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

I was there for Mardi gras. Hostel located in the entrance of the city. Nice place, I think facilities clean usually but not really on the morning after the party, but we can't really blamed them ! Nice living room with a big tv, rooms small but comfortable. Staff nice and helpful. The bar/cafe is good, pretty cheap but don't... More

Very nice, clean and comfortable place to stay. It's near to the National Park. The staff are also very friendly. I recommend the breakfast there: delicious and save you some time. Certainly will come back! Highly recommend!

I'm sure this place is buzzing in the winter with skiers (there is a bar onsite) but when we visited in autumn it was a really relaxed place that ticked all the boxes for our family. The 5 bedder was great, the bathroom massive, and with the downstairs kitchen/lounge area and another lounge on the first floor, we had everything... More

I noticed the sign outside described the lodge as a "flashpackers." I would consider this a very accurate description. The accommodation was basic, but everything was modern, clean and tidy. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bar/cafe/lounge in the main lodge was a very warm environment with a fussball and pool table. I would recommend this place for people... More

Great place to stay the lodge is very modern, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic, however the showers are amazing and just what is required after hiking Tongariro. I would be happy to stay here again.

We were very impressed with Amanda and Martin. They are full of energy and genuinely enjoy people. They were friendly and informative and their place runs smoothly with a nice relaxed vibe. The bikes were great and their food was delicious and very well priced. We were pleasantly surprised, as people in our fifties, to feel welcome and that we... More
