For people who like to be in the centre of things without heavy traffic outside, this is the real backpackers’ experience in one of Auckland’s oldest residential areas, full of historic architecture and character.
Located in Parnell on the fringe of Auckland’s business centre with not a high rise or apartment building in sight, City Garden Lodge Backpackers has the city’s finest restaurants, cafes, art galleries and upmarket shopping all within easy walking. Next door to Auckland’s largest city park with its museum and twice daily Maori concert performances—and with “Vector Arena” Auckland’s newest concert venue and sports stadium just 10 minutes walk away.
This is a really great place to stay if you are looking for a quiet friendly place a little outside of the main town. Kitchen is large and very well stocked. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful. Highly Recommended.

You are looking for a nice, clean and quiet place to stay? This is it! The hostel itself is just beautiful. The kitchen is very good equipped and the common area is very nice. It is not located in the centre of Auckland but is walking distance to downtown & to supermarket. Bus stop is very close as well.

I enjoyed the quiet location; yet it was near a lot of things to see. Thank you for the helpful information I received.

This is a great hostel in a relaxed part of the city but it's only minutes away from a good strip of restaurants and bars. The atmosphere of the place is fantastic, there are lots of places to louonge around and meet other travellers, and the staff are phenomenal!

This is an excellent and well run hostel. It is a little out of town so nice a quiet but it is very easy to get a link bus in to town, every ten minutes during the day. The kitchen is very well equipped, beds comfortable and towel provided. Plenty of indoors and outdoors relaxing space for meeting and talking with other travellers.
