    Hostel was really quiet hence poor atmosphere rating. Perfect for a stay in Waiotomo visiting the glowworm caves. Good facilities but room was slightly on the cold side.

    This was a pretty cool hostel, it felt more like a lodge. We had a private room and it was simple but had 3 beds down stairs, two beds upstairs and a shower in the room. There is a full kitchen to be used and a game room. There is no wifi in the rooms only in the game room but we were only here one night so that was not a big deal. Very good location if the glow worms are the reason for your stay. A quick drive to the trailhead or a walk to the stores where you can book tours.

    This is not really a hostel, the main dorm/ lodge is leased to 3rd party company , so it is more like a decent budget hotel with private rooms only. Breakfast was tasty but it's really lacking in atmosphere, beds were not the most amazing ever for $88.

    The place was pretty much empty for our 2 night stay, WiFi was awful and lack of facilities which is poor seeing as isn’t much to do in the evening in Waitomo. Girl who checked us in was friendly but the older guy was rude and unhelpful. Extremely dated and could do with some work. Didn’t eat at the cafe place as the tripadvisor reviews are terrible plus the food looked grim.

    The room was spacious and pretty clean (and bonus: had a mini fridge), but this was the least comfortable bed I can remember having slept on in my entire life. The bed was all springs (broken coils), and there was a terrible shrieking noise from the toilet anytime it flushed.

    The staff were very unfriendly and unhelpful. Bathrooms were really disgusting with freezing cold showers and is evident they are not regularly cleaned. Beds were uncomfortable and had hard springs poking you in the back all night and sheets were stained. Would not recommend this place to anyone.
