I stayed in 5 hostels making my way across the North Island and this was definitely the best one of the 5. Clean, large kitchen, free wifi in the rooms & a fantastic staff. Laundry facility were also clean and reasonably priced. Many older people & not just the 18-23 year age group.

Went there this December with family and had good stay all together. They have pretty well equipped kitchen, series of bathrooms, a large common area and high speed internet. Only thing I would suggest to my readers is be careful with the room you book and beds they have. The all beds in my room had shaky frame and were...

Host was very nice. Place is clean and the kitchen is pretty complete with the utensils. Got a pool table if you are bored. You can also book some activities through them and they are happy to do it for you.

The hostel was clean. Staff were helpful and friendly. Our kids enjoyed the tennis, soccer table and free wifi. Sauna was not working. Kitchen had everything you need for cooking. Staff were helpful for booking things and you get a discount if you book through them rather than directly. A quiet, basic hostel that for the money was a great...

Finally a hostel where the owners have some common sense with the interior. Clean carpets and nice bright colors, and most of all, it was reassuringly clean all around. The lounge area is nicely separated from the rooms, allowing you to chat, browse the web and watch tv until late without disturbing the other guests. One of the better hostels...

This place was absolutely spotless, and great value for price. The facilities were very good and clean - plenty of showers and equipment in the kitchen. The host was very helpful and funny with lots of information and anecdotes. She also gave us discount vouchers for attractions in Rotorua. It was very quiet the night we were there with just...

Excellent hostel for travelers that like peace and family environment. Very clean and amazing service. It is a little a bit far of downtown, but is not big deal. 15 min on foot you are there without problem. Recommend!!

Located on a quiet street near the Aquatic centre and opposite the park, it's only a ten minute walk to the centre of town. After lengthy research this seemed to be the cheapest place to stay in town. We stayed in a double with shared facilities. The room was basic and clean. There were only eight people staying that night...
