I never experience any problem during my stay at Taupo Retreat Bay. I had my freedom respected which was the most important thing to me. I can book the same value in future if around Taupo. More

Great place to stay at Taupo: friendly staff, good location and a nice athmosphere. No lockers in the dorms though. 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

Very nice hostel, owned by a friendly couple who does its best to make your stay enjoyable (free tea and coffee, pick-ups to and from bus station, movie nights with free pop-corn...). Everything is very clean (for example the staff cleans the kitchen several times during the evening) and 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

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

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
