I stayed one week in the station lodge in Ohakune and I really enjoyed it. It´s a lodge with a splendid view on the Mount Ruapehu. I´m traveling as a backpacker and this lodge has been the best on the North Island. For Backpackers is interesting to note that this hostel is a BBH Hostel. There is a nice kitchen with all necessary items that you need. The lodge is set in a beautiful style and has great bathrooms. Everything is very clean, the hosts are very friendly and familiar and you feel like home. You can hire very new and great mountain bikes. There are so many activities in this area. I did the Tongariro Crossing Walk, which is highly recommended. Also in winter, the lodge is a perfect starting point for winter sportsman.
For travelers with more comfort, there are stylish and modern apartments and chalets with a kitchen or a kitchenette in the room.
I would definitely come again at any time. Thank you for the wonderful stay! Simone
