Really enjoyed my stay here. Very reasonable price for an en suite double room. All spotlessly clean. Very helpful staff and a great bar.

A great place to stay close to the center of town, yet with off-street parking. Great cooking and tea and coffee facilities and also great having a bar on site. When my friend was concerned about hairs found on the fresh sheets, the staff member swapped the sheets without question. It is apparently a drier issue, (but probably an issue that needs addressing).

Cheap wifi throughout the hostel, not many plugs and the rooms were a little dated. Nice communal area and good central location in Taupo. Bar on site

Room and toilets were pretty clean, kitchen area was large enough and well stocked. Free tea and coffee was good. Really sociable and chilled atmosphere, especially in the evenings, very easy to meet people. Have to pay for WiFi but seems to be the norm in this part of the world.

Very good hostel. Huge rooms, clean, friendly staff, bar in the hostel, meal available for 5 dollars. The only thing is the wi-fi not free.

Had such an amazing time staying here in Taupo, made incredible by the friendly and open minded staff! The location and facilities were great, and the social but not too rowdy armostphere was perfect to meet new people as a solo traveller. Would definitely recommend staying here!
