A pleasant stay with friendly staff and guests. The ensuite shower room was very small. Also the way the door to the shower works means the floor gets very wet, so it's hard to keep clothes dry in there. Kitchen could do with new pots and pans. More

Super cool accomodation, met some great people there, and had a lovely time. The staff were really friendly, and the kitchen/living area was good, easy to start chatting with people. The rooms are really good too, and I love the quilts, they are all hochpoch! More

I was upgraded for free on arrival which was a bonus. My double ensuite was spacious and clean. Excellent customer service including booking me onto Barbary cruise that soaked just 10 minutes after I had arrived - a real bonus! Noise from the bar noticeable but bearable. More

Great place, awesome rooms and the common area is really nice. The staff were really helpful and friendly. The bar is great aswell, Happy Hour results in $4 beers. Bike rental is available for $20 for half a day (4hrs). Would really recommend this place to anyone staying in Taupo. More

Staff was very helpful booking the crossing which is the only reason we went through tongariro. The rooms were nice but ours was right off the climbing wall area and avert thing echoed into the room. The kitchen was nice, but there were some items they didn't have that they should have - More

Really good value for money and super helpful staff. Great view from the kitchen/ balcony for sunset. Could have better heating in the room but the electric blanket made up for that :) More

Staff were extremely rude and unfriendly. Had I not put a deposit down, I would have walked out after our first conversation with the front desk. It seemed she was in a horrible mood and took it out on us. Not the way you want to be welcomed. Big clean kitchen, coed bathrooms (not as much More

Tiki Lodge was a nice if quiet place to stay in Taupo (though considering its winter, was understandable). Great location near the lake and town, though the staff wouldn't let stay in the common room after we checked out, which was annoying as we had a bit of a wait till our bus and it was More

It's homey, large kitchen, and cozy dining room, very near to the lake and city center, large parking space. The most important thing is, this hostel is not too crowded (dunno in summer). Not the best, but at least very decent. More
