Rongo was the worst backpackers I have ever stayed in. We came off the heaphy track after 4 days of walking to get a cold shower with no privacy in the shower area. The dorm rooms were dark and dingy, the place didn't feel clean and the owner was incredibly obnoxious. The huts while we were tramping were a much better standard than those encountered at Rongo. Karamea is a lovely part of the country, but I would definitely recommend staying at the other backpackers in town if you ever travel in this area, or for half the price you can stay in the local domain where at least you can get a hot shower.
