The bloke at the reception said "This isn't the Ritz" - I was expecting bad things, but after he'd shown me the room I wondered what the fuss was about. Clean room, with towels and bedding provided, clean toilets and a decent kitchen. Of course, some of the equipment is old, and the paintwork is peeling etc, but it's really... More

When I found this cabin accommodation at $30 per night I wondered if I might be making a big mistake booking it. But in a destination with as much to offer as Taupo, how much time does one spend in their room . As long as it's clean and comfortable right. This ticked those boxes being comfortable, modest and clean.... More

Stayed here for one night on my trip around NZ. Booked the place for its fantastic value, we paid $37 for a night in their backpackers cabin - a price that's just unheard of! Arrived and the owner was so so helpful, told us all of the local spots and the best places to go. Helped us with everything -... More

Our cabin was very small, filthy and had a lot of ants. There was a syringe between the upper bunk wire wove and the mattress (no needle with it thank goodness). The toilet / shower block wasn't clean and the hand dryer unit on wall was broken. The kitchen was a mess and I doubt if you could have keep... More

The owner is very friendly and a great source of information - put us on to a few local attractions we would otherwise have missed on our flying visit through. We also thought the room was great value for the money and we'll maintained. Would definitely stay there again.

My parents and I booked 2 cabins here. We were arriving late in the evening and leaving early the next morning so didn't want to book an expensive place. However the place was filthy. My room was full of ants making a trail from the fridge to a hole in the ceiling, the beds were falling apart. My parents were... More

This is budget accommodation but our unit is tidy and clean. We received fresh towels every day and there was a little space to sit outside during the hotter parts of the day and into the evening. It was quiet and fairly close to town. The furniture was a little tired we all slept ok. The couch needed respringing. If... More

This place is definitely the budget end of the spectrum but was clean, comfortable and quiet. It was definitely better value than the last place we stayed in Taupo. The bathroom in the studio motel unit was tiny but if you were going with a group you could just overflow to the shared ablutions block. As there were only the... More
