The hostel itself has the feeling of security and comfort. It is not a hostel for partying as we were told Alcohol and drugs are strictly forbidden. The rooms are nicely laid out, clean carpets, clean sheets, clean bathrooms. All rooms have a keycard access system and there are plenty of video cameras around.

One of the staff helped us plan the next few stops in our journey providing plenty of detailed information about food spots in Rotorua.

The location is fantastic though. It's within walking district of the CBD where there are plenty of restaurants, bars, and activities. I would highly recommend staying here, great value for money.

In my experience you rarely come across a hostel where everything works and is clean. This hostel is the exception. I was almost bummed I was only staying one night because the place was so nice. Clean and working bathroom and kitchen and the beds were comfortable. Convenient location on the free shuttle line and a short walk to the bus terminal, couldn't ask for more.

I was extremely happy after a tiring day of travelling to stumble across the Backpackers Central in Hamilton. The staff made me feel very welcome, and they cheerfully helped me out with all my needs. I had a single room with a private bath. It was affordable and clean. I also liked the common area, which was very comfortable and bright. The free internet coupons I received were measured by data transmission. It was enough for email correspondence. The Backpackers is in a central location, and a lot of things are in walking distance. When I left I was treated like a friend. I would definitely go back there in the future. I highly recommend this place.

I've chosen this hostel because of it's good location and because of the price. The staff is really friendly and helpfull. They really take care of you with providing everything you need for the kitchen, Free internet was only 80MB for me (two days) though. I would recommend it!

The host was very accommodating to our needs. As first-time travelers to Hamilton, we were very happy that he was there to answer all our questions. The room was clean and tidy, as were the common areas. Great place to stay, very near to the city center. Internet allocation gets spent rather quickly, though. Still, I'd gladly recommend this place to anyone!:)

Room Tip: Try to ask if they can give you a room exclusively for your group.
