There is also a Sanctuary wing for girls only. Great for individuals and groups!

Base Auckland’s excellent starter and work packs along with an expert job search centre sets it apart from the rest, guaranteeing to find jobs for travellers who are keen to work whilst abroad.

When it comes to socializing, our hostel can’t be beaten, with nightly entertainment on offer! Start the night off at the Balcony Bar (seasonal) on the 6th floor of Base Auckland, and then join the travellers down at New Zealand’s biggest party bar, the famous Globe Bar. What are you waiting for?

We also have a free phone to Base Auckland backpackers in the Visitor's Information Centre in the main arrivals area. The Receptionist can arrange for a Shuttle driver to collect you from the free phone or give you instructions to get to the Shuttle Rank.
