small, very small, "cozy"
The room was so small we could barely stand after getting our luggage in. The hotel was clean but the decor has 70s - 80s vibe. The fridge in common area is not accessible after 2230. Wi-Fi is limited to 200 mb per guest.

couldn't have asked for better!
staff, location, facilities
Highly recommend if you're visiting Rotorua. The team there offer a warm welcome and go that extra mile to make sure your stay is a great experience. 2 mins from the I-site and really good location to explore the area from.

Good value for money
Nice staff, near tourist center, good area
I didn't expect there would be 2 tvs, one in each room. The room was comfortable and warm despite cold weather outside. It's a well maintained backpacker hotel.

Budget accommodation in centre of town
Location, value, convenience
We spent most of our time out and about in and around Rotorua, but the hostel was a decent enough place to lay our heads for two nights. We had a twin room which was actually two bunk beds in a very small room with a tiny window - so there was not much natural light. Bathrooms again were small but clean, and served their purpose (especially compared to other hostels we stayed in). All in all, a basic but comfortable stay; a bit cramped but no real complaints, given the value.
