Stayed in a private room, which is very large and has private bathroom too, very practical (although the shower drain was a little bit clogged). It's possible to hear people talking and slide-doors been opened from other rooms. Staff is very friendly and can help a lot with reservations of More

One of our favourite hostels of the trip. Such a good atmosphere in afternoons, with cheapest alcohol in town if you want. We stayed in a double with ensuite and that was great! Good value. Location right in CBD but town pretty small. Overall, would definitely recommend the hostel. Had More

Everything seemed perfect at first until 11pm (or there abouts) when the bar/nightclub outside the hostel started blaring music throughout the building! The walls and floors are paper-thin, so we had very little sleep during our stay. Aside from that the rooms were nice (amazing view) and More

Taupo was amazing! The staff were so friendly and helpful with anything we needed. The town itself was great, and Base's location only made that better. It was an extremely clean and well run building! I would recommend this hostel to absolutely anyone staying in Taupo! More

I'm giving this hostel an average score, because we made a booking online 2 days in advance, yet the staff made a mistake and never transferred our booking from the online system to their own in-house handwritten system. Therefore they accidentally double booked our room. We were very More

I had a great stay at the YHA Taupo! Everything was clean and comfortable, the kitchen was cleaned daily. The staff were very nice and helpful. I especial liked the huge lockers, they were big enough that my whole backpack fit in. There was also a nice garden with hammocks, and apparently More

Overall nice hostel. It's a 10-minute walk from downtown, so location is not perfect, but on the other hand the neighborhood is quiet. Wifi comes at extra cost and no lockers in room (like other YHAs), but the staff is very friendly and the accommodations are comfortable. More
