About our Hostel


The YWCA Auckland hostel is a great place to stay whether you are visiting Auckland for a night or planning to study here for a year.

We are conveniently located right in the heart of the city, only a few minutes walk from AUT, University of Auckland and many international language schools. The Hostel has a public cafe onsite which has great coffee and food.

The hostel has 171 rooms and we offer accommodation to adult female and male residents, on either a long-term medium-term or casual basis. The majority of our residents are long term and 75% are foreign students.

Hostel facilities include a large communal kitchen and dining room with courtyard and barbeque, lounges with Sky TV and wireless internet (at an additional cost). We have coin-operated laundries and limited secure parking for $70 per week.

We have well-furnished single, twin and double rooms. All rooms have study desks, wardrobes, mini fridges and heating.

Our hostel is run in a relaxed kiwi style by an experienced international team – available 24 hours a day to help you. We are open 365 days a year and have 24 hour security.
