I strongly suggest not staying here! It kind of ruined our day as we had other things to do in Rotorua...read on! We arrive to the old building only to find both doors locked and uncertain we were at the right place. It seemed like the backpacker used to be there with old signage. After a visit to the i-site...

In the very heart of Rotorua, opposite the bus station and tourist information center is conveniently located this economical hostel. For the price it was probably the cheapest in town. The main contingent of guest staying here are tourists, backpackers, young people, students from all over the world. The atmosphere is conducive to informal acquaintance and communication. A kitchen with... More

They have moved to an existing hostel like building. The place was unclean and dull. Compared to other backpackers, the bed sheets were very unclean, the blankets was un-usable. The room heater does not work at crucial periods. It was dark, old, cold, and mostly unclean. It made the trip to Rotorua miserable.

We found this backpackers in "Petit Futé" Book. I would not recommend this hostel. The staff is helpfull they help their guests to find excursions with discounts rates but rooms, showers and the kitchen (flyers in the kitchen) are really dirty. It was impossible to sleep. the street is very too noisy. I will never go again to this backpackers.

This small guesthouse provides a basic accommodation suitable for backpackers in the centre of Rotorua town.

Guesthouse doesn`t serve breakfast but provide guests with selfservice kitchen facilities. I had brekfast at a... More

It was OK, but nothing special and I wouldn't stay there again. It was basic, the kitchen and toilets were a bit grotty, but ok if you're only staying there for a night or two. It was cheap and was in a good location in Rotorua. It was slightly difficult to find at first as it is quite hidden amongst... More

Very friendly and helpful service. They were able to arrange me a room with very late hours & everything worked smoothly. Place seems really relaxed and clean. Recommended.
