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... More

The large kitchen is very well equipped with multiple fridges, lots of pots, pans etc and is spotless. The rooms are great and the showers have... More

We found this jewel of a hostel on our way to YHA in Rotorua. It is located on the other side of the city park so while it may seem far away, it's actually quite close to the shops / down town, only separated by the city park. The park itself is a hot springs / sulfur wonderland in its... More

I stayed here for two nights in June as part of a six week tour of NZ. Sarah, who runs the hostel, couldn't be nicer or more welcoming! However the first night I was there, only one other person was staying, and the second night it was just me, which I felt was such a shame. Rotorua was a bit... More

We stayed in a double room for 3 nights and got a discount for staying the 3rd. The room, living room and kitchen were clean and tidy. Very comfortable beds and the pillows were like luxurious hotel pillows! Table, chair, mirrow and closet for your clothes inside the room, which was nice. Free FAST internet, which we could use as...
