Fat Cat Travellers Community
Fat Cat! Great fun, great community, great hostel! Off the beaten path! Small, eco-backpackers in west Auckland!
Welcome to our little Eden! The Fat Cat Backpackers is part of the Fruit Vans Community Project, sharing the same 100% Organic city farm!
We have a four bed dorm room with garden view, parking for vans and camping.
We have a great community at home; all the travellers who work at the Fruit Vans Farm also live at the backpackers, so you'll walk straight into a warm and friendly travelling community! We have pizza nights, communal meals and you're always welcome to join us on our outings to the beach. With all the travellers at home you will find many friends to give you advice about travelling in New Zealand!
We have free bikes and walking trails which are great to explore - you're also welcome to help yourself to the beautiful vegetables in the garden!
If you're buying or selling your van, you're welcome to use our cleaning products and tools to create your perfect home! We can even take you to the recycling centre where you can find cheap wood for your construction.
Warm, welcoming community located on 100% organic city farm. 25 minutes from popular surf beaches (closer than any other Auckland hostel!), 10 minutes to spectacular Waitakere Ranges National Park where you can treck from one to several days, 600m from the train line and 30 minutes to the city centre - set in beautiful, lush gardens, we await you with a smile and a warm cup of tea! Eco-friendly, Backpacker-friendly!

From the Airport - 2 options:
1) Take the Airport Express Bus (www.airbus.co.nz - $16, one hour) to New Market and then the Western Waitakere Train line to Sunnyvale Train Station (www.maxx.co.nz - $6, 30 minutes). The total cost is $24, with a journey time of an hour and a half.
2) Take the Super Shuttle (www.supershuttle.co.nz). The cost is $51 per person and it takes about an hour.
From the city centre by train:
If you want to take the train here, take the Western train line from Britomart (central Auckland) in the direction of Waitakere. Stop at Sunnyvale station - from there it's a short walk (about 600m) to our home. Then follow directions as below.
On foot from Sunnyvale Train Station:
Walking back in the direction of Auckland, going towards the traffic light on the bridge on Seymour Road. Turn left onto Seymour Road. Then turn right onto Rangeview Road. Go right and cross over the train tracks. Turn left onto Sherrybrooke Place; we're at the very end of the road at 2A. Follow the driveway and you will go past the fruit sheds to arrive at the house. Say hello to everyone you meet along the way, we are very friendly in New Zealand!
We look forward to seeing you.
Please note that our street is very small and not well-known. No-one knows our street so they won't be able to give you directions - your best bet is to print the map above and bring it with you!
