- “ The lady at the front desk was extremely friendly and welcoming. She was much more interested in making us feel at home than collecting fees. The room was clean and neat. ”

“ We had the double room inside the courtyard and found it really poorly ventilated with super inconvenient outlet access. ”
Hi Aaron, Sorry you felt this way in regards to the twin cabin. Most people enjoy the quirkiness of having a separate accommodation not linked to the main house, so we are sorry to find you felt this was a negative. We hope you enjoy NZ and will consider a stay with us again on your next trip to Auckland. Cheers, The Ponsonby Backpackers Team

- “ Loved it so much we stayed there twice - once at the start of our trip and again at the end! All the front desk staff were super helpful with directions and suggestions for places to eat and sightsee. Would definitely recommend! ”

- “ The staff is really helpful and laid back. People in the dorms were considerate and great People to meet. If you want to stay away from high-rise, queen street hostels this is your place. Great times ”
