Excellent hostel, one of the best I ever have in life. People there are super amazing. If you would love to meet some good friends , this is the place ! Thanks every Fatcat backpackers for making my trip super awesome !

I enjoyed the staff's friendliness. The two meals that came with the cost of the stay was healthy. It was interesting to share in the chores by pulling straws. Being early winter, getting hot water for a shower took a long time to warm up, and there was no hot water to wash dishes. Internet wifi was provided, but being there for 2 days, all that was given was 30mb, really not much.

A great place to relax if you're stressed out take a day or two to unwind befor going on an adventure. it will set the tone for the rest of your trip and put your mind in the right place for traveling and remind you that it isn't always about pushing yourself to see everything as quickly as possible but that it is also important to unwind relax and live

The staff and guest were very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was conducive for meeting quality people. The work shops were fun and informative. Unfortunately someone walked off with my pair of Keens which cost me quite a lot to replace at Kathmandu.

This is pretty much a hippy commune,and if your up for that kind of thing you will love it. The atmosphere is so intoxicating and positive you cant help but be happy. Only issue is the lack of loos and showers when there are lots of residents but that's the only setback. Amazing food, great music, best people.

Amazing community of woofers and backpackers. Atmosphere sucks you in with all the positivity. Great place to meet open-minded people and eat excellent veggie foods. If you want to party and eat food from grease factories, don't come here!

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!

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 !

Hostel is straight up not in Auckland so not sure why its listed as one of the top in the city. Good for long termers and great atmosphere but a nightmare if you need to get in/out of the city (an hour out by train).

Very nice stay. Just the cost of internet access war a bit high. 8 $ for 100 MB hmm, a little bit to much.

It was one of the best hostels I've stayed so far. super friendly lovely people, spontanous, great ideas and everybody accepts each other. I used it as a base to get back to and it felt like home coming back :) stayed 3 times for around a week, just because food was so amazing and all the little chats and games and night. It really make it difficult to leave this place, once you enjoyed staying there: Thanks for making these amazing memories I really love to look back to! xxxx

This is certainly for the more bohemian traveller. Beautiful garden and lots of places to chill out with people or just by yourself. But it is shabby in parts and a little old and dated. But its a nice atmosphere. The owners were away when I stayed, but the long term WWOOFers showed me around. Its very eco friendly, recycle and compost most waste. A lovely kitchen garden is out back, you can pay to sit with the other stayers and eat from the garden. This was great as Rafa was a good cook!
