The accommodation itself was superb. However the staff made the decision to close the restaurant/café early due to being quiet. We were told that places around the area would still serve food until 9pm. We went out for dinner at 8.15, and were told at several places locally that they stopped serving food at 8pm. Therefore the two teenagers we had with us had several packet of crisps for tea which we bought from the local pub. Not good!

It doesnt have cutlery or any kitchen ware, so either you bring your oen or you rent a set for $10. That's one of the desanvanteges.


Pretty solid all around facility. Bedrooms were cozy, Kitchen/dining was spacious, and bathrooms were well kept. Only small nit pick thing was there were no even halfway decent knives in the kitchen area (small thing, I know) Definitely enjoyed my stay!


Location is good. Staff very unfriendly and everything quite expensive. Internet doesn't work.

Pretty quiet hostel, not much to do. Facilities were alright but price was rather high (but there's nothing cheap in Waitomo).


Kitchen was very dirty with not many utensils. No drinking of your own alcohol in the entire place as they have a bar which they want you to use instead
