The beds have low ceilings. So being on the low bed means hitting your head all the time. But nice staff en clean so it nice. Not far from lake. Get free bed en cornflakes in the morning. nice kitchen

Thank you for your review. We have standard size bunks which most people find are adequate. Free breakfast is a bonus which we find most people enjoy :-). We hope you enjoy the rest of your travels around NZ.

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear you found the room smelly, I hope you informed reception of this, perhaps this was from hiking boots. The view of the mountains is stunning at this time of year, glad you took the time to enjoy it. Enjoy the rest of your travels.

I stayed here for 2 nights, and it was a pretty nice spot! Free breakfast is a good plus. Wi fi isn't free, but hey, you can't have everything! Nice kitchen area, and good views from the second floor deck. Staff were super nice, and helped to book busses for the best deals they could find too. Good proximity to...

It was really nice to stay at Tiki Lodge. The place is clean and have a lot of facilities. The kitchen is huge and the living room is large. The tv room is full of options to watch and the couches are comfortable. The distance from the lake is about 5 minutes walking.

nice room, nice personell in the kitchenette with fresh towels and a clean little kitchen. The bathroom was to share with another four-bed-rooom, but plenty of other toiletts in the building. And best-a little spa-pool in the garden

This is a really good hostel if you don't want to spend too much money on accommodations, the best part is the free breakfast. The only thing that didn't make it excellent is that it can be pretty loud during the nights. You can wake up from people just walking out in the corridor.

The room was pretty large and clean and in general excellent; however We found some pieces of make-up. The kitchen also needs some new pans. We stayed in another place for three other nights with the same price.I can say the value of the room compared with the price is a lot.

I stayed 4 days in the Tiki lodge and didn't regret it. It is located a little bit off the action so it was quiet but in Taupo you are everywhere within 10 minutes by foot. I stayed in a dorm room which was spacey compared to other hostels. The bed was okay, just a little bit squeeky as most...
