We arrived at this place and were taken care of very professionally with great recommendations as to what to do in rotorua (we were after the bike trails). Very friendly and helpful staff. Facilities are old but very clean and the nicest area is the garden. The cat living there gives it a very relaxed and homely atmosphere. One of...

We booked this hostel very last minute and they had a private double available - fantastic! You'd very easily walk past this place without noticing - it's right in the town centre and all the main shopping streets are a 5-10 minute walk away. One staff member who checked us in early was exceptional in his help - we can't...

My girlfriend and I have been staying in Rotorua and in this hostel for almost half a year now. We originally came over for a catering gig I had over the weekend and absolutely loved the ambiance. From the moment we walked in to ask some questions regarding the hostel, the vibe felt right. The hostel is comfortable, clean and...

I just booked a twin for me and a friend staying and didn't have much expectations. We visited last July and it was pretty quiet. The staff here was really friendly and quite helpful guiding us with attractions around and even providing us discount vouchers. The place is pretty good. The rooms are clean and neat and the staff is...

Booked a basic single room for 5 nights, the room was small but worth the price for privacy. There were hangers, drawers, a desk and chair by the bed. Comfy bed though it can get hot/stuffy inside the room. Kitchens and bathrooms were clean, staff were friendly. Cheaper to do laundry here compared to other hostels ($2 each for washing/drying)....

We saved more money than we spent on accommodation here for one day in Rotorua by taking up the backpackers discounts from spa lodge. The room was clean and secure and the atmosphere was friendly. The spa was also cute. Definitely go to Tamaki Village with the spa lodge discount, it was spectacular.

They have a natural spa pool. I dont even feel I have to say anything else. Staff were incredible, plus the other guests were friendly and open. They offer a TV room, internet room and two kitchenettes. The rooms themselves are clean and spacious, well taken care of, including the bathrooms. Endless hot water too! It was in a really...
