    Front desk receptionist ( Mila ) very helpful so are few gentlemen. Bathroom, kitchen facilities are very clean. Excellent location very close to Sky Tower, easy to catch buses, many restaurants within the area and most important very safe place to stay. I would recommend anyone visit Auckland, New Zealand check out this place.

    The kitchen was large, the wifi worked well, and there were plenty of hot showers/toilets available. Hairdryers were located near the showers/sinks. Computers were available on both floors. The staff was friendly, helpful, and welcoming. I loved having hot water in the morning for making instant oatmeal and coffee. This hostel is a quiet place to stay. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were stocked and clean. The location is GREAT - only 1 1/2 block to the bus station, close to a grocery store, and close to restaurants and the Sky Tower. I enjoyed my stay there.

    I was stuck in Auckland awaiting an emergency passport and this was the only accommodation I could find. Is really a backpackers place and I was able to get a double room with communal restrooms. The bed was very comfortable and room was clean. But the restrooms could do with more regular cleaning! The manager allowed me to keep my bags in the office after checkout which was very helpful.

    Auckland's Best New Hostel

    This was the third time I've stayed at Hobson Lodge and it's definitely my favorite in town. They're always improving and upgrading stuff. The kitchen and lounge area is clean, intelligently planned, and well-maintained. Derek, the manager, is accommodating, easy-going, and has a really good head on his shoulders. He remembers and welcomes me each time I return!

    HOTEL MIXTE BACKPACKERS

    hotel placé centre ville très pratique pour les activités et excursions , tout les rendez vous sont en centre ville, c est quand même un backpackers... un peu bruyant car les gens ne font pas attention quand ils vont aux toilettes : portes claques pour wc et douches, j ai même une une réunion de nouveaux arrivants a minuit faites dans le couloir de l étage (chambres) au lieu de réaliser leur réunion dans la cuisine au rez de chaussée ..dommage!!! pas de petit déjeuner les gens achètent leur produits rangent dans des casiers et déjeunent dans la cuisine(rez de chausse) pour moi de la chance il y a juste a cote de l hôtel un café ou bar qui réalise des déjeuners ( nom: métro galerie art) Cool.Je pense que c est un backpackers un peu au dessus de la moyenne.
