There are, according to the current BBH handbook, some 275 backpackers accommodations in NZ. For many years, Trampers Rest has always been rated in the top 10. I've stayed there half dozen times; always - ALWAYS - have I left feeling 100% about every aspect of my stay. (And I am an extremely critical sort!) One of the reviewers here - the only Kiwi till now: quite telling, that - obviously had an extraordinary large and aggravating boil on his fundament (he actually believed he should have been given a free stay - blimey!!). Now, if you're looking for a large institutional place full of loud, swigging and swaggering testosterone-amped 20somethings, do yourself a major favour and find someplace else. TR is a warm, wonderful HOME of two (well, 2-1/2) warm, wonderful people who have always welcomed me graciously and gone out of their way to make certain my every need was promptly and perfectly attended to. And i've observed them doing the same with all the other guests on each of my six occasions there. So come. And enjoy.
