We stayed at the tiki lodge for two nights. The hostel is okay - it's clean, and the location is alright (a block from downtown Taupo). It doesn't really have any character or social scene - so if you're looking for a good time, look elsewhere. The only complaint I have is that the woman at the front desk (owner maybe?) was very rude to me whenever I had a question. I heard the same complaint from other travelers.
