I'm arrived in Funky Green at 9.30pm and James, the owner, introduced myself at his family and other travelers. He tried to organize our trip to showing the most beautiful spots! We saw everything we wanted thanks to his advice. He is very welcoming, pleasant and nice! The hostel is very clean and comfortable... Unfortunately, I had to continue my...

I stayed here with my partner on a tour of New Zealand. The place is so well ran with friendly and informative staff. The atmosphere is very friendly and there's lots of communal space. We stayed in a double room with ensuite and it was massive with a comfy bed and a really nice bathroom. Probably the best backpackers style...

A 15 minute walk from the i-site, this charming hostel will definitely charm you. Clean and functional kitchen, the rooms are quiet and away from the living area, the owners are super nice. It is situated in an area where it doesn't smell rotten eggs so it gives you a little break from the geyser's smell! There is a countdown,...

As soon as we stepped into Funky Green Voyager the owner was so so lovely. Full of useful information in regards to rotarua and much more. The beds were comfy, if you are staying in a private room like we did it was like your own little house. Absolutely loved it

One of the most welcoming and helpful hostels I have ever stayed in! I stayed here for three nights in the private family unit with my parents and we loved every minute. The rooms were spacious and fairly clean. The owners are fantastic, the kitchen well equipped, beds comfortable and good pressure + hot water in the bathroom. Good laundry...

It was a very nice place - clean, warm in the main building (nice wood fire), very friendly staff who knew so much about the area, everything gets recycled, there's a book swap shelf, a stereo/radio, a coffee machine ($4 or something). The room was quite cold, we had a twin room and there was no heater, but there were...

Comfy beds, eco friendly hostel. Knowledgable and friendly staff. Good wifi connection but 500mb limit. Not great access to showers and facilities if staying in the courtyard rooms. Located a bit away from centre of town. Free parking. . .

Stayed here for one night after finishing a Waitomo Caves and Hobbiton Movie Set tour from Auckland. Cosy little hostel with great prices to offer. Funky Green Voyager is environmentally conscious - they have a comprehensive recycling system and a small compost where you can throw leftover food for the local pigs. Showers and toilets are unisex. Many spacious bedrooms,...
