This is a really awesome Hostel. We stayed there for 4 days. The beds where really good. Everything was clean. The owner was very friendly, he gave us a discount and also money for one night back, because we had to leaver one day earlier.

We arrived here on a Friday afternoon, really nice day, and we were greeted by this guy who was really cool and friendly. We didn't get any cash that day, as his EFTPOS machine was down, so we needed to get some cash, however, he still let us see our room for the night, showed us everything in the lodge...

Stayed at the property for two nights in Taupo. Very comfortable, close to town centre with all facilities. Notable features are the common room with a good library and a well kept kitchen / dining place for common use.

Taupo is expensive even in motels, so a room for two for $70 got the job done. Rue was super helpful, albeit sleepy and got our room ready for us early so we could get some rest after having driven most of the night. We slept well and were ready to take on the day. Having some breakfast in the...

If you're looking for decent, budget accommodation in Taupo, look no further. Basic but warm, clean and friendly. Rue is a pleasant chap to deal with. I had a self contained room and a free run of the facilities. The only slight problem I noted ... the en-suite wall basin in room 3 was too small ... but then again,...

Easy walk to main streets, like most other lodges around. Car park available, communal rooms were warm and homely. We stayed in a double ensuite which was basic but comfy enough. Host was helpful. Overall this place was good.

Great for our little stop over. Basic but functional room. Room kept cool even though it was a very hot day which was good. Only negative was that there were a loud family in the room next to us and we could hear them quite a lot through the wall but it didn't stop us sleeping so all good.
