In general, It was clean and tidy without ventilor

free wifi! clean kichen. Kind staff
In general, i can give 3.5 out of 10. Cuz it was a bit noisy at night time due to thin wall i can hear next room. And my room's bathroom was a bit smelly cuz of not working the ventilator. Without 2 of these, Very clean and tidy, Good bed,...etc!

Very bad experience

The kitchen is big. And nothing worthy to mention
The space of room is very limited, and with no any lockers or clothet inside the room where I can put stuff. The sound of doors close and open and the footsteps on the hall were so noisy that I didn't sleep well. It was a very terrible experience, and I am very not advise here to stay.

good facility can be managed better

centrally located, ensuite room, not too expensive
We went to 3 YHAs during the whole trip. While the other two gave us great experience, this one at Rotorua stood out as a black sheep. Firstly, there was blood stain in the bed sheet. With wide open window and door, the air exchange in the room as still poor even though it's windy outside. The kitchen was the biggest among 3 YHAs, but it was always messy. Clean tea cloth was always out. Rubbish bin location was so unfriendly to cooking. Bird poops were left on tables and chairs without cleaning. The facility was relatively new and nice, but better management and housekeeping would be beneficial.
