Wonderful stay at Rotorua Central Backpackers. Everyone is extremely friendly and the rooms are quiet most of the time. Very relaxing, and amazing beds! Also so nice to have free wifi!

Very friendly hostel, lovely staff, great facilities :)
Very comfy beds. Although a weird ambiance/atmosphere in the hostel. (Not many backpackers, but older (grumpy) people and people who live there). Very thin walls.
BEST HOSTEL EVER! We were complicated guests (arrived late etc) and Neil, his wife and the night staff were always amazing to us, warm, friendly and very helpful. They also give good advices on what to do in the area. Besides facilities are perfect: cozy, warm temperature everywhere, hot showers, all rooms clean at all time, kitchen very well equiped, tv room and even a small hot pool! Very central location - close to bus stop. Only weakness: you have to pay to use the computer
Very nice hostel. No complaints. Central heating was a blessing in winter. I will make this my Rotorua stop whenever I pass through
The king size bed in the private room and the room furniture was great. The hostel was very clean in general, except for the kitchen.
The location of this place was so convenient, also the bedrooms were so comfortable. Everyone has their own bed, own bed side table and a PowerPoint. I felt like I wasn't cramped up! Would highly recommend
So nice to be in a warm hostel. Great location. Hot pool out the back is a really good place to relax in the evening.
Great hostel with lovely staff in a central location. On arrival the manager spent a good 15 minutes with me describing what he recommends doing in town, and then gave me a tour of the hostel. The Hot Spa is also a wicked place to spend some time relaxing after a hard day exploring!
I had a great stay, really comfortable beds and no bunk beds. Each bed had its own bed-side cabinet and plug sockets and free unlimited WiFi, was a really comfy chilled out place to stay and only minutes walk away from shops and the lake.
We loved our stay here in Rotorua. Instead of squeaky bunks we slept on comfy single beds in a room that felt half like home. There was enough space for everyone and you had individual plug sockets and a mini table/shelf each. The facilities were very good as well, with lots of hot showers and toilets, and a fully equipped kitchen. Would stay again!
Staff was extremely friendly and wifi was very fast.
Good place to stay, manager was very friendly and gave us a detailed map of places to go in town, hot pool was decent, only issue was that the soap dispenser in the bathroom did Not get refilled during our three day stay, king size bed was great.
Second time we've stayed here and have nothing bad to say. Big clean rooms, super friendly owners and good location.
Pretty standard hostel, although without bunk beds which is a nice change. No lockers.
For the bathroom, very highly advised, shower should be installed not bathtub.
