About Brown Kiwi Travellers Hostel

We have been hosting international travelers in our fabulous budget accommodation since 1997. The house, built in 1897, is a great example of early New Zealand architecture. It is a super-friendly, quiet and safe place for you to find out about New Zealand, plan your travels, meet new friends and look for jobs or buy a car. Sleeping a maximum of 32 guests, we offer great value accommodation in a fantastic central location right near Auckland city centre. And we have FREE PARKING right outside!

You can share meals in our homely country-style fully-equipped kitchen where we provide free tea, coffee, sugar & spices or relax in our sunny, subtropical garden or TV room. All our beds are made with freshly laundered linen sheets and duvets. Internet & WiFi and free local calls are available.

We are located in Ponsonby, Auckland’s best inner-city suburb with cafes, bars, supermarket, banks & bus stop, the waterfront and parks close by. The city centre is a 10 minute bus ride away, or 20 minute walk. A $1.90 ride on the “Link Bus” puts you in touch with all of the inner Auckland City suburbs giving you access to the ferry terminal, Victoria Park Market, the SkyCity Casino, Queen Street, Downtown, Britomart (bus and railway station), Parnell, Newmarket, the Auckland Domain and Museum, the Hospital, Auckland University, Auckland Institute of Technology, Auckland Library and the famous K’ Rd.

The Brown Kiwi is ideally located for north-south travellers who want easy access to the motorway and Harbour Bridge.

When you arrive, our friendly and helpful staff will provide you with a map and directions, information about finding jobs or cars, and travel advice. We can book your tours, rental cars and arrange BBH car insurance for you
