We had a room with 2 single beds and a bathroom. It was very basic and very small. The beds had seen better days and needed a pillow top to stop the springs digging into me. The weather was bitterly cold and the heating did struggle a bit. It was a bit boring trapped in a small room trying to... More

Wonderful location, great atmosphere and very friendly staff. The only thing that lets it down is the quality of their beds. All rooms including premium have only double beds which have seen better days. It is almost impossible for 2 adults to have a decent night sleep. If you are tall you might as well sleep on the floor... Would... More

Even the droms in the place are nice. Got an awesome vibe. Restaurant and communal cooking kitchen which is nice, not matter what your budget. Hot tub is a huge plus. The lady on the reception who I had when checking in was incredibly and friendly.

Stayed here two nights to do the Tongariro Crossing. Rooms small but practical. Water pressure in the shower amazing!! Having hot tubs available took away the initial aches and pains. Superb meal in the restaurant. Door to door service with transport to and from the walk. Equipment available for hire - thanks JJ - the poles made all the difference... More

Perfect for the Tongariro Crossing accommodation. Good facilities and attentive staff. We processed without any problems excursion to Tongariro, that it seems every morning exits the hotel van. The only problem we had in the room was dirt in the room with many insects and the room was pretty tight for 4 adults, and there are only 2 chairs to... More

My wife and I spent the weekend at The Park Hotel when doing the Tongariro Crossing. The hotel also has a Backpackers section. The hotel rooms were clean and very simple. The furnishings were old but adequate. The standout of the hotel were the helpful staff. All seem to be young foreigners travelling and working. They had a very good... More

We stayed here for one night after we did the Tongariro Crossing. The hostel is ideally located for the trek. We stayed in a 6 bed dorm. The room was clean and was en suite which was great. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room for backpacks. The kitchen was clean, spacious and fully equipped. There were... More

Staff were super friendly. Rooms were good size, shower was hot. Guest kitchen available and fridge and tea kettle in room. Nice "common areas" for eating, reading. Hot tubs and BBQs also available. Good location for exploring Tongariro and Whanganui. Wi-Fi was at a cost.
