    Really good location if you're wanting to do the alpine crossing and it's a nice hostel. However theres not much to do there unless you are doing a big walk so if it's bad weather you're a bit stuck and Wi-Fi costs which is uncommon for a YHA in our experience. Maybe plan youre trip when you know the weather is likely to be good before booking to avoid cabin fever. We had read reviews about bed bugs but we had no problems with this in a twin room.

    Great place to stay before and after your Tongariro hiking! Stayed with our group of 5 travelling together. Great kitchen to cook in and prepare snacks for the hike. Cool rock climbing walk right where our room Entered from. Only issue were the mattresses were really soft so not too comfortable after the hike with sore muscles. Overall a cute chill lodge to prep or chill out for the hike!

    Well situated. Good services. Room did not have a window, therefore very smelly and stuffy room. Other rooms were ok.

    Wifi is very expensive, beds had bedbugs which I didn’t find out about until the next morning when I woke up with around 50 bites. Also the showers could do with an upgrade. However it’s easy to organise shuttles to the alpine crossing and back.
