We stayed here on a recent get away trip from Wellington and absolutely loved it!! The staff was very friendly, always smiling, and gave great recommendations for activities and hot spots around town. Staying in a double room with en suite we found the room to be larger than expected and a great value for money. We really enjoyed the personal touches as well, the painted out door tables, laundry room, and kitchen almost felt as if staying at a mates place rather than a backpackers. Over all a great experience and must stay for anyone traveling through Taupo!!!
