A little like a Hippie Community, relaxed and open people, vegan food, guacamole every day during our stay.


A community! Best place to spend time in Auckland if you enjoy the outdoors.


I adore it here, could have stayed forever!! Wonderful friendly people, very comfortable communal spaces, amaying home cooked meals 3 times a day, and all the beauty and fun you could want. I loved the yoga deck, nightly volleyball games, fires, and easy mornings. Definitely reccomend!


To have breakfast and dinner together is really awsome and it had a perfect taste!

Awesome community setting! Beware if you want luxury this isn't for you. It's a place where you hang out on old couches and help with dinner and cleaning. It's a cozy place when just arriving in a new area and the people are super helpful. Bikes were available for a small fee for a great day ride to Fairy Falls. Definitely recommended.


The concept of travelers community is amazing and and for the most part works, but there is no equality between wwoofers and backpackers and clear disorganization and contradictions in the decision making process of the owner, which is really unfair towards some of the guests. Plus, the owner is unwilling to help and/or listen to feedback. Bottom line- i really enjoyed staying here, thanks to the amazing people that are running the place, but the owner was annoying


A great moment there ! A lot a nice people, an alternative view of the world, nature close to the city. I will come back here and nowhere else when I'll be back in Auckland !
