Staff were extremely friendly and helpful Facilities wise it had all the basics but unfortunately not much else. Room i was in didn't have a wall jack so I had to unplug the tv and use that one, room was extremely small.

I spent three nights here altogether. Two consecutive nights, went to Taupo and stopped over back here for one more night. The manager, Yvonne, is extremely friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Her customer service is fantastic. Booked a three person bedroom but was put into a seven person bedroom. The rooms were nice, had a little bit of space and an... More

I only spent one night here but it was a truly enjoyable experience. I spent the night here as it was easy to get to the Waitomo Caves and Hobbiton. The place itself was really small but the rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and each room has an ensuite bathroom. There's not much space in the rooms itself... More

We stayed in the YHA Hamilton while passing through Hamilton on the Te Araroa Trail and again when we had finished. We couldn't resist going back for more because we had struck up such a lovely comradeship with the manager on our first visit. The hostel rooms are great as they are all en-suite, impeccably clean and our room even... More

The staff is very friendly. The location is not the best but if you've a car, you don't mind. The dormitory rooms are okay. But not too big. The ceiling is very low... If you sleep on the top bed. Take care of your head when you wake up. The shower is very very small. The kitchen is okay, but... More

The hostel is very clean and the communal areas are excellent, the rooms are tiny but tidy, even though the bathroom was a bit too small. The location isn't great, but Yvonne, the owner, will do anything she can to help you and that's always a massive plus.

We spent two nights at the YHA Hamilton and enjoyed it. The dorm was large and clean, just like The kitchen. The beds have been a Real blessing, they were one of the best ones so far. The host Yvonne is just a sweatheart! She just started working here and she is totally in her Job. The People are also... More

I stayed here over the new year for three nights. The rooms were tiny but clean. Noise could be heard through the walls from other guests. Wifi was free which was great. The place is located to far from town especially if you have a heavy bag. Bus route 18 and 21 will get you to the transport centre and... More

YHA Hamilton is a little bland, but I met some lovely people in the kitchen to make up for that. The communal facilities are quite good for a YHA, but my room looked like my first attempt at decorating and the beds are precisely too small to be really annoying for someone 6'3". It's also next to a busy intersection... More

I had a similar thought about the microscopic driveway when I first saw the YHA. Luckily during my stay there were at most 2 other cars in the car park plus my own car so that made getting in and out a whole lot easier. I was met by a kind lady, and even though I had paid for a... More
