Auckland Backpackers

We provide backpackers’ accommodation right in the heart of Auckland. Here at Uenuku Lodge we pride ourselves on being one of the friendliest lodges in Auckland

Our lodge is a small, comfortable and clean house, and is situated right on famous Ponsonby Road, Auckland's trendiest multicultural suburb with many varied and interesting boutiques, shops, cafes, restaurants, bars…everything to make your stay colourful and lively. 

This central city suburb is great entertainment, both during the day and at night. Or if it's time to chill out and rest before your next adventure you can enjoy the laid back environment at Uenuku Lodge. We also boast million dollar views of the city you just won’t get at other hostels, check out our cheap accommodation options for affordable options to suit any criteria.

Look what our wonderful visitors say:


Fantastic Place to Stay

"Uenuku Lodge was a fantastic place to stay. We had a private room to ourselves with a palm tree outside our window and a beautiful view of the downtown skyline and the sky tower, definitely better than we expected.

The staff (Vidhi) were lovely and helpful with our specific needs, pointing out the best vegan restaurants in the neighbourhood. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals, with a large collection of free communal food items like oil, spices, etc."

It's really really easy to access all the backpacker necessities like dairy and grocery stores, New World Supermarket, banks, a post office, a library, fruit and vegetable shops, bakeries, pharmacies - walk along Ponsonby Road and you'll find one right away.

All the city's sightseeing and tourist attractions are easy to access using the local $3.50 ride on the Link bus. This service puts you in touch with the city centre and the inner city suburbs, including Victoria Park Market, Sky Tower, casino, Queen Street, Britomart Bus and Railway Station, Parnell, Newmarket, the Domain (Museum) and Karangahape Road (K- Road). Alternatively, it’s a lovely 20 minute walk to the city centre.

Going out of town? Uenuku Lodge is ideal for travellers who want easy access to the motorway and Harbour Bridge to continue their travels up North or to head down South.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
