There was everything at Verandahs that you required. The kitchen/dining area was fully equipped and very clean. The staff were very helpful and friendly and always willing to help in any way possible.
Very beautiful place in old villa , rooms big and very clean
A beautiful hostel, tastefully decorated and very clean and tidy. Hostel owner is extremely helpful and friendly, both before and during our stay. nice quiet location with verandahs overlooking a stunning park. Great kitchen facilities and comfy beds!
Great location, comfortable, clean, and very affordable. Easily the best backpacker I have ever stayed in.
Clean, tidy, comfortable rooms and facilities. Well-equipped, large kitchen. Plenty of room for relaxing. Relatively quiet for a city location. Close to the CBD but not too close.
It would have been good to have somewhere more secure to lock up my bike but I understand that this isn't a priority in the backpackers market.
Great room, clean amenities, clean kitchen.
Didn't like the noise of drunken fights in the park - however, this does not reflect on the staff.
Fantastic backpackers. Beautiful rooms, balconies and a great large well equipped kitchen. Very helpful owner.
Convenient location between city and Ponsonby Road means it was possible to walk to both, without being in the busgle of either. The park at the rear is a real plus in the middle of the city. And the carpeted room with high stud seems - by backpacker standards - quite luxurious. Friendly proprietor.
Since I'm not really a backpacker, I'd have liked some coathangers and a small wardrobe or rail on which to hang clothes. But perhaps that's too much to ask of this kind of operation!
Finally, a clean, characterful, quiet, friendly hostel that's warm and welcoming. Superbly comfortable, great facilities, friendly people of all ages, and a marvellous location. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Very friendly staff, good location, the lodge is very clean. All is perfect!
Welcoming atmosphere Great location Best place to stay in Auckland as backpacker!
Clean and tidy. Great location near Ponsonby road. Pretty quiet, though some traffic noise. Parking available outside hostel.
Odd layout: kitchen is in a separate building. Spartan aspect to the rooms, which lacked hooks on the door or a chair to put clothes on. Thin walls. No wifi.
This place is wondfull! Quiet, chilled, relaxing its a very lovely hostel. Love the high ceilings in the rooms, and overlooking the park is very nice. cheers
Good location and value for money.
We were in a private room for privacy and security. There was building going on at the time which was fine. Didn't really bother me until one of the builders came into the room while we were in bed! So did not feel the room was private or secure and had to take important documents and valuables with us every time when leaving the room. Told them at the office and they didn't seem bothered or apologetic.
Internet/Computer sucks - have to pay for it, but it's really slow
