Our room we had reserved with a credit card was given away to someone else because we arrived at half seven, an hour and a half later than we said we would be. We had no phone coverage until we got to Taupo to ring ahead and explain. Lady on reception said all hostels in the area will cancel your booking if your ten minutes late, even if reserved with a credit card. When asked did she know anywhere else to stay in the area she said no! We couldn't believe the way we were spoken to.
