Getting here

Public/Hired Transport

From Auckland International
Recommended: Skybus

Take the Skybus from the designated airport pickup point,
The bus service is priced at $17 per person, each way and takes approximately 50 minutes

The Attic can book this service for you in advance, simply send us an email, or at the time of booking simply add ”Skybus round-trip tickets required” into the additional requests field. We also provide tickets from our Reception.

Service times can vary, but are usually every 30 minutes through the day.
Take the service from the Skybus terminal outside the Departures area of the Airport. Disembark the Skybus at Stop 9, Queen St. This Stop is located next to Westpac bank. From here it’s a short 3 minute walk to the hostel. Travel South towards Wellesley St West, turn right and walk uphill for one minute.

Our Entrance is found just up from Tony’s Steakhouse on the right side of Wellesley St, just before you reach the corner of Albert Street.

You can also take a super shuttle from the airport from $45 per person and $8 per additional person, this will bring you to our door.

Alternatively you can take an Uber for a similar price.

From Intercity/ Skycity bus terminal

If you’re taking the any Intercity cross-country service, their drop-off for Auckland is the Bus terminal on Hobson Street, in the SkyCity complex.
The Attic is conveniently located less than a 4 minute walk away.

Simply walk around the corner onto Wellesley Street West, easy! We are located at 31 Wellesley, our entrance is just by Tony’s Steakhouse.

From Britomart Train station

Take the exit onto Queen St, and walk South, away from the harbour. After 10 minutes you’ll reach Wellesley Street West, on the right.

If you have heavy luggage, then hop on the City link bus (Green) heading South along Queen St. Disembark at McDonalds, then walk around the corner to Wellesley Street.

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 fantastic 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.

Please use the discount code PARK20 to unlock their discount options available only to Attic Guests. Rates are available as low as $10 for a night, down from approximately $20 in other city-center car parks.

Alternatively you could also make use of the Civic car park. Which is located in the Civic Centre. A full list of city car parking options can be found on the Auckland Transport site.

Free Parking

For long-stay Guests wanting to park their vehicle indefinitely without the charges associated with city-parking, there are limited options.

We recommend heading out to the Hearne Bay area, to the West of the city and trying to find unrestricted parking in and around the suburbs.
From Hearne Bay walk direct back to the city via Victoria St West, via Ponsonby, which will take approximately 30-45 minutes.

The Attic only recommends this as a matter of last resort. Always attempt to ask permission whenever you car in residential areas, consider and respect local residents when parking vehicles in their neighbourhoods.
