Getting here

Self-drive & Parking

The Attic is based right in the heart of central Auckland. Our fantastic location means that we aren’t able to include parking options in our low low rates.

We have partnered up with The Atrium Car Park team, to provide all of our Guests with an affordable, secure and nearby option to park their vehicle while staying with us.

Atrium Car Park is located within 100 metres of Attic Backpackers and offers a fantastic online only discount code PARK20 deal which provides 24 hour parking for just $20.00 including unlimited access. This is by a long way the cheapest rate available for Auckland CBD parking.

Additionally make use of code PARK10 for Single-entry overnight parking from 5pm to 10am for just $10.00

Atrium Car Park is accessible via Albert Street (turn into Albert Street from Victoria Street to avoid CRL roadworks) and is located less than 100m from the entrance to The Attic. The carpark is located next to Auckland’s Crowne Plaza Hotel and also services the Atrium Shopping Centre. 

We recommend taking the car park lift to the Atrium shopping centre Elliot Street.entrance and a very short walk up Wellesley Street brings you to the Attic Backpackers entrance. 

Guests wishing to make use of this option will need to prebook this before their arrival at The Atrium, using the book now button below!
