Flash packers is the way to go. Grab One you are on to a winner here with these accommodation providers. Speed up and streamline the check in accuracy and clean up the recommended places to stay on Ohakune. Friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and travelled ownership. Value for money, beds perhaps a tad too hard for after Tongariro bones. Modern, clean, tidy... More

Just returned from a two night break to walk the Tongariro crossing and stayed at LKNZ lodge. We were lucky enough to pick up a grab one voucher and I have to say it was excellent value for money. Clean, modern, comfortable and relaxed, and a well earned opportunity to relax our aching bones in the hot tub after our... More

Our last trip to LKNZ at the turn of new year 2015 was a successful and economical as usual. During the stay I accidentally threw away some parts of my son's expensive Go-pro camera which were sitting in a bowl of rice after it got a soaking. We realised I had done this after we left and volunteered to come... More

We stayed here for one night in December. The staff was most welcoming and offered us great tips on hiking and local activities. The room with ensuite was a bit small, but enough for 4. The Mountain View from our balcony was stunning. The communal kitchen was good, with a large fridge and all the tools you need to make... More

Great overnight transit stop on way home from summer break. Friendly staff and guests. Would be a perfect weekend lodging for winter skiing break as central heating and double glazing look like you will be warm and dry at end of each day.

Modern property, tons of space, clean, nice and central, warm, and the staff were very helpful. Plenty of outdoor activities right on your doorstep e.g. Mountain biking, tongariro crossing and ski/snowboarding. Only negative would be the pillows were really hard.. possibly replace with softer ones..Highly recommend staying at LKNZ if you are planning a trip to Ohakune.

The money you spend per night is for a dorm room not worth it. You will get terrible sleep because the matrasses are old and very uncomfortable. The room is very tiny to stay with four people in it. It is noisy on the evenings and some of the toilets and showers are outside. Very frizzing on this time of... More
