Not the cleanses but free wifi and good location
Follow blog link below for full review. Not really a lot of services on the small drag where this is located, but the hostel seemed kind of cool. Also a climbing gym. No WiFi and super cold (was there in the winter), but people seemed nice enough. I only stayed overnight, but seemed like an interesting place if you're into climbing. http://www.howdareshe.org/hostel-review-yha-national-park-backpackers/
Very nice place but the staff would like to charge us 5 dollars to use the shower after our stay! (we spent one night and we arrived around 6pm and left the day after at 6am - less than 12 hours). Fair price to the stuffs that they rent to do the crossing
The rooms are great; very cozy & spacious. The rest of the hostel is clean as well. Only complaint is that the mattress was quite thin and fairly uncomfortable for me to sleep on.
Cold rooms poor showers that didn't go very hot! Very clean and good kitchen though
Good place to stay if you are planning on doing the tongariro crossing. There is not a lot to do around as national park village exist just to accommodate hikers. They offer a shuttle bus for $35.
So convenient for the Tongariro Crossing and and all round great hostel.
Excellent base for visiting Tongariro and we appreciated the advice from reception re where to eat and what to do.
