a better start!

Scott and Miki are easy-going, gracious hosts and it felt like they were welcoming us into their home. We hadn't arranged for shuttle service beforehand, but Scott picked us up quickly from the airport with just a phone call. He helped us form the day's itinerary--seeing downtown Auckland with all the proper bus/ferry routes, a map, SIM card, etc. and let us lock up our packs at the Lodge since it was early AM.

Upon return, the en suite room they gave us was huge with a double and a twin bed. Very clean, the beds were comfortable, and we enjoyed the in-room tea. Even with the windows opened a bit during the night, it was quiet. Early the next morning, Scott got us back to the airport for our jump to Queenstown.

For the rest of our trip, we stayed in YHA's and a couple independent backpackers. We thought Skyway Lodge was tops in terms of value and friendliness. Thank you for the wonderful stay!

The best part of this brief one night stay prior to flying out of Auckland airport was the hotel manager/?owner Scott who was very obliging picking up and dropping you off at the airport and giving advice. The hotel (hostel) had a good clean kitchen and decent beds. The bathroom and showers are in two small cubicles and could foresee lineups during the busy mornings. All in all Ok place to stay.

I had a very wonderful trip in New Zealand during Jan 08-22, 2013 with my friend. Auckland was the last stop of this trip, then fly back to Gold Coast Australia in the very early morning on Jan 23, so we decided to stay at this backpacker as they are the only backpacker near the airport.

It was my worst backpacker experience in New Zealand and Australia, their facilities is normal, but the service is poor, the staff wasn't friendly, the lady staff was so impolite and impatient, and rude. The lady was asking me and my friend to pay the room charges upon check in, but my friend remembers that she provided all credit card detail when she booked the room, so we said we need to double check and my frd was checking the confirmation email on her phone, then the check in lady was long face then showed us a copy of email which it's not belong to us, and said "see, we didn't charge anything from the credit card, all detail is only for guarantee purpose, your country people is not trust on other people" This is an insult, then we had a small fight on this, anyway we paid without checking and went out right away, as we didn't wanna stay longer at the desk with her.

My trip was ruined! I will not recommend anyone to stay there.

Hi Im a Korean traveller. On 2nd march. I stayed in skyway for a night. It was a great time to stay.
It is so close to the airport that I could reach there easily.
Also it has safe and convenient pickup service.
In newzealand i used 24 hostels for a month.
I think the skyway is one of the best and comfortable hostels in my memory.
If are there anyone consider stay here, I recommend Skyway lodge strongly.
Happy and safe stay.
Thank you for the good memory. Skyway and Scott who is a owner.
