The hostel is clean, good service, and something very important regarding to hostels: COMFORTABLE BEDS!!! Kitchen incredibly tidy, the pool is a plus. It's not in the center of Rotorua, but it really worth the blocks you walk. I stayed only one night but would go back.

I cannot fault this place. Reception staff is really nice, the room was large and clean, bathroom was a nice size (make sure to take a towel as they only provide mat). The common areas were very charming. It was a 15-minute walk to town, but very pleasant and loads of supermarkets nearby. Free internet is definitely a bonus. Overall, a great place!

I have to admit, I thought my days of staying in hostels were over (by about 20 years), but I have to say this place is great. Especially the staff. Everyone feels instantly welcome. And after a day or two, you will feel like family. Be sure to have a soak in the thermal pool. They will adjust the temperature exactly to your liking!

I have stayed in many hostels over the years and this is definitely one of the best. The receptionist was very helpful with suggestions and advice for what do in the area. We rented two beds in a 4 bed dorm room at such a great price. The beds were real ones and NOT pieces of foam! Nice quality of linens and pillows as well. The room was spacious and had a huge bathroom, very uncommon for dorm rooms! Our room also had sliding doors in addition to the entrance door! The hotel has 2 heated pools, a clean and open spaced kitchen/ dining area and lots of space for parking. But the absolute best part? They do not add guests to your dorm room if they check in after 10 pm! I am so used to be awaken during the night at other places with guests coming and going. Thanks four canoes for a great stay!

I came across this motel by using the Trip Advisor app on my phone when I was in Taupo. There is plenty of reviews and pictures that have been uploaded by people that have stayed at Four Canoes and I decided to contact them. After a pleasant phone call to a helpful staff member, I managed to secure a double room and proceeded to drive to Rotorua.
The room and facilities were excellent and the price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend Four Canoes and look forward to my next stay.

Many thanks.
