Loved staying at Kiwi-Paka. It was a really lovely experience. Everything was outstanding and we would highly recommend it to anyone who is going to Rotarua.

Hostel is a bit out of town (no pick up service provided), old and rooms are small, but it has got nice staff and a lovely hot thermal pool.
