At first I have to say that one Lady of the staff, i think she was Megan, was really nice and helped me a lot! Especially she helped me in that stuff, the other members of the staff team failed to do. Because of one of them I nearly would have lost 60$ because of wrong bookings in a trip. The two older ones were really unfriendly. And 20$ for 15km ride withe a shuttle is outrageous. I am sorry for the bad rating, but this had to be said.

good hostel to do the mordor hike. bus leaves from here and hiking rental,
The hostel was good, an average yha. The staff was very helpful with planning the hiking trips and it was very good that you could rent hiking gear there (from clothes to shoes, crampons, ice axe etc...) The only annoying thing was that they don"t really have a lounge for people to hang out, just a small, small tv room hidden away in the last corner of the hostel :(
Standard budget accom. Rooms were clean and all the facilities were adequate. Great for a basic place to stay when heading to Ruapehu for the weekend.
The problem was not with the friendly and helpful staff, but rather the facility which shows distinct signs of disrepair - the smell of paint and turpentine (?) was overpowering in some areas. Fortunately, we spent most of our time at Tongariro!
