Choice Plaza Backpackers is located right in the heart of where all the action is. You will have amazing views of Auckland city no matter what floor you stay on. Give us a chance to demonstrate our hospitality and to help make your stay in Auckland, as economic and comfortable as possible

Located at the historic corner of Queen Street and Wellesley Street, we are located truly at the heart of Auckland right at the beginning of Auckland Downtown, better known as the Central Business District or CBD. While this is a busy business place during day, it also features a high concentration of beautiful parks. At the late afternoon the many restaurants start to open, if they haven’t been it so far. At night you can spent your time with your friends at the biggest selection of bars you will find in New Zealand. Auckland is always open, every day of the week – and so are we.

Important Information

As Auckland’s second biggest hostel, you can imagine that we have to do a big job. Very often, we are the first destination for travellers new to New Zealand and we will help you to get started as easily as possible. As such, we have prepared a lot of systematically structured information, which helps you to find your way around. Maps, pre-populated IRD forms, a proof of residence to open your bank account and much more. Want more? No problem. We also have an activity schedule for Auckland, as well as a list of our very own NZ must see destinations. Staying with us, usually means to come back. This is why we keep your mail while you are travelling New Zealand. And as you will see us most likely, before your departure back home, we will help your with your tax refund, too. Friendly multi-lingual staff will help you with all your needs.
