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...

This was a charming hostel with a spa pool. Friendly staff and clean, shower took an age to warm up but other than that it was lovely. Staff were totally helpful and well informed and took the effort to help organize and keep clean

So much hot water! In the spa, a real spring where the water is changed daily, in the showers, ... lots of space to meet people, near the center of the city, a walk away of the park and waterside where you can see the mud and suffer pools/fumes... I enjoyed my stay!

So I booked a twin room for me and a mate for a stay here for two days. I didn't expect much and thought it would be like one of those backpackers in Auckland. Apparently, I ended up having an amazing stay. The rates are cheaper than any other place, it was quiet probably due to the less people in...
