We stayed for just one night in Taupo in September 2011.
Immediately on arrival, we were made to feel very welcome here, our room wasn’t ready, so we left our packs and headed off to find the Huka Falls and hot springs, clutching the map the very friendly lady on reception had drawn for us. Needless to say, our map was accurate and we had a great walk out.
On our return, we found our room to be exceptionally comfortable, the shower hot and powerful (believe me – after our previous accommodation with a classic hostel ‘luke warm dribble’ shower, this almost had tears of joy mingling with the streams of water) and the bed, huge and soft.
The shared kitchen facilities were the best we saw in all of our travels in NZ, and the balcony has just the most stunning views across the lake to the mountains beyond.
If we had known in advance what a superb hostel this was, we would have booked for more than just the one night. A fantastic find!
