The only thing good about this hostel is the price and great look and cleanliness. I personally didn't like the showers which were a push to shower style, meaning every 5 seconds you had to push for water. Another bad thing is that dish washing liquid was not provided for the dishes so all the dishes are surely very dirty. Other than that, the reception is not very friendly and security is low as anyone can come and go as they please.
Great value for money and staff were friendly and helpful though he didn't speak much English. It was alright and an enjoyable stay overall.
Extremely terrible stay, the worst thus far after travelling to17 cities around NZ. Two good points,free pickup from the airport and ingredients for breakfast. Either than that, terrible from start to finish. Pick up unfriendly and unhelpful.Kitchen small and poorly maintained. We had to find the kitchen ourselves and were not told it was under construction. Water undrinkable-cloudy.Lighting terrible-saving lighting on the stairs but using neons in the rooms.Rooms-unfurnished,low value for price
Its a truly pleasant stay right in front of the lake!! Well-equipped and clean =)
Really enjoyed my stay in YHA rotorua, a small, clean and homely backpacker. Worth every penny!! =)
