Guest Reviews

LyLo Auckland is a pretty neat place

LyLo Auckland is a pretty neat place. If you have never stayed in a hostel before this is a great way to start super friendly staff with a great atmosphere and amenities. The restaurant on the first floor is great with good cocktails and food and they always have some kind of activity going on! The size of the pods is also great, if you have ever stayed in a Japanese capsule then this is going to feel huge. I would absolutely come back here and I think that it is a super cool experience!

Awesome stay!

Awesome stay! Amazing shower, clean and quiet pods, and conveniently attached to a restaurant downstairs. Very safe for female solo travellers, highly recommend! Just a bit of a walk from the heart of downtown

Loved the privacy of a pod and having the choice to socialise.

I was greeted by a lovely man who showed me around. Having a bar/restaurant just downstairs was perfect for early morning rises. The bathroom/shower area was huge, the best for such a large facility but I never saw more than three girls in the room with me, leaving plenty of free cubicles. Nothing bad.

I believe this is one of best the hostels in Auckland by far.

I love the facilities, cleanliness, and location.

Best Hostel i've been too!

Everything, Best hostel I have been to so far!



Lovely, spacious private room! Super comfortable bed and pillows. Very walkable area and the staff are so helpful. Love that there’s always an event the staff put on in case you run out of ideas on what to do. 🙂


I loved this hostel.

It was clean, modern, and there was a good balance of social life and privacy. Checking in and out was very easy, and I felt very comfortable (literally like I was home). Would recommend this place to anyone visiting Auckland as you get a lot for your money 🙂

Absolutely loved my stay here!

Absolutely amazing staff and comfortable rooms, super close to the bus station and a great vibe, I absolutely loved my stay here and will definitely be back, much love for the super kind staff they’re awesome.

This place understands hospitality

I was thoroughly pleased with my stay. If you have any issues while you are there, talk to reception. They listen and make things right. Keep up that way of service LyLo!

Highly recommend for fellow travellers!

Welcoming and friendly staff. Modern and clean rooms, bathrooms and kitchen. 10 mins away from the city centre. What more could you want? They even have a bar as part of the lobby! Cannot recommend this place enough for backpackers or even regular people on holiday.

Great hostel, really loved my stay here. Especially the modern style and the amazing stuff I appreciated. Furthermore the day trips organised by Dajana were fun and a great way to connect with others as well as see the sights.

What wasn't there to like?!

The individual pods were so cool with everything you needed; plugs, pockets to put your items in, a light, a mirror and best of all you could slide the door for complete privacy. Huge lockers allocated to your pod number big enough to fit suitcases inside. The 1st floor bathroom was very aesthetically pleasing and Instagram worthy!! I would come back in a heartbeat!

One of the best hostels I've stayed at.

I had a private room, which was very clean and modern with a private bathroom, AC and a TV. The hostel has its own bar which I ate at a few times, and it was good! Very convenient! Staff were friendly. Location was great!

Very safe plus great location

Very clean, comfortable room. Nice facilities and felt very safe plus great location. Really enjoyed my stay. I rebooked right away for my last two days in NZ, it’s a great location for taking the bus from/to the airport as well.

Staff call you by your name

I loved staying at Lylo. I had reason to stay for 2 weeks, choose a pod and was very happy. Everything was clean, staff were attentive, lots of common spaces with cool decor and generally felt like home. The pods have pretty good level of quiet, and the majority of guests tend to be considerate. I would choose to stay here again without hesitation. It says a lot when the staff call you by your name, and the bar/cafe adjoining was perfect with every coffee being top notch.
