Excellent place to stay. We are a family of 5 and we enjoyed every moment of our stay here. Good location, friendly staff, good atmosphere and the hostel is really pretty.

Comfortable stay and no fuss. Just what we needed for the night. Thanks
Nice Place with good atmosphere & Everything you need, Clean rooms. Just a bit Cold :) But the heater in the room helps a lot.
Reception staff were awesome, and really knowledgeable its good that they have wooden bunk beds, but the linin & kitchen area were a tad shabby. The sauna is a nice touch. I think we were just unlucky with the roomies :/
I'm giving this hostel an average score, because we made a booking online 2 days in advance, yet the staff made a mistake and never transferred our booking from the online system to their own in-house handwritten system. Therefore they accidentally double booked our room. We were very tired when we arrived in Taupo as we were after a long journey. So this was not what we wanted to hear. As we were unable to stay here I scored everything average for this hostel. The staff were very apologetic
Nice hostel, we had a pleasent stay there. The rooms were spacious and clean and had a nice little terrace attached.
Enjoyed my stay. The free made coffee in reception is the real winner in this hostel. A nice, leisurely downhill walk to the lake, right on the rim of the Taupo CBD. Large kitchen and common areas, clean rooms. Accommodating hosts who offer free pick up/drop off at the iSite. Would definitely stay again.
Outstanding combination of value and pleasant location, coupled with a completely natural and friendly staff. One of the few such hostels we would unreservedly recopmmend to others.
Really friendly helpful staff. I would recommend this hostel to others.
