Stayed 1 night in one of their apartments then upgraded to 2 bed chalet with spa pool. Both are good value and had everything we needed. Short walk to Powderhorn pub and cafes. Hosts are very nice and very helpful. Would definitely stay again.

We really loved the Lodge. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the rooms were clean and tidy as were the kitchen/lounge areas. The kitchen is well stocked and the recycling bins are a great idea. There are plenty of activities on offer locally, not just skiing or snowboarding! We hired bikes from the lodge and did an awesome 16km... More

As a regular to this YHA I love it simply for its great facilities. They have done a refurbish and there's gorgeous, native timber throughout. Everyone needs to enjoy in a hot tub after a day on the slopes, the cosy lounge is perfect for apres ski down time and the shared kitchen and fireplace is superb. Always friendly staff,... More

We stayed in a two bedroom chalet for four nights. The chalet was equipped with a heat pump and heaters in bedrooms so was very cosy. We also had our own spa pool, which was great after a day at the snow. Located at the north end of Ohakune , it is very handy to Turoa Skifield and only an... More

For the price we assumed it would be a pokey little room - but the 1 bed apartment exceeded our expectations and more. Big rooms and all of the appliances - super soft bed & pillows! Even a good sized 'backyard' for the kids to run around safely. I can't think of a better value apartment that we've ever stayed... More

The place is awesome apart from the length of the beds. My feet were touching the feet of the person in the bunk bed next to me. I am only 5 10 so its not like I am tall. The location is great, there are a few restaurants/bars nearby.

I stayed in an apartment for one night with my parter. The apartment was very clean, modern and stylish. The queen bed was super comfy and we both had the best sleep! The bathroom is nice and the kitchen had everything you need and more. I highly recommend staying at the station lodge.

Lovely apartment for two. Clean, modern, all amenities. Great value. Super close to mountain road up to Turoa ski field. Owners and staff were lovely. Close to a few restaurants (awesome pizza parlour down the road!) and a short drive from the main Ohakune township. 10/10 will be staying here again.

We stayed for two nights here so we could go snowboarding up at Turoa skifield on Mt Ruapehu. The room we had was a two person cabin which was well suited to the purpose. It was provided with a heater and was even already turned on when we got there so it was nice & warm. Only complaint was that... More

The owners, Jane and Darren and the kids, are just a great family, more welcoming and enthusiastic. Rooms are clean and comfy, and the inside of the two main rooms have been done recently. Very beautifully and warm. The fire place and the spa pool are a must when you come back from a cold skiing day! Lots to enjoy... More
