My partner and I stayed here three times during a month in New Zealand. Staff and visitors friendly and cheerful. Staff helpful about reservations and changes. Some social nights--movies, games. Free parking. A car was helpful, but buses are available. Groceries within a few blocks. The private rooms had good mattresses, ability to lock door to protect luggage, good air...

Our staff love to hear they are doing a good job. Thanks for returning three times as returning guests are important to us. We have supermarkets, banks, post offices all very close as well as cafes and bars for a night out without driving. There is a bus into the city just across the road.

Thanks Lim. There is a bus stop just across the road and it is a 10 minute trip into the city. You can also walk into the city if you have time. We are quite close to the museum and the domain as well as Mt Eden and Mount Eden village. Just up the road from a supermarket, banks, post...

I was only at Bamber House for 1 night and arrived late but the stay was very pleasant. The room was tidy and well maintained. The bathrooms were clean and there were large spacious living areas to relax in. If I am ever in the need for easy overnight accommodation again I will be using Bamber House

We do our best to make sure our guests are comfortable. We have innerspring mattresses and good quality sheets and duvet covers. The communal areas are large and the couches are comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked. We hope you come again one day.

This hostel has a great friendly vibe, and I found it very easy to meet new friends. The facilities are all there, plenty of room for everyone. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the location, even though not in the centre, is still very convenient.

Bamber House is in Mt Eden an inner city suburb. We are not a party hostel so if you are looking somewhere quieter where you can park your car and get a good night's sleep. Thanks for the feedback on my staff they work hard and appreciate it.

Lovely staff, lovely place and a really friendly atmosphere. My husband and I stayed in a double room with ensuite bathroom. Although the walls between rooms were very thin, we slept well each night. The communal areas were good, as was the kitchen and the hostel is very conscientious about recycling and the environment which was lovely to see. Thank...

I stayed here for only one night and liked it a lot. I arrived very early in the morning and could access the common areas easily with a key code I received via email. The bed (dorm) was comfy and all shared spaces were clean and well maintained. What I loved most was the garden and veranda. Sunbathing and relaxing...

Thanks for your review. There are very few hostels in Auckland that can offer car parking and a garden area to relax and unwind. not only that but we are close to gardens and parks and lots of cafes and restaurants.

We stayed here just one night before flying out of Auckland the next day. We'd booked a deluxe double with ensuite. The room was a cabin out back and smelled strongly of damp so we kept the window open all night. It was clean but the sheets were stained and towels sweaty smelling. Shower was strong and hot though. The...

Sorry you were disappointed. We have ensuite rooms but they are pretty basic and we certainly don't advertise them as deluxe. Maybe you would be happier in a hotel or motel. It has been very wet in Auckland with three weather bombs recently. We have fixed a leak in the room that we discovered after the last storm. We take...

This is definitely the best hostel in New Zealand and I absolutely loved it! The Bamber House feels like home and people keep extending their stay here all the time.

Car parking can be a problem in Auckland and it is one of the main reasons people with cars choose us. However Bamber House has so much more going for it. The high speed free wifi is very popular too. We have great communal spaces and hotel quality innerspring mattresses. Not to mention great staff.
