An Enjoyable Stay”

I had a good time at Silverfern, the staff were super helpful and friendly, bedroom was nice and clean with other interesting guests. The kitchen was large with good appliances and equipment. Toilets and showers were clean and well maintained. Location is good near main bus terminal and Sky Tower. This seems to be one of the best hostels in Auckland.

Such a nice stay”

I stayed at here for 2 nights. The place wasn't difficult to find, and it is near to the Intercity bus terminal, lots of restaurants shops at there too within 5-10 min walking distance. The staff were very helpful as they will ask us either we need anything or not. The room is clean too. A lot of facilities in the guesthouse, they even have TV room and computers for guests to use it. Their shared bathroom and kitchen was big enough. Will recommend this place to other friends if they go to Auckland next time.
