When the I-Site directed me to Extreme Backpackers, I was a little skeptical. I'm 66. It didn't seem like my kind of place but it was great. Comfortable, clean, relatively quiet, well maintained, friendly, good service , across the street from the I-Site and Inter-city bus stop. Outdoor as well as indoor tables, hammocks, a good kitchen, a restaurant, a climbing wall (if you still have some energy after the Tongariro Crossing). Good international mix and age-range so I didn't feel like I had crashed a college dorm.
