The owners are great fun and make u feel really welcome and are very helpful. The rooms are lovely and the facilities are great and has everything you need. You are central in town too. Although it takes a little of getting used to the rotten egg smell. (Not just at the backpackers it's rigorous in a hole.

Room Tip: We stayed in a double on suite which has everything you need.

Me and a friend stayed here for two nights. We were pleasantly surprised, as the hostel consists of two buildings: the main building which is as busy and slightly chaotic as you might expect and a second one across the road which used to be a family home not too long ago and only has three double rooms, a kitchen and living room and secluded garden. It is a lot quieter than the main building, as you are not sharing with many people, but perfect if you like your privacy from time to time. The host was a German woman who was really friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome from the first minute. It is walking distance to town and close to a shopping mall with a supermarket. I really enjoyed our stay here!

Excellent and clean property with nearly nothing to complain. Rooms were big and spacious. The owner was very friendly and helpful with everything you can think of. The kitchen is well stocked and clean and a excellent layout. We could bake and cook without any worries. Attractions are available directly from her with a discount!

Room Tip: Buy attraction tickets from them and save some money!

This hostel is a great place to stay. We had private rooms which were very clean and spacious. Gerard and Annie are very nice, fun to talk to and know all about the area, and helped us to book and find activities. We walked to shops and restaurants. We hope we get an opportunity to stay there again.

Lovely hostel made even better by lovely owners. Huge kitchen with loads of free herbs and spices. Great showers. Good location with countdown just across the road. Owners are fantastic and so friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend staying here!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the outside doubles which are cheaper than the inside ones, but just as nice!

The whole place is very clean, staff is very cool, the rooms are very good as well as the bathrooms. Kitchen is very modern and with everything you need (:
Plus, you can ask them for discounts for Rotorua's main attractions.

Very recommendable!

The rooms are clean and spacious; the toilets and showers were fine; the kitchen seemed well equipped (I can't comment too much as I didn't use it!). I felt very comfortable here, all for a really decent price. I would definitely come back!

Room Tip: 4 share rooms are good for meeting new people but not too crowded!
