Thanks for the kind words. We have a lot of renovations [planned to bring our place up to a higher standard
After staying in YHA, BBH and XBase hostels, Cactus Jack was a nice change. The fun murals and western decor added character to my stay. This was a very affordable option for me. I got a single room with shared facilities for the lowest price in town. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. I enjoyed the help from reception as they were engaging and helpful. The hostel was under renovation so I expect improvements as things progress. There is the Thursday night street market just down the block which I really enjoyed. I would definitely return.
Thanks for the kind words
Yes we are upgrading and this will continue
This backpackers is awesome! The staff were really friendly and helpful, the showers are AMAZING, the rooms were nice and comfortable. Really got our moneys worth here. We had a BBQ in the courtyard and overall had a really good night. Definately recommend Cactus Jacks if your in Rotorua.
Thanks for the kind words lets try to live up to the praise
Nice little warm hostel with great staff and guests. Clean, awesome atmosphere and everyone has been very friendly to me. The price is great, especially for someone on a budget like me. The rooms were pretty nice and the beds very comfortable. The showers were tidy and great. I had a great time and great sleep and I will recommend this hostel to anyone who visits Rotorua because it's a great find!
Now that the geothermal is working properly the hostels warmth is radiating better
Thank you for noticing the efforts my staff are doing
Had a great stay at this hostel! Very warm, great showers and kitchen facilities! They are in the process of re modelling so this hostel should turn out to be a real gem! Definitely a nicer experience than the more commercially run hostels! Big thanks to Dan for being so helpful and pointing out the hot pools! Cheers Dan!
Thanks for your kind words.
We are upgrading things so thanks for the response
I got some kind of allergic reaction on my neck from the bed not sure what it was but could be fleas. Huge itchy red spots all over my neck and under my chin! Some kitchen equipments could be better and more variety. On the plus side the place is really warm and showers were good. I think they are trying to improve the place at the moment. Doesn't seem like a party place tho.
Thanks for the review; We have engaged somebody to check for fleas etc and to remedy.
We take this matter seriously so it would have been more helpful if this problem was brought to our attention earlier.
Our kitchen equipment is continually being upgraded.
Our best wishes Inka K
