After staying in nearly a dozen hostels in NZ, this place felt like coming home! Free WiFi is hard to find in NZ and it was better than the stuff we were paying 6 dollars for at Base. The kitchen is phenomenal and has free spices! The rooms are huge, bunks were wood so no creaking, and the lockers are excellent! Easily the best hostel yet in this country!

The owners of this hostel were lovely and made an effort to learn your name which I certainly haven't gotten anywhere else! Facilities were great and location was great too. Very recommended.

This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Staff extremely friendly and helpful (Barry is awesome!) - provide maps and promote activities (with discount!). Common area with games, couches, pool table, table tennis, movies and xbox. Great kitchen facilities and lots of storage. Clean and modern bathrooms. A little noisy for rooms on the street side, but the front desk provide ear plugs on request. Right in the heart of town, easy access to restaurants, shops and supermarket.

Overall great place! Nice kitchen, beds, and showers, and very friendly and helpful staff. However, the rooms felt a little stuffy and the kitchen is not accessible before or after check out which was a little annoying.

Stayed here and at base as well when we were in Rotorua. Rock Solid was MUCH MUCH better. Great vibe, awesome facilities and location, no added fees, all in all great place to stay.

I think Rocksolid Backpackers is by far the best one I have seen. Great value for money. Can't expect more. Kitchen is amazing. Cleanliness is maintained. Would love to come back again:)

One of the best backpackers I have stayed at throughout the world

The hostel is perfectly located and the staff is extremely friendly. the dorms are spacious with wooden bunk beds. They all have individual reading lights. The kitchen is the best equipped kitchen I have seen so far in a hostel and very clean. The hostel lacks some atmosphere though because they are to many chill out areas.

A pretty amazing hostel to say the least, definitely one of the best I stayed in during my New Zealand trip. The place is huge, with plenty of space in the common areas to chill out or meet travelers. The rooms were of a good size, with very nice beds. Location was great, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi was included which was awesome (and surprisingly rare in NZ hostels). A highly recommended place!

Great Hostel, friendly staff, nice kitchen and rooms. Only thing is that the room with the ping pong table closes after 10 pm so you have to find other ways to entertain yourself after 10 ;)

The staff here are extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. They kindly assisted me with all my requests with regards to my tour bookings and directions. Location-wise, it's right next to the I-Site, making it easy for tour pick-ups and situated centrally to where all the shops, eateries and pubs are. It can get a bit loud at night as there is a pub next door, but it doesn't bother me much. Rooms are clean, showers are clean and the best part, they have an amazing DVD rental collection. :)
