    Plateau Lodge was great! Bathrooms were pristine. Rooms were spacious even for the four bed bunks, and already stocked with extra blankets and pillows. The wifi was limited then you had to pay was the only negative for me. Will stay again.

    I stayed here 2 nights to do the Tongaririo Alpine Crossing. It has everything needed for a comfortable stay plus a few extras like the hot tub which was nice! It was super clean and rooms are comfortable. The kitchen area is kitted out well and there was a good atmosphere with other travellers around while I was there. Good location - the town is tiny anyway - but the park shuttle stops just outside and you can hire gear just across the road which is handy. Would recommend!

    Exceptionally clean. Nice common areas. Good kitchen facilities. Free WiFi limited to 200mb and only for 24hours. Towels and linen provided. Easy to arrange transport to Tongariro crossing from the hostel.

    Very clean hostile, the rooms were small but did the job. The common area and bathrooms were nice. Biggest problem was that there was no cell phone service or Wi-Fi unless you checked in during hours you could pay for it. They also close the hot tub pretty early. Other than that it was great!

    Very Good

    Had a 4 bed room and the layout of was very strange. My bed was right next to the door so everytime someone would come in/out I would get the full light from the hallway in my face (because of the weird setup you had to open the door fully to get in rather than just a crack). There was also a sink on my other side which again, made it quite uncomfortable when people were using it. There was only one outlet in the room and unfortunately it was taken over by the heater that needed to be on.

    This is a good in transit lodge for the people doing the tongariro and thats pretty much just that. There's isn't much around. It's not close to anything so make sure you have what you need to eat (more so if you do the crossing). The staff is friendly and the facilities are ok. This is a place where you just sleep and leave and its sort of the feeling it gives.
