Important Information

See the sights and attractions of central Auckland and its coastlines or just chill. We offer something between a traditional backpacker hostel and an old-style hotel and our visitors range from young people and students on a shoestring budget to open-minded mature travelers. We are close to the Link bus serving Auckland's city centre and surrounding suburbs. We offer free parking (some off-street), undercover bicycle storage, fast internet access and free unbiased travel information and bookings. We can arrange door to door transport to and from Auckland airport for a minimum cost. And for mind-body-spirit enthusiasts we have a yoga center right on our front lawn. We know New Zealand and can give advice on the secret places that will make your trip something to remember—in, around and beyond Auckland.
