Staff and climbing wall were wonderful, the public spaces adequate, and the room itself very disappointing. Our private en suite room had bare lightbulbs, no toilet paper or hand soap in the bathroom, no lamps, bedside tables, no cover on the box springs, etc. The toilet appeared to be clean but still smelled a little. Overall a disappointment, but the climbing wall (almost) made up for it!

This was a great hostel! If you are planning on doing activities while visiting Tongariro National Park then this is a great location to be in. For the famous Tongariro Alpine Crossing day hike, the hostel offers a bus that drops you off at the start and picks you up at the end of the day when your hike has finished - its awesome! The hostel itself felt very homey and comfortable. The facilities were clean and the kitchens were well equipped. The view is also stunning right out the front door!

Great place to stay if you are hiking the crossing. The staff are knowledgeable about various hikes and help you get the information you need. Mini golf and a climbing wall are a nice touch!

This is a very busy hostel processing lots of people. They looked after us really well. The website said they were full but they found places for us. They were busy people but they did put themselves out for us.

Chemical smells, terrible mold on window blinds, and poor customer service from some hostel employees. It was not an enjoyable experience at all and I would never go back, nor ever recommend a friend to go.

Generally it's a nice place to stay if you are visiting the national park. The only thing to mention is the wifi, that is not free...are we 2006? We have been travelling for 6 months now and only in Australia and New Zealand, the hostels/hotels charge you for wifi, which makes no sense, especially because the price of the accommodation is much more expensive
