An amazing place to stay everyone is so friendly, the staff and people travelling through. Nothing is too much trouble if you need help with anything the reception staff are happy to help. The hostel itself has plenty to offer: a sundeck, bbq, well equiped kitchen, tv room and cheap laundry!! Would reccommend to anybody staying in taupo for a... More

I've stayed here one night cos Base was fully booked. And I wish I came here from the beginning. Rooms might not be as good as at Base but they are clean and comfy. What made the biggest difference was a lovely lady in reception. Very helpful and extremely nice :-)

Highly Recommend for those who enjoy the night life, not the type of place where you would wanna relax. A great huge balcony to enjoy food & drinks with a great view before exploring the township. Bars & Clubs are right underneath the place so you don't have far to walk to get a drink or hot food. Staff was... More

Generally at backpackers you're greeted with the run down of the place, check out time and highlights of the area. None of the above was provided. Fair enough I guess. A Pasifika women who seemed to work there closed the kitchen at will. Provided a grumpy explanation of why she had closed it and was zero help when asked where... More

I stayed in a double room with ensuite, which was fairly basic but comfortable and not too small - pretty good for the price. The kitchen was big and well equipped, and the staff were really helpful. There's a good range of facilities such as laundry, internet etc. Only downside was that it was a bit noisy - I needed... More

Go Global had the best rate in town for us (we book doubles typically) and the staff was spot-on perfect! Everyone was friendly and keenly interested in helping us make the most out of our time in Taupo - and with no commissions on the line, they fight just as hard as we do to get the best deals. We...
