it was a wonderful stay with great people including the couple, who lead it. it was very clean, very warm with fire in the living room and the hot spa was amazing after the hiking tours...loved it there and will return!

A cosy clean hostel, great for meeting people. I was travelling alone and found it one of the easiest places to meet people. National Park Village is tiny and most people go there to do Tongariro Crossing, don't worry about doing the hike if you are travelling alone, there are plenty of people of the track! Only concern at this hostel was no key for the dorm, and no lockers (although none of the hostels I stayed in in NZ had lockers). Would definitely recommend staying here.
Perfect location, nice,comfy and clean rooms and bathrooms with a large socialable lounge area for those who want to use it. Staff were really lovely and kitchen was well equipped.
