No lockers although room do have locks. Rooms are a little draughty. Beds are narrow and mattress are a bit old. The place is OK for for what you need it for.
Staff were very helpful and friendly, they made the stay a great experience. Thanks so much.

Overall, great hostel; close to Tongario Crossing, comfortable beds, and big kitchen! You can also rent hiking boots and outdoor wear for a small fee.
Very good, clean hostel. Staff were happy to help with everything. Tongariro Crossing transfer was $30 return, which i think is standard in the town. 8 bed dorm was a good size, plenty of power supplies, and kept clean by staff each day. Internet at $5 a day, although another guy and myself did manage to connect to a free connection in certain parts of the hostel! Good sized and well-equipped kitchen. Well located, close to foursquare supermarket.
excellent service from understaffed workers. Management should pa the workers for the extra work, servive and security they provide.
The staff were short. The young woman who did our room was excellent, thoughtful, and over-worked. When a hostel is a staff member down they work longer and harder. But, this woman always provided the necessaries + advice and time as she saw that we 'needed' it. Do they get the money for the extra work they do, the extra hours they stay up, the extra security they provide, the extra layer of responsibility they provide? No. Not fair...!! She will not protest ... because her job would be ....
