A brilliant hostel. We made use of the movie room and watched a few DVD's on a rainy day. The facility's are good. The beds are super comfy and there is plenty of room in the dorms. The staff are all great. Definitely reccomend !

We stayed here as a big touch group. There may have been about 5 touch teams consisting of 14 players max and coaches and managers. They gave us beautiful dinners every night, wonderful healthy kai for breakfast and an even awesomer packed lunch as we were away all day. It was also a great price for what needed. The pools...

Stay there on February just for one night, the staff was so good and helpful, all the facilities were tidy and clean, such a good place to stay if you are backpacker, just try to keep ready the pool at 8:00am.

It's a bit of a walk from the iSite where the buses drop off, but I like to walk so it was just fine. I got honked at and a few times a couple of kind of dodgy looking men approached me while I was eating at Oppies and that made me nervous as a single female traveller and that... More

The hostel is great value for money, and very clean with friendly staff and excellent facilities, including a comfy bed, decent sized 2 person room, 2 pools, and a spa pool (though we didn't try it). However, this was one of the noisiest hostels I've ever been to. We could hear nearly every word of our neighbouring room through the... More

We stayed for a week and it was a great place. The staff are friendly/helpful and it is very clean. SUCH comfy beds which, as a backpacker, I appreciated very much! If we are back in rotorua again I would stay here for sure!!

Had a fun time at four canoes. Spent the time there on a school trip and it was so much fun. The pool was lovely. Rooms were great. Comfy beds which comes in handy after a hard day of being a tourist around rotorua. Diffenitly go back if I had the chance 😋

We stayed here with a group of football teams. Meals were nutritious and delicious and catered for all our teams needs. Accommodation was fantastic! Facilities were fabulous. I highly recommend this place. Staff were just so welcoming and a pleasure, very family friendly orientated atmosphere and so nice to hear staff laughing all day.
