A great hostel with fantastic kitchen, the surfaces were stainless steel as bright and clean as mirrors, big fridge, freezer and ample food storage. Bedroom & linens were very good, and the shower had good pressure with lots of hot water. Julie, was a very friendly owner. Not far to town centre and all it has to offer with a... More

Third time visit and the Lodge continues to provide outstanding value for money. The Hosts, JB and Albie give everyone clean, secure accommodation for all ages. Local information is freely available for whatever type of activity you would want, be it walks, thrills or simply local living. The away from the town location means that it is quieter, but still...

We ( an older couple) never stayed in a hostel from BBH before. We were surprised about the big clean double room ensuite. Julie is very friendly and hospital and gave us a lot of info about Taupo. After such a nice three nights stay, we definetly go to a BBH in future. Thanks for your service Julie!

We passed through Taupo on a road trip and stayed for one night only. We had booked our overnight stay here online in advance and we were pleased to find that an en-suite double room was in our price range, with our BBH cards. We arrived slightly later than we planned, but the receptionist kept the desk open late to... More

The Backpackers was very terrible! The room smelt bad, the floor was very dirty, the beds are broken and the receptionist was unfriendly..! I'm very disappointed about this backpackers! You have to pay 5$ for the Wifi and you have to change the linen by yourself!!

Not located in the town centre but not too far to walk, although quite a trek back with the shopping. The communal facilities were very good, and were kept clean and tidy at all times. It was a bonus to have a bar in the hostel with very reasonably priced drinks. Julie was a star and nothing was too much... More

This was a nice, cute, quirky hostel. It had a good ambience. A good kitchen. A decent room. Not located too far from city centre. A good group of fellow travellers. And great price. We booked online and got a decent deal. We stayed only for one night, but it was a pleasant stay. We surely recommend.

The rooms are clean and bright; the rest of the hostel is to an equally clean standard and the whole atmosphere is one of a safe, welcoming environment. From the point at which you enter, you are welcomed and feel at home. JB is helpful with identifying suitable local attractions - and some further away, organising transport or tickets where...

Booked 1night in a dorm with my partner. The owner gave us a double at the same price as we were a couple and the place was great. We then booked several more nights and were treated very well, given a lift into town and drank with the staff. I would recommend this hostel if you go to Toupo, good... More

Cant believe it, a hostel where the kitchen closes at 10pm until 7am !! The bar was closed all the time we were there so not really that hostel vibe i'm afraid. The communial kitchen when open was ok.
