    Friendly staff with tonnes of tips. Was recommended a bar to watch the All Blacks and saw the hostel team there too! So not just a random suggestion! Really good atmosphere would recommend to anyone!

    Wish I could bottle up this place and take it along with me in my travels. Clean, comfortable, quiet (though that might change in the busier season). Fast, functioning Wifi. *no bunk beds!!* Outlets next to each bed. I had such a lovely stay and the staff was very pleasant as well. Highly recommend!

    Biggest shoutout to Moose, Rayna and family for making my stay as comfortable and enjoyable. These people went above and beyond for my stay. Helping me with the best places to go to, how to save money, ensuring that everything was okay. You would be crazy to not stay here, especially with the excellent service you get. Plus, no bunk beds, amazing WiFi, clean and spacious room, great showers, very warm (esp for the cold) and great space as a solo traveller! I love you Moose and Rayna! Bless you!

    Hands down one of the best hostels I have stayed in. The lady who owns this place is the kindest person who went out of her way to show me things to do and where to go. She really made all guests feel so welcome and at home. Amazing to not have bunk beds too! Beds are super comfy and everything very clean. Bonus spa pool out the back too. Other guests staying here seem to be like minded chill people too. Great location, 2 mins walk from bus station. 100% would stay here again.

    One of our all time favorite hostels! The single beds were so comfy(No bunkbeds!), the whole place was spotless and the huge kitchen was very well equipped. The staff were awesome and even threw a little Halloween party! The spa pool is perfect for after a long day of exploring and the location in town is amazing! We absolutely loved it here, the only small negative was no lockers in the rooms! But they have a storage area for bags.

    Nate was great- very helpful and gracious about letting me in late. This location is perfect- I came in on the bus which stops at the information center literally a block away. The meeting point for the Hobbiton Tour departing Rotorua is also less than a block away. Made for a very convenient experience for me!

    Stayed for two nights and the hostel was lovely. There were no bunk beds and the rooms were very spacious which was a really nice change from the other hostels I’ve stayed at. A lot of the guests were adults and/or staying long term which is fine, just not much of a party hostel. There is also a reallllly relaxing spa pool in the back which you should definitely take advantage of!! Would definitely stay again if back in Rotorua

    The staff was really lovely! Clean place and so comfortable with the single beds. Atmosphere not so suitable if you're solo travelling and want to socialise but might just have been the timing. Comfortable stay.

    A good hostel with proper beds, rather than bunks. A lot of people live at the hostel on a long term basis.

    Nice location, good facilities. Beds are comfortable. Could improve in terms of security by providing some lockers in the rooms
