One of the cheapest options for backpackers coming to Auckland. It has an apartment style layout and a bar on the first floor. The place is cleaned every day and there are always new people around. It's one of the only hostels with a bar and offers food for guests for free every evening with the option to upgrade to a bigger portion for $3 or a bigger portion and a beer for $5. The staff is friendly and its centrally located in the CBD. They have a no alcohol policy in place in the hostel and a large common area with a TV on the first floor. It's become a home a way and one of the cheapest places to stay in Auckland specially during the off season.

I liked the food options in the bar. It was either free or cheap. I think you can improve on having free wifi there. And it was helpful that all linen was provided so did not need to bring my own bedding.

Really helpful stuff and with free dinner every night, its becomes really easy to make new friends especially if you are travelling on your own! Would recommend

Cool place. Not the most flash place but the company is good and very chilled out. The pub downstairs is handy too. Staff is awesome and overall experience is awesome

Nomads Fat Camel Hostel in Auckland is a very centrally located and well visited Backpackers Hostel which at times shows from the furniture and staff. The noise from the bar is quite loud, but beds comfortable. The front desk was not exactly thrilled upon my arrival, but few days later very helpful with the request regarding a lost item and reciep. Very interesting crowds gather there, a great place to start the New Zealand adventure, to seek out the experience of those already returning home. Good value for the price.

One of the best hotels I've been at (and I've been to hundreds), except for some things like: 1) There are rooms with no windows, and they don't seem to have proper ventilation 2) No outlets at/close to the bed or bed lights 3) Wi-fi is not free and paying for it doesn't mean it's gonna be fast There is a $0(snack)/$3(full-size)/5 (+beer/wine/soda) meal option every night which might be good if you're on a budget - nothing special though. And the bar they have seems to be a good value. A big common room with TV, books and plenty of couches to crash on.

Not clean, not up to date. Unhelpful staff. Room in the fifth floor with no lift for a whole day. Stinky carpets. Good location.


Can you guess which NZ location takes top spot?
Get on down to Hobbitown and watch those likes pour in.

Can't speak highly enough of the staff, extremely accommodating and friendly. Place just had a repaint so was nice and fresh, only negative would have to be the thin mattress, but no big deal, everything else made up for that.

Totally agree that this is an #NZMustDO 
#NZMustDO Emerald lakes, alpine meadows and hot springs surround the volcanoes in Tongariro National Park - the largest in the North Island. The park's most celebrated activity is the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, a one-day trek that traverses the otherworldly terrain along the slopes of all three mountains: Tongariro, Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu.

Mary did a bungy jump and she's 91! What's your excuse? Come and do a bungy in Auckland with +AJ Hackett Bungy New Zealand  off the Harbour Bridge!
