The person at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. She made checking in very easy, she booked my Tongariro shuttle, and also made sure I had considered getting food as there is only one store in the town. The hostel was good for the price you pay. The lounge area was quiet, the kitchen was very clean, and...

I had a very good experience. The person at the front desk, was helpful and friendly. The hostel was very clean and felt very safe. The person at front desk booked my shuttle for Tongariro, gave food recommendations and was just a nice person. As for the rooms, they are what you pay for but the hostel itself was very...

Gets the job done, but not exceptional. Common refrigerator is DISGUSTING, smells like someone died. Nice common area but is a little cold temperature-wise. Staff are rarely, if ever, at the front desk -- always need to page someone to get a question answered, which is annoying.

Booked a twin room with shared bathroom for my weekend getaway from Auckland. Overall the hotel is showing it's age with stained carpet, worn wood furniture and faded sheets, but it's clean enough for the weekend and hey, you get what you pay for. As I went during the ski season, the placed was packed for the weekend and there...

We stayed here for two nights. It is located in National Park Village but if you do not have a car, it's about a 10-15 minute walk to the cafe / 4 square in the front of the village. There seemed to be a few closed (seasonal?) restaurants right around the place but for the most part nothing in the...

Good room, with good shower and average heating. We arrived after reception was closed, but they could accomodate us with no problem. Kitchen is large and well equiped. Silence is incredible! We could sleep listening only the wind outside. Staff is very carefull about security for the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. They checked our equipment and lended me gloves and hats,...

Stayed one night in a twin room. Beds were short (I am not very tall) and really squishy which I don't like. Enough space to store things. The room we had was right next to the kitchen which was a good size but we didn't sleep well as a group were drinking in the kitchen until the early hours and...

This place is perfect if you are doing the tongariro alpine crossing (the pick up location is just around the corner). They have free parking spots and the haus is cozy, warm and nice with confortable beds and extra hot showers. There is a big common area where you can watch tv, read a book getting wormed in front of...

Awesome and friendly staff, a wood fireplace free to use at any time, and a huge rec room with all you could ask for in a public space. Board games, pool table, books, tv, puzzles, and that fireplace! Super cosy spot and was glad to spend a couple of nights here when it was pouring rain outside. No free tea...

I liked it. It had a bit of character and it did the trick. Very cheap and practical. The girl who works and the reception and basically you see working around the hostel all the time, is fab. Very friendly and happy to help. Free pool is an awesome bonus. Bad WiFi is the only con.
