    Great location, staff at front desk were very helpful. We had a private double room and bed was hugeeee! Right next to bathroom and near showers which was great. Place was well laid out so other rooms couldn’t really keep you awake. Kitchen was spotless! A local guide also told me it was the best backpackers to stay in- deffo a great place.

    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.

    Fab place to stay. Really friendly staff (with lots of great recommendations) and comfy beds. I could check in and leave early without any problems. The location is fantastic. Only downside is the bathrooms are looking a bit tired, but that tends to be the case in most hostels.

    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.
