Hey guys,

So me and my boyfriend are currently living in Melbourne, Australia but in January we're leaving for New Zealand on 23 month working holiday visas.

The first place we're heading is Auckland, so just wanted to know firstly which hostel is best to stay at?

Also, is anyone else heading to Auckland early next year at all? If so we may be able to organise a house/flat share?

Me and my boyfriend (Corey) are both from Plymouth in the UK and up for meeting some like-minded chaps while living in NZ. 420 friendly and so on.

If you are staying that long, do an internet search on flatshare in Auckland. While some are very expensive, there are cheap ones too. Look for a place with good public transport links.

Also try googling Bond Street Lodge. I was in Auckland for three months and stayed there. You get your own room but share a living room and kitchen and a bathroom. It is kind of halfway between a hostel and a flat! But fairly reasonably priced.
