Functional hostel, could do with a face lift. A better communal area would make a more welcoming atmosphere.


No free internet, no free climbing. The bathroom was a bit cold.good localization, close to Tongariro.


Nice rooms, free wifi, but showers were cold


Good place to stay for doing the Tongariro Crossing or for exploring the national park. It was clean and comfortable with nice showers and good kitchen facilities. You had to pay for the wifi, but that's common in NZ hostels. Would recommend.


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
