          This was our first hostel in NZ, and not really what we were expecting. It's more of a community than a hostel, with lots of wwoofers and "volunteers" around. Everyone was very friendly, but it felt like the place was right out of the movie...More

          Hello, I am flying into Auckland on the morning of 28th and I am very keen to stay at your community guesthouse. I am very into sustainable living and caring for the environment so I can comfortable say I would enjoy to part take. I am Wondering if it is possible to work here for accomodation as I am very low on money. Would it be possible to work for long term or short term? Thank you Chelsea Gladstone Chels_c33@hotmail. com

          Erm I saw people who were there working for accommodation but I think it's via woofing as they had to sell vegetables in the day. Maybe email them?
