Hi forum,
Travelling around NZ April-June 2005, but for 3 weeks of this I will be doing a placemnt at a hospital in Auckland.
Will it be cheaper for a hard-up student like myself to book some sort of hostel beforehand, or (since it doesn't seem to be very busy in May), wait until i'm out there and look out for any deals?

Hi Mani,

Good question.
It is a tough call to make, but I would be inclined to look for a good deal through the net before you go.

What hospital will you be working at? I will see if I can recommend a good Hostel nearby.
You can also contact me through the form at New Zealand Focus.

Thanks Greg.
I will be at Auckland City Hospital for 3 weeks in May. Any ideas for decent hostels nearby are much appreciated.

Park Road, Grafton?

100 mts from the hospital there is a lodge called "Huia Residence", very nice, cheap and clean, usually booked up, so you'd better book in advance. I lived there for six months. Highly recommended for your requirements.
