Welcome to Oaklands Lodge

A Home Away From Home

Come and experience Auckland’s longest running backpacker hostel and find out why we have been one of Auckland’s favourite hostels for over 50 years. Please note we are a strictly 18+ as our hostel is not a suitable environment for children.​



Oaklands Lodge is a medium sized hostel that sleeps around 50 guests. This makes it easy to meet new people and make new friends.  While we encourage our guests to mix and mingle we are not a party hostel and after 10.00pm we ask our guests to respect other guests who may be trying to sleep.


Oaklands Lodge is located in the leafy inner-city suburb of Mt Eden.  We are at the base of Mt Eden volcano which is Auckland’s most visited tourist attraction and a few steps away from Mt Eden village which is full of great places to eat and drink as well as some fabulous boutique shops to browse in.  You will be sure to love the relaxed village lifestyle while enjoying easy accessibility to the city centre, airport and all that Auckland has to offer.  The city is just a 10 minute bus ride away.
