    Everything was so dirty, the kitchen, the bedroom, the bathroom. The smell everywhere was disgusting. The building was almost empty because we went in a low season but even with few people it wasn't good. The bar next to the hostel was also a disaster....More

    Honestly, do I need to say something else??! Great vibes, big and clean kitchen, nice and tidy rooms. Great place to stay while traveling in Rotorua! At night, even if it's raining and cold, you can still chill out in the hot pool! Loved it.

    Nice hostel, quite cheap at approx $28 a night. Beds were comfy and each had a bed light for convenience. Seemed to only be one plug socket for 8 people so make sure you pack an extension cable. Heated pool if you wanted it. Kitchen...More
