About Fat Cat Travellers Community
We run our eco-backpackers’ accommodation the way that a hostel should be run – like a home. We have an old farm house surrounded by lush gardens and vegetable patches that we have converted into a self-sufficient eco paradise. We live by the mantra: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Consequently, we have used salvaged materials to construct some awesome facilities that you are welcome to use during your stay:
• Veggie garden
• Outdoor solar shower and fire bath
• Tree swing
• Fireplace and BBQ areas
Our place is part WWOOFing farm and part backpackers; a vibrant, varied and friendly community built around our home and gardens, where we grow vegetables which allow us to create colourful and delicious communal meals every day. Backpackers are invited to share in our daily breakfast, lunch and dinners ($3 Breakfast, $6 Lunch, $6 Dinner)!
All of our rooms have garden view and plenty of sunlight. We have parking for vans and a dedicated space for camping.
You'll walk straight into a warm and welcoming community. You are invited to join us for pizza nights, communal meals and on our outings to the beach. We have bikes and walking trails which are great to explore - you're also welcome to help yourself to the beautiful vegetables in the garden!
We are 25 minutes from the popular west coast surf beaches (closer than any other Auckland hostel), 10 minutes to spectacular Waitakere Ranges National Park where you can trek from one to several days and just 30 minutes to the city centre.
You too will think you have found Eden!
Fat Cat Eco Backpackers has the following accommodation types:
Each has large windows and view of our sunny organic garden. All linen provided :)
Private Double Room:
Private room with garden views and all day long sunlight.
Bring your own tent, we have a dedicated space for camping.
Have your own van? No problem, we have plenty of space for you to park and sleep in your own van, while having access to all the facilities.
We also have cosy private garden caravans for up to two people.

2A Sherrybrooke Place,
We are tucked out of the way of the hustle and bustle of the city centre – truly a great place for relaxing and unwinding!
Fat Cat Eco-Backpackers is only a 600m walk to the train station, where you can catch a 30min ride straight to the city centre. Trains run several times per hour. We are seven minutes' bike ride from Henderson, which is full of shops, cafes, movies, banks and a post office.
We are also located only 25mins away from the popular surf beach of Piha (closer than any other Auckland hostel!) and only 10mins away from the spectacular and incredible Waitakere Ranges National Park where you can trek for a day or even a whole week!
So if you would like to come and join in our wonderful community and share your time with other wonderful travellers and students then we happily welcome you! You can book online, or just drop us an email or a text :)
