    We loved it here! We had a spacious private room with one of the comfiest beds we've had so far! The kitchen is one of the cleanest that we've cooked in and there are two quiet lounge areas perfect for relaxing. There's access to a washing machine and dryer (for a small charge) and it's a two minute walk to the information centre in town.

    Was this a classy and delightful place to stay. Perhaps not the best for community-building, but the kitchen is a cute space. We had robins eating next to us in the garden and that was nice. Best beds I slept in while in New Zealand. The swimming pool is still a puzzle I need to figure out.

    It was a nice social vibe in the common areas, even though tourism is still pretty slow. Nice beds. Bring ear plugs for snorers or early (kiwi) birds and eye cover as no bunk beds means more light! Using a key is they only downside: need to bring it to go peeing at night and cash deposit for it is quite ancient. Cosier, more hostel-like than Rock Solid.

    Overall a decent stay. Staff was nice enough and most of the hostel was quite clean. Walls are paper thin, and the bathrooms need a majorly deep clean. The shower head in the womens bathroom was pretty gross. I think the towels are washed with a part soap, part concrete mix because I’ve never felt such stiff, scratchy towels in my life. Good exfoliation I guess. Location is ideal for downtown.

    It was a pretty relaxing hostel, and everyone was pretty nice. I would definitely stay again. I just wish that we had lockers to store some of our things, which wasn't a big deal. My main issue was my interactions with who I think was the manager? All of her interactions with me were very curt and not super friendly.

    Nice hostel, no bunk beds, good location, no lockers but room locked, limited parking so get in early if you have a car. No atmosphere unfortunately.

    Very homely feel to the place and plenty of common areas. Hot tub needs some sort of bench in it but still cool! Rooms all single beds which was great. Staff friendly & helpful. Ideal for a short stay in Rotorua. Car parking out the back but only a few spaces.

    The location is good. Near to everything. I just think the room needs a fan.
