We had a double room and barely had enough space for a couple of small bags - the dorms were actually roomier! Although the location and facilities were pretty good, the price was a little steep for a hostel. Staff were really nice although super strict about check out time!
Very nice hostel, comfortable and clean. Great restaurants and shops around the corner from the hostel. Corner rooms on top floor with balconies were lovely - let in a lot of light. Was a ways away from the airport though which was a little painful since we were there only one night.
Just a short walk from the main street where we found a small grocery store and lots of good restaurants. Staff were knowledgeable and helpful. There were 6 of us so we booked out a little unit and had it all to ourselves :)
Rotorua was a bit of a disappointment after all of the other wonderful places we had been to in NZ. The Crash Palace was excellently located and clean enough, but had a bit of a grungy feel to it and added to our general grey mood about the city! The staff were very nice, knowledgeable and helpful. When you book a room, try and find one away from the kitchens or you'll have to deal with a lot of unwelcome smells. If you want a quiet night - the rooms overlooking the sauna are not for you!
The hostel is located right around the corner from the main street where you start your treks/heli-hikes to the glacier. 6 of us shared a dorm which was roomy. The big windows let a lot of light in and there were heaters and extra blankets for the night. Good value for money.
