          The hostel is very well furnished, clean and quite . The area around it is so nice . Wonderful view from the windows. 10 mins walk to Queen Street. I've travelled all around NZ and Verandahs is one of the best!

          This is one of the most spacious and beautiful hostels I've ever stayed at. It's just outside of the city center, but close to some of the nightlife areas. Fun and helpful staff, occasionally even making you feel like a special guest.

          I had a fabulous stay. Such a charming old building with modern, clean facilities. Verandahs is so close to all things central Auckland, it's so easy to get around the central city. Great staff too. I'll definitely be back.
