Staff at reception friendly and helpful. Kitchen was okay, location was good. Noisy nightclub not so great especially when so many of us were waking early for the crossing the next morning. Bathroom was okay.

Had a fantastic stay at Base for my one short night. Really appreciated having the toilet and shower in the room and everything was very clean. The staff were friendly and personable and I can't wait to go back!

I stayed in the winter so I had a 2 bunk room to myself with ensuite. Very clean. Had a tv :) internet great, had to pay for it. Location is central and stunning views of lake Taupo from my window. Kitchen is massive with lots to use to cook. Staff very helpful. I would stay again.

Good location near the lake, shops, food places, etc. Powerpoints by each of the beds, unlike others in the same chain that I've visited. Not too bad overall.
