Having spent 4 weeks here I feel suitably qualified to review this place! And straight off this hostel is fantastic. Perfect location in walking distance to everything In town. Catherine and Neil who run the hostel are so friendly and helpful with loads of helpful advice about the area and bookings. There's tonnes of super comfortable communal space, especially a tv lounge with a large DVD library great for a chilled evening in. The kitchen is one of the best I've ever seen, lots of hobs and fridge space and a dining area with plenty of seating. One of the big highlights is the spa pool which is large enough for a big group of people. The bedrooms are all spacious and really reasonably priced with comfy beds (NO BUNKS YAY!!). The wifi does cost extra but spending lots of time in rotorua it seems to be a common theme and pretty standard, thankfully it's pretty cheap here!! So overall if I ever come back to Rotorua I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else!
