Good location, facilities were fine but average cleanliness. The parking is times street parking. Other guests were extremely noisy all night (yelling, slamming doors), and the room had no windows. Overall is was ok ✅

The facilities were budget which was expected, the value was amazing! The host was really nice and was willing to stay up until midnight for our arrival as we were running late. We are very thankful for this. A great place to stay!

Located centrally in Rotorua, this hostel is a great starting point in town and conveniently close to shops and places to eat. The hostel itself is basic and a bit dated but is serviceable and has what you need.

I found the rooms and bathrooms clean. Staff are helpful and the kitchen is a great set up and enjoyed the outdoor area to sit and eat my dinner. I have stayed here a few times the past 3 months and never had any concerns except for the town clock being on the opposite side of the room on one occassion. The clock is loud and chimes every hour so I would try to stay on the other side of the building if possible.
