Silverfern Backpackers Reviews

Silverfern Backpackers is a big city hostel located some ten minutes' walk from Auckland's city center. The big three-story building on Hobson Street offers plenty of accommodation options and is a good budget choice for the backpacker pocket. It offers free unlimited Wi-Fi, lockers, and laundry service, as well as some indoor entertainment options like pool, foosball, or a TV room.

The Location

The hostel is located ten minutes' walking away from the city center and Auckland's main facilities. Nevertheless, there are supermarket, food, and general needs options just around the hostel all along Hobson Street -- one of Auckland's main avenues, although it does not get too busy in general.

Rooms and Bathrooms

There are both bunk-bed dormitories and private rooms (although no en-suite options are available), most of which are mainly located on the upper second level of the building. In general, the dormitories are long kind of narrow rooms with bunk beds located along the left and right sides of it. They provide average mattresses with accessible power sockets, although not too much space to leave guests' baggage. There are bathrooms in all three levels, with two showers located on the underground floor and three on the second floor.

Common Spaces

Right after the main key-locked door passed the lobby, there is a big hall room with several sofas for the guests to rest and meet with fellow travelers. Located on the ground floor as well, there is a pretty big kitchen with three stoves, two sinks, and several fridges, conveniently connected to an "American-style" dining room with four tables. Right next to it, you can find a TV room with no more than a dozen DVD film options for guests to watch, with three sofa lines arranged in some cinema-like design (it might as well work as a chilling-out room to read or talk when nobody is making use of the facility). Finally, on the underground floor, there are free-to-use pool and foosball tables.

Summary

Although Silverfern might not do it for the most quality-seeking guests, it is indeed a good hostel for budget backpackers to stay and have a good time with other travelers. At a very competitive price, its big indoor common spaces are quite handy to pass the time while not exploring the city, especially when Auckland's weather turns against your tourist ambitions.
