We’re proud of the awards we’ve won as New Zealand’s Best Accommodation, but don’t take our word for it – see what our awesome guests have to say.

Clean, affordable accommodation. I stayed in a private room, the room was very clean, had a nice modern look to it and the bed was nice and comfortable. The Maori signage on all the rooms was a nice touch. It's a fantastic location if you need to be on K'Road, I would happily stay here again.


Great place for the Budget conscious travelers. Location is good - I love their idea of shared Kitchen, so efficient. Rooms including toilets very clean. Towels well supplied. Beddings are clean. Can cook / fix your own meals - saves you CASH !! Very secured!! Enough space to store your food / supplies. Bathrooms are modern, shower enclosures. Even their Public Toilets are well-maintained. Staff are friendly when asked. Rooms are NOT cramped - enough space for huge bags.

Don’t even consider anywhere else. Everything was outstanding with this hostel, best, most comfortable and clean I’ve ever stayed in. Does not matter if you are in a 20 bed dorm or a 4 bed, you have all the privacy you need. 100% would stay here again.


Great Stay 🙂 Overall great stay! Very helpful staff at front desk. Rooms were very clean and well taken care of. The privacy curtains on the bunks are a nice touch. Rooms are spacious and the high ceilings really help to make it feel airy.


Very good hostel but there are things to improve. The hostel it's nice, warm atmosphere and very clean. However, the location isn't the best, the connectivity in the basement room was bad and the kitchen it's small regarding the quantity of guests. From Wednesday to Saturdays the bar close to the hostel make so much noise up to 2am that it's impossible to sleep.

An affordable overnight stay. Haka Lodge Auckland was a convenient and affordable place to stay overnight in the Karangahape Road area. The beds were comfortable and we appreciated having our own en suite bathroom rather than sharing communal facilities. The staff were helpful and friendly.


I stayed in the female dorm with 7 beds. I was the last to arrive and the 7th bed has no curtain and no locker (only the other 6 beds do...) Almost everything in the kitchen is broken or not functionning well: oven and so on. Staff only helps with reservations for trips when they get a commission. So if you want to book in the evening they don't help you. When I was there almost everyone in the common areas was on a phone or lap top or tablet, people were not talking to each other much.


Great place, Great location and all the rooms are pretty new. Very clean place. The shared bathroom are very close to the rooms and they are very cleaned and maintained. The reception was very friendly and good place to stay in Auckland.


Good location and service! This hotel/hostel has a great location on Karangahape rd with all of the restaurants and shops. The room was good and the bed comfortable. We enjoyed the ensuite. There is no lift and we carried our luggage up to the 3rd floor. The service was excellent and friendly and we enjoyed staying here. The only downside was that the kitchen was crowded. Would stay here again!


Home base in Auckland. The staff at Haka were amazing! The manager Olivia and Assistant Manager Danni were always ready to help you out, and the night managers Harrison and Pier made you feel like close friends, not guests. I made so many friends staying here, it’s more like being away at summer camp than staying in a hostel. The only thing I can complain about is that the kitchen can be a bit of a mess and the towels are in need of more washing or replacing, but that’s not the staffs fault. The rest of the hostel is really clean and the beds are awesome.
