This was am affordable centrally located Hostel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It's also nice that they offer a snack meal at 7 pm every night in the bar next door. It's a little more intimate and comfortable than other hostels in the area since the rooms are set up a little differently with private kitchens in bathrooms per 3-4 rooms. I'd recommend staying here.

I stayed for 2 nights over the Easter long weekend. It was a nice but old hostel. The location is fantastic, really close everything including bars and clubs.I arrived at 6am and went to the wrong hostel. Nomads has 2 hostels located one block apart and I accidentally when to the other one first but the staff member kindly redirected me to the other one. They have reception manned 24/7 which was good and really big common area on Level 1 which my friends and I were able to get out of the cold, charge our phones and get a bit of sleep. I stayed in a shared 4 room dorm, the rooms were small but had enough space, there was only 2 lockers but 4 beds and one of the lockers were broken. Each level has a small common area and kitchen with a fridge which was great. There is a small bar downstairs which was disappointingly closed on Good Friday (which was understandable) but also Easter Sunday! It might have had something to do with the NZ laws with selling drinks but still disappointing since it's a hostel! Staff were friendly and I would stay here again.

Noisy at night. The refrigerator smelled horrible like there was a ton of mold. Couldn't use refrigerator because it grossed me out. The bed is relatively uncomfortable. Its a small mattress on top of a hard metal bed frame. Didn't provide good wifi option either. It was ok. Relatively clean and in a decent location.
Response from the owner - a month ago
Hi Adam, Thanks for taking the time to place feedback on your stay and we are sorry the fridge was not smelling great. The fridges in all apartments are cleaned twice weekly but our housekeeping manager has shown the fridge in the apartment you stayed in a total deforst and deep clean! We wish you happy travels!

I stayed here for a cheap getaway in March 2015. Hostel’s location couldn’t be better - 25 minutes by bus from the airport. Almost everywhere else was within easy walking distance of Nomads Fat Camel Backpackers. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I had a spacious and comfortable female dorm overlooking the street. First hostel with free snacks at bar - a great opportunity to converse and compare notes and stories with other travellers. Yummy nachos and penne carbonara ;) All guests can use well-equipped kitchen (fridge, oven, microwave, electric kettle) and laundry room (extra-paid). The only cons: no wi-fi, no breakfast. Value for money - especially with BBH Card. On the whole really enjoyed my stay and would be happy to go again

My boyfriend and I satyed here for 2 nights - we absolutely loved it!! Mitch and all the other staff were brilliant. Our room was clean as was the kitchen and communal area we shared with just a few other rooms. Good showers, great bar, amazing location. The building is a little old, but the price is brilliant. Definitely reccomend.

This is a great place to stay. For me I can give the following ratings. Security five stars because every one who comes in should come through the reception so unauthorized people cannot enter the hostel which is a very good thing about this hostel. Cleanliness is five stars. The rooms are cleaned three times a day. Every floor has two kitchens and plenty of utensils so you do not want to waste time going to a central kitchen which is a very good thing about this hostel. They also have additional bathroom and toilets situated all through the stairwell so I have never waited so long to have a shower which is a very good thing about this hostel. You are given a blanket, a bed sheet and a pillow and the house keeping staff are always ready to change them whenever you feel them dirty if you are staying longer, if you put a note on the bed if you are not in the room when the house keeping is done, they will nicely make that for you which is a very good thing about this hostel. The hostel is centrally located in between two major supermarket and very close to the queen street which is the main street of Auckland. The fort street where Fat Camel is situated has plenty of clubs you can find lots of events all the days in the week.There is a little walking distance from Fat Camel to Britomart transport center. There is a very large rest area in level one which is really a nice place if you have something to study. The hostel has really fast internet and they give you 1 hour free wifi everyday and also there is public WIFi access point situated very close to the hostel. So you can have free internet all through the day. You are served a nice free snack every night from 7pm to 8 pm that you will find nowhere in any of the hostels in Auckland. You can also find plenty of free food in the free food shelf in every floor as many customers stay and leave the hostel all most every day. There are people from all over the world living in this hostel and you can meet them all and have a very good time in the bar and entertainment center situated behind the reception. You will make a lot of friends here for sure. It is also a quiet place and I love the no window rooms for them being so cheaper, darker and so quiet and you can have a good night sleep in the day time. The prices are comparatively cheaper and they offer you so much of things that you will have the feel good factor that you had a cost effective service for your money. I lived in this hostel from April 2012 to June 2012 and returned again in April 2015 after 3 years because for me this is the best place to stay. The staff is so friendly, cheerful and helpful. They provide you an excellent service. If you have any complaint, the top management look into the situation and provide you the best solution without being bias which is a very good thing as you need good security as a traveler. When considering all the above good things, I think that you will find no place like this to stay and enjoy your time. they also have a travel desk providing all the information about the places that has cultural and historical interest. I recommend this hostel to anyone who comes to Auckland and wish all the best and long life for Nomads Fat Camel backpacker Hostel and Bar.

We can not complain about the staff, as they were exceptionally understanding when we said we could not stay there. We didn't realise just how much we had been effected by the earth quakes (we live in Chch) until we got up to the 6th floor, saw the cracks & felt the floor moving! I guess if the maintenance had been kept up it wouldn't have been a problem but to see cracks & the feeling of movement from the floor, both girls were starting to panic & I was surprised at just how much I needed to get out there! I realise that young overseas people stay there, but surely they must wander about the safety of the building? But thank you so much for giving us our refund. I was pleasantly surprised. Many thanks, Lexy & Family

Stormy Night, with a window that didn't close.... wasn't the greatest sleep but the bed was decent and the sheets were clean. You get what you pay for - Apartment layout is a nice surprize. Clean and Tidy shared areas.

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. http://bit.ly/tnztongariro
