    Cannot fault them, would 10000% stay again. Was the best hostel we stayed in New Zealand. Moose is so lovely and helpful and the place feels like home away from home. WiFi is amazing, kitchen big, TV room with loads of movies and a hot tub 😍 it is right next to the I-site and beside everything you need in town. Everything is so clean and no bunk beds!

    This was hands down my favourite Hostel in New Zealand. The accommodating staff and home feel made our stay amazing. In addition, the Kitchen was huge and had everything we needed, along with a BBQ. The hot pool was a surprise and just made our stay even better. Great location too!

    My friend and I stayed here for two nights while passing through Rotorua. We were blown away with how kind and personable the staff were! They gave us wonderful recommendations of things to do and places to eat in the city, and were accommodating with our very early checkout time. The rooms were comfortable and had no bunk beds, which was a definite plus. I'd definitely recommend this charming hostel to anyone looking to spend some time in Rotorua.

    Most comfortable bed of my trip. Nice not having bunk beds, every bed had a night stand and outlets. Friendly & helpful staff, one of the girls is an amazing artist and decorated the nightstands. Great location. Only negative: shower took a good 10-15 min at least to get warm.
