The Hostel focuses on connecting students to Jesus Christ, to each other and to a new church fellowship in Auckland. It provides a safe place for the students to succeed in their studies, to develop responsibility for themselves and to prepare for flatting in the next year.

“Banter was great, community was amazing Kevin/10. Wow”


“One of the best experiences of my life. Fantastic facilities, an amazing support system and community, and staffed by two of the most loving Christians I have ever had the good fortune to meet.  The friends and experiences I gained here are ones I pray never to forget. I strongly recommend this to any Christians who wish to study full-time in Auckland.”


“It was a great time with good people”


“Huge fan of the work they put in for the students.  The many signs, the great food, and that “the couch” made it for me.”


“A great transitional home. You won’t want to leave, great atmosphere with like minded uni students.”
