Magnificient house and nicely decorated. Very clean. However, our double room was small beacuase of the bunk beds (and without table for our stuffs) and the kitchen is really too little (only one sink for 38 people!). The prices for the wifi are exaggerated. Don’t take the shuttle for the Tongariro Crossing here because it’s 45$ each and if you... More

We were in a self contained unit in september, and loved it! The unit is brand new, well equipped, cosy and we slept like a baby because of the electric blankets :) The staff of the Station Lodge is very helpful and friendly. Because of the rain, we had to come up with a plan B (plan A was skiing).... More

Great place to stay; for the third time! Fantastic, friendly and helpful hosts, and nicely looked after accommodation. Best view from the dining room in the North Island. Looking forward to going back again next year. Recommended!

There is not too many people that get excited about trying to crack the Strava, Ohakune Mountain Road record - the hardest road climb in N.Z . We look forward to seeing you all again next... More

Amazing staff. Lady was super helpful and very nice. We made some wood fire pizza's which turned out great. Kitchen and Lounge were very well set-up. I would recommend staying here. Been to alot of YHA/HI hostels and this was one of my favorites. Also in a great location with nice view of the mountains.

Ignore everybody that moans about the trains; they aren't intrusive and if anything are a little romantic. This hostel boasts a great location and quality facilities in a 'haunted house' type feel. Near to the shops, too.

It's a really nice, cozy hostel and great for links to kiwi rail and for exploring the cycle and walk tracks. I only stayed for a few nights, which was just as well because I was starting to get a big crush on the receptionist.

After having travelled NZ for several months since 2012 and having seen quite a few hostels (mostly good ones!) I've always returned to the Station Lodge for a few and even some more days.

Station Lodge is the ideal combination of an interesting heritage building, a well run accommodation place, a pretty little town, and excellent hosts. While the owners were away on a well earned break, Jerome and Christele kept everything humming along and were impeccable in their hard work and attention to detail keeping the place spotless. The private rooms in the... More
