If a fun, social vibe is what you’re looking for from your next stay in the City of Sails, then the latest addition to Auckland’s youth accommodation scene is designed with you in mind.
The world’s first Zest OK youth hotel will open in Auckland’s Grafton on November 23, ushering in a new era for backpacking in the city. This exciting new addition to the accommodation fold offers private rooms, with lively shared spaces to make your stay a memorable one.
Created for the young and young-at-heart, Zest OK promises a fun, social environment for short and long-term travellers wanting to soak up all that Auckland has to offer.
The desirable Grafton location ensures entertainment is on your doorstep with transport hubs in close proximity, the buzz of the central city is 10 minutes away, as well as being a convenient distance from Spark Arena and festival hotspots.
Designed with the socially-conscious youth traveller in mind, this affordable two-star youth hotel delivers a vibrant atmosphere where meeting new people is encouraged, thanks to the shared social spaces available.
“Zest OK offers guests a vibrant place to stay where meeting new people is encouraged. It’s designed to enhance the travel experience, allowing you to share your experiences and make them even more memorable with new friends,” states Oliver Faull, Senior Vice President of Australia and New Zealand for Swiss-Belhotel International.
Made up of 321 rooms with a choice of single or double occupancy, each room is fitted with a bed, fridge, desk and windows, along with shared bathrooms (two per floor) and common areas on each of the 11 floors.
The shared social spaces are where the action happens, with each floor featuring a kitchen, lounge/TV room and laundry facilities. While a large outdoor space fitted with a BBQ and covered seating is on offer for all guests to enjoy.
Each guest is provided with a security card with 24-hour access and entry to your floor and common areas, ensuring a safe and secure environment.
This new addition will extend Auckland's youth accommodation offering and provide a value-conscious option for those looking to make their dollar go further.
“This is the world’s first Zest OK, with expansion planned across New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia and other Asian destinations where Swiss-Belhotel International has a strong presence”, Mr. Faull added.
