Thank you so much for all the lovely comments ..... Nice, relaxed and awesome guests, all of you guys make the Farm Hostel what it is.


We extended our stay for 4 days. Excellent place!!! Best price-services relation!!! A 10 is not enough, should be a 12, compared to other 10s. Free Wifi/Internet, free tea coffee, dishwasher and fantastic hosts!!!

A wonderfully relaxing place, so comfortable, clean and friendly host.

We came here the first time just after we arrived in NZ and were greatly welcomed by Claes, Aya & Steffen ... The Hostel itself is unique. I mean, where do you get free Wifi and oranges, fresh free range eggs, lots of cute animals, a swimming pool, a huge lounge with eucalyptus floor, the probably best equippes kitchen in NZ. We loved the evenings in front of the cosy log fire sharing stories with the hosts and other travellers, reading a book or petting Nika the dog. We really hope we can come back...one day.

This was the best hostel we have ever stayed in! The hosts were very friendly and helpful! They even gave us free oranges from their orchard. The atmosphere was very relaxing and peaceful. Very clean and very homey. We absolutely loved it and would go back :)

I loved this place. Spotless, welcoming, great location. Booked a couple of nights by internet from the UK, stayed a week and was sad to leave...
Sandra, February 2012

Everything about this hostel is wonderful. Beautiful and peaceful location, excellent kitchen, pool, free Wi-Fi(!) and a friendly & organised host. We stayed in a lovely cottage surrounded by orange trees. Sorry to leave, will definitely return.

Absolutely amazing experience. Steffen and Aya were exceptionally helpful, friendly and generous. The animals on the property are safe and a lot of fun to watch and pet. Not to mention the citrus orchard is absolutely idyllic. The cottage itself was comfortable, spacious, and well appointed. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to see the true Kerikeri beyond trodden tourist routes.

This is a fabulous place to stay. Utterly idyllic setting wit in orange orchards, with dogs, chickens, a couple of pigs and a sheep! Room is cosy and comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped. Inside is cosy and there's lots of decking to sit out on on a summers day. All in all, is a very nice place to relax and is well positioned. The hosts are also really nice and helpful.

Excellent stay over the Christmas break. Friendly staff and atmosphere, peaceful location, lovely animals and one of the most important aspects; it's beautiful wooden interior. 10/10!
Gill, January 2012

Had a lovely christmas here with very friendly stuff that uses to give very good information about the region, the kitchen has everything you can dream about

Peaceful calm and so friendly and an idyllic setting. Loved the chooks and the pigs, Loved the free coffee, tea and help youself shelves. The pool was very inviting after a hot day. Wished I could stay longer.
Lynne, January 2011

I loved this hostel. Staff were completely amazing. Gave me a ride to and from bus stop, nightly supermarket runs, even to hot springs. Beautiful and spotless facilities. Great cooking supplies. Free internet! Amazing people. Can't say enough.
Kyle, December 2010

spotless clean, cozy bed, very cute Kune Kune pigs, sweet tangelos, fast internet, friendly people... thank you Steffen and Aya for your hospitality!
Alice, November 2010

A beautiful, relaxing to stay in a lovely location. I was greeted by a mini pot-bellied pig when I arrived and treated to free organic oranges from the orchard outside. The place is spotlessly clean, friendly and cosy and welcoming. There's even a dishwasher so you don't even have to wash up after cooking dinner. Homely and full of character, I'd highly recommend it.
Andrea, November 2010

The best hostel to stay in Kerikeri area! Super comfy living room, clean house! Free internet!

Sarah and Shannon, August 2010

Awesome place - nice atmosphere and comfortable beds.
I'd highly recommend it.
Amit, July 2010

This hostel was gorgeous. The couple who run it are friendly and welcoming, taking you into their home, and telling you about the farm and their mini-pigs. It was like staying in a cottage B & B. The room was lovely and warm, the bed comfy. the bathroom was large and clean. They have a wood fire to curl up in front of and we all had dinner together. They have the best eggs I've tasted in a long time from their free range hens. The place was just brilliant.
Elaine Omand, July 2010

Great hostel and Steffen and Claes are brilliant. Very helpful and really good tips what places to visit - not the touristy spots! Unlimited free Internet and Wi-Fi. Cute chickens and new arrivals Kunekune pigs* Fresh kiwis and oranges daily :-)

Lovely place to stay. The very clean pool and big shaded deck as well as the orange trees are the highlights. The free wireless is good also. Everything else is as expected for a highly scored hostel. Thank you very much.

Very nice hostel, excellent atmosphere (quiet relaxing), excellent staff. Would stay here again
Rory Mcloughlin, December 2009

Kerikeri Farm Hostel is brilliant. It had a really chilled out, cool vibe and the owners are brilliant. If you need anything, they're more than happy to help and give tips on things to do around the area. All in all, really good and excellent value.
Richard Garrett, November 2009

Very nice hostel. Cheap, big and clean individual room. Nice oranges and eggs. In 10-15 min. you can go to the village by cycle. All the day free internet and wifi. Great hostel.

Kerikeri Farm Hostel is one of the nicest and best kept places I have ever stayed at. Lovely set-up, beautiful surroundings and absolutely spotless. Too bad I didn't have time to stay any longer. Thank you!
Brigitte Stamm, October 2009

One of the best, most fun hostels I've stayed in! My two friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the hammock and the fresh oranges and figs we picked with our hostess. The pool looked great, the dogs were sweet, the farmhouse was lovely and super quiet, and the overall facilities were awesome! Would almost make the trip back just to stay here again as a getaway!
Amanda Hutchenson, March 2009

Best hostel we stayed in, and been travelling for 10 months!! Very clean rooms and bathrooms, extremely friendly and helpful staff - stayed for 7 nights and definitely would stay here again and will recommend to anybody...
