Funky Green Voyager makes sustainable travel in Rotorua easy. We're big on recycling and proud of our eco credentials – plus we have a big backyard full of lovely lush grass. Head out there with a beer and fire up the barbecue on sunny days. In the winter, we make a roaring log fire in the lounge, so there's always somewhere cosy to hang out and make new friends. Our friendly staff are always up for a chat and they've got tons of tips like where to find the best yoga studios or craft breweries.


We're on the edge of the Victoria neighbourhood, just south of the centre of Rotorua. Hop on the number 10 bus from Rotorua Airport and you'll be with us in 35 minutes – we have luggage storage, so if you arrive early you can drop your bag and get exploring straightaway. We're a 15-minute walk from the centre of Rotorua and 18 minutes from the Rotorua Museum. Road-tripping around the North Island? You can park outside for free.

Rooms and Dorms

Our brightly coloured linen adds to the funky feel of our sleeping areas, which include private rooms – great for couples and small groups – and mixed dorms for those who prefer to mingle. Our beds all have 200cm-long inner-spring mattresses, so they're extra-comfortable. Some of our rooms have en-suite bathrooms, too, so you don't have far to go in the middle of the night.

Extras and activities

We've got a growing foodie scene in Rotorua, but if you don't feel like eating out (or want to save some dollars for adventure tours), you can easily make dinner in our well-equipped kitchen or grill something tasty on our barbecue. With free Wi-Fi throughout the hostel, look up some new recipes to impress your mates! The next day, take your travel buddies along to reception and we'll help you book days out – from rafting the Kaituna River to mountain biking the redwood forests.

    This hostel is owned by the friendliest family. The young son met us at reception & we were impressed by his knowledge & appreciated his tour around the accomodation. The hostel had a really great homely atmosphere & all the guests were a joy to chat too. There was a living room area with a lovely fire which was so cosy! The kitchen was clean and had free tea as well as a honesty fridge with beer and refreshments which was a cool touch! Our bedroom was spacious and the bed super comfy.

    This place looks a lot better in person than the pictures show. Staff were really nice, the fellow guest were really cool and the overall environment of this hostel was warm and inviting. I will stay here again the next time I travel down to Rotorua, for sure. -Dajana

    We enjoyed our stay at the funky green voyager: The staff were very friendly and helpful and even gave us a personalised tour of the kitchen and communal areas. I originally booked this place via a friend’s recommendation and am happy I did.

    The hostel had a cool vibe, and did a great job making an effort to be eco-friendly. The owners, however, really pressure and manipulate us into several very expensive bookings, under the guise of being discounted. For example, the manager recommended Waimangu, and later told us we owed money for the booking. She charged us $85 for the tickets, when they really sold for $45. We were told the rest payed for transportation, though we certainly could have Ubered for much less. That really sucked

    In a door style room, there is no key or lock. Anyone can come into the room or hostel. Open space which is nice but not very safe in my opinion. They do offer to hold valuables however

    Not secure whatsoever, but a cute quirky little place. Probably wouldn’t suggest to a friend. Very kind staff though.
