Awesome stay, and a big cheer to the friendly staff. If I have to come back to Topau, I will knock that door. Take care guys, and keep going that way! More

Overall a clean and comfortable hostel with good bathroom and kitchen facilities away from the busier centre of Taupo. Beds were comfortable. Staff were not the most friendly and not willing to go the extra mile to help out. More

Big hostel that is close to the water, supermarkets and shops. Small bathroom for a lot of people and it was pretty dirty. Rooms at the back were LOUD as people kept slamming the doors and bottles were being emptied at 630 on Tuesday morning... Maybe try somewhere quieter if you value More

Really nice hostel with great atmosphere. The common room was very busy with people chatting, eating and playing games. Outdoor areas for people to hang out too. Lots of activities promoted and nice and friendly staff. The 4 bunk room was a good size and comfortable. Shower and toilet was More

Very relaxed vibe and good small size. Private room was basic but clean. Staff was friendly. I most liked the free coffee, plenty of couches in the lounge, and adorable dog. More

Found the staff and hostel very modern and attractive. But my stomach churned when i saw the kitchen and although we were there overnight, it was not cleaned from the time we arrived until the time we left. There was no one monitoring the area and it was easy for people to leave their More

Disappointing to find on arrival both wet tshirt and bikini contests advertised as fun evening activities - not my type of hostel. Limited communal lounge areas. Noisey at night but that's the price you pay for the excellent location. Bunk was incredibly squeaky and wobbly making it More

Keys were given but no one really used them - not the fault of staff! Just guests being too lazy to lock the door behind them. Staff were very helpful :) More

Overall it wasn't a bad stay at the Blackcurrent, there wasn't too much atmosphere owing to the large turnover of people who were staying in Taupo just to do the crossing obv. Not the hostels fault! Security is a bit weird as most people leave the sliding doors to the room open to let a More
