Clean rooms and showers, however I found the kitchen really untidy and dirty which made it difficult to cook. The staff were great and it's in a good location, it's a shame that the kitchen is closed so early as there are no other areas to socialise.
Good location and very modern, clean hostel with good facilities including a hot tub. Good value. Helpful staff. Can book you activities and busses etc.
Really close to the center and from the lake as well, I advise this backpacker !!
The beds aren't confortable and the curtains doesn't cut the light well enough, so that's two reasons to not sleep well. Also there was only two plugs for the entire bedroom. On the bright side, the staff was good, the lounge and kitchen correct with view on the lake, with a babyfoot and a TV room. And the free breakfast is nice.
Really great staff, amazing showers, good communal areas—although annoying that the kitchen and main lounge close around 11. Free parking, lockers, close to town, good wifi and pretty good value. Would definitely recommend to anybody
Really clean hostel. Good location, Taupo is small so anywhere really was. Very friendly staff, very helpful and attentive. Fantastic water pressure in the showers. Liked having toast and cereal in the morning Downside kitchen/sitting area closes early as does reception. Would recommend.
Great little Hostel everything is in walking distance great staff with good Wifi (not Free) really pleased with this hostel very good atmosphere would recommend.
Very nice hostel. The wifi wasn't great, and a bunch of kids were making noise in the hall for about an hour at 2am (but I guess that's not the hostel's fault). Nice hostel, nice location, good big kitchen too.
Helpful staff, so clean, excellent location. Best hostel I have stayed in in NZ so far
Great approachable staff. Quiet area of the town, a little out of the main drag. Real short walk to lake Taupo. Sensational sunsets/sunrises for pic opportunities.
Fantastic view of lake Taupo from the decking! Nice room and even got upgraded to an ensuite room free of charge which was a nice surprise!
Tiki Lodge was generally great - staff really helpful, free breakfast a huge plus, & location is perfect for pretty much everything you need in the town. Free parking also a plus. Lockers are outside the rooms. Only thing that let the place down was the people on a Kiwi Experience staying who were drunk by 8pm, running up and down corridors and screaming all night. Booked here as it wasn't a 'party' hostel, but it was like a circus on the last night, and I hardly slept. Otherwise great.
Very thin matresses. Very cold in the kitchen/living room,
시설이 매우 깔끔하고 정돈이 잘 되어있었으며, 리셉션 직원이 매우 친절했습니다.

Excellent service - our bus wasn't arriving till 1am and they still made arrangements for us to stay. Free breakfast was a great addition - have never had that in a hostel before. Also had eggs for sale for 50c so we ended up having scrambled eggs, peanut butter and jelly toasties and cereal for a dollar! The ensuite in my dorm was super clean and the heater kept us nice and toasty throughout the night. Very spacious kitchen/eating area and only a 2 minute walk to everything.
Stayed for 3 nights. Arrived in early hours & though reception was closed they were able to leave a key & instructions for us. Staff really friendly & so helpful in advising activities etc. room was really clean & beds comfy/cosy. We were in a triple room & even had our own little kitchen. Free breakfast (toast,spreads,cereal) was really good. Kitchen a little dirty but maybe due to other guests not hostels fault! Very short walk to shops, isite, bars,etc. would recommend & stay again :)
The bag storage room is not locked. The TV room is too small and acts as a walkway between bedrooms and kitchen and so people are in/out all the time. Good kitchen + facilities. VERY uncomfortable bed - mattress against the slats!! Poor drainage in the bathrooms leaving a smell. Shower cubicle a bit cramped. Handy that brekkie is included!!
