Very comfortable room, cool atmosphere, fantastic staff. Good facilities and lots of stuff on. My only criticism is that the room i was staying in was right next to the loungue area - which was incredibly noisy with music always playing.

I stayed here during three weeks away in New Zealand and Australia. All of the staff were very friendly, had good local knowledge and were more than happy to help with booking trips out. I stayed in a four-bed mixed dorm towards the front of the property, which consisted of two metal bunk beds. The communal bathroom was kept clean.... More

My boyfriend and I loved our stay. Chris was really friendly and it was great to see the owner being so involved with the running of the place. (We appreciated the umbrella!) We booked a double room upstairs, we were situated next to the bathroom, that didn't bother us at all. Showers weren't too bad :) Bed was nice and... More

GOOD-Great place for student/party travelers. The place is priced very well for what it offers: a place to stay without too many rough edges. The staff were very helpful about pointing out the typical stuff to check out and how to get around the city. The internet was free and worked well enough to research stuff to do and check... More

The rooms were spacious and had chairs and a shelf with 2 power bars to charge your electronics. The staff was friendly and were locals so you can ask them about places to go and eat. They do your laundry for the same price as the laundry mate so you don't have to interrupt your plans. They have a nice... More

This is a cheap hostel that gets the job done - nothing fancy but its clean and comfortable enough. Free wifi is a major plus in my book. The twin room we were staying in was quite small but perfectly functional and comfortable. The shared bathroom facilities were clean. The place has a nice vibe. Great location close to the... More

I was a 24 yo solo traveler, and Crash Palace is exactly what I need during my stay at Rotorua. Low priced, clean, and neat hostel. couldn't ask for more. They also have a free spacious carpark. If you dont cook, you can find a number of fast food restaurants nearby. only 5 minutes walk to i-site, sooo... pretty much... More

Loved this place, they have the right idea giving away free pasta and rice as well as a veggie patch out the back!! They try really hard to create an atmosphere there and it pays off. They run an activity every night. It was really fun, clean and hospitable! Only improvement I could suggest is stronger wifi, but I haven't... More
