    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.

    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

    Really great central hostel with everything you need! Two chill out areas and lovely lovely rooms! The dorm room was massive and really homely. Beds were comfy and were standard singles not bunks which was nice! The only thing it needed were some lockers for valuables

    Clean and nice place to stay in Rotorua. Central location and really close to Intercity bus stop. No lockers in the rooms. But no bunkbeds either!! Really really hot spa in the backyard (honestly take a water bottle with ya..). Not really social place although i’m guessing it was because there’s not too many people around this time of the year.
