Location & Directions
If this is your first visit to New Zealand, you are likely to arrive at the Auckland International Airport. From there you have the following 3 options to get to us:
- Take the “SkyBus” right outside of the international or domestic terminal and exit at the last stop on 280 Queen Street. It operates 24/7 and tickets can be purchased inside the bus for cash or via the AT Hop Card. At the airport you can also buy tickets in advance in a small booth right next to the station. A one way ticket is priced at $18.00 or $32.00 return (discounts for online purchases are available, $17.00/$30.00). Just check the current timetable for the SkyBus.
- If travelling in a group it is cheaper to take the “Super Shuttle” once your group size exceeds 3 people. There is no need to book this service, when arriving from the airport. Shuttles are always waiting outside the international terminal and will drop you off right at our front door. The ride for 4 people should be priced at $60.00 for the whole group.
- “Discount Taxis” is bringing you to the city centre for as little as $45.00. You can book the taxi for free under 0800 529 100.
- A regular Taxi is priced at $90.00 and waits always in front of the airport terminal.
If you are returning to Auckland via the InterCity bus you will be dropped off at the SkyCity Bus Terminal. From here it will be a 5 minute walk to our hostel. Just walk to the corner of Hobson St and Wellesley Street and walk towards Queen Street.
If you are returning to Auckland by one of the many ferries you will be arriving at the Auckland Ferry Terminal. From here it will be a 10-15 minute walk to our hostel. Just walk up Queen Street toward the corner of Queen St and Wellesley Street and turn left.
Alternatively you can catch the red CityLink Bus, which stops several times on Queen Street. It is priced at $0.80.
After returning to Auckland from the north via State Highway 1 follow the signs that say “city center” and follow the directions to “Sky City”. This brings you automatically to Victoria Street. Follow the street until you reach Queen Street and turn right. At the corner of Queen Street and Wellesley Street turn left.
After returning to Auckland from the south via State Highway 1 simply take the exit to “Wellesley Street” and follow the road. This lets you end up right in front of our door.
