Loved this hostel. Great set up, vibe, and kitchen. For the love of god though, please put some air fresheners or something in room 18. Since the one window is near the bed with the plug, it gets taken but people don't factor in the cold so there is zero air in that room at night and it's BO doom.

Definitely go here if you are looking for a great hostel in Taupo. Rooms are well kept and staff are super helpful. The common area is right in the middle so everyone has to pass through it to get to their rooms meaning lots of socializing. Cheap drink special everyday too. Wifi is free and works really well!

Very good hostel. Strong wifi throughout was great, password changed every 24 hours which kept it un-congested. Only allowed 1 device which isn't ideal. Kitchen very clean and well equipped. Rooms were also very clean and great security, large padlockable drawers under beds and auto-locking doors were great. Nice lounge, bar, kitchen area and on-site bike loans were very useful. Staff very helpful at all times too.
