I stayed a Crash a few nights agao, and will definitely stay again when I pass back through Rotorua!
Upon check-in we were informed that the owner (Chris) would be cooking dinner for the hostel that night (mama's special recipe spag bol!) so that was a winner to start off! The hostel looks like it has been freshly painted and decorated everywhere, and everything in our spacious 4 bed dorm appeared new - another winner! The bathrooms were big and clean, and the kitchen (not that i ever needed it as we were also provided with free pancake mix on the sunday morning!) was also clean and had everything you need. There is also a big lounge area where everyone was sitting round together watching tv and socialising - creating a warm and friendly vibe! - oh and there is a small bar with cheap drinks too to prepare for a night out! oh, and did i mention that hot tub outside?!
The location couldnt be any better, and there was nothing to complain about at all - hence this review! I defo recommend staying at Crash Palace!!
