Booked a twin room with shared bathroom for my weekend getaway from Auckland. Overall the hotel is showing it's age with stained carpet, worn wood furniture and faded sheets, but it's clean enough for the weekend and hey, you get what you pay for. As I went during the ski season, the placed was packed for the weekend and there were heaps of noisy youths who seem to like to stand in the corridor outside my room for their conversations. And they seem really excitable because they like to talk at the top of their voices even till late at night. The kitchen was also filthy with unwashed dishes, crumbs and leftover food bits, but again I think the youths are the culprit here again. I won't say the management are totally faultless here, as they should exercise some crowd control.

We stayed here for two nights. It is located in National Park Village but if you do not have a car, it's about a 10-15 minute walk to the cafe / 4 square in the front of the village. There seemed to be a few closed (seasonal?) restaurants right around the place but for the most part nothing in the immediate vicinity. They provide 50 free megs of internet per day per person. The second day the person gave us an extra 100 which was nice. The internet was slow and did not extend into the room. The kitchen was clean, nice and adequate with everything you needed. They can provide help booking a T crossing shuttle. 30$ for a round trip. The double room was very basic but comfortable and clean. Bathroom was clean. The place was quiet for the most part. Value was good in Summer for a

Good room, with good shower and average heating. We arrived after reception was closed, but they could accomodate us with no problem. Kitchen is large and well equiped. Silence is incredible! We could sleep listening only the wind outside. Staff is very carefull about security for the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. They checked our equipment and lended me gloves and hats, and rented sticks and a wind breaker. I can say that, definitively, their worries saved our lives. There is no place to buy food in the early morning, before the bus departs (7 AM). So, be prepared with your food in the day before. No free wifi.

Stayed one night in a twin room. Beds were short (I am not very tall) and really squishy which I don't like. Enough space to store things. The room we had was right next to the kitchen which was a good size but we didn't sleep well as a group were drinking in the kitchen until the early hours and they may as well have been in the room with us, they were that loud. This backpackers has a huge lounge and hang out area with fireplace which no one seemed to be using. Didn't seem to be many people staying there but it was a Thursday.

This place is perfect if you are doing the tongariro alpine crossing (the pick up location is just around the corner). They have free parking spots and the haus is cozy, warm and nice with confortable beds and extra hot showers. There is a big common area where you can watch tv, read a book getting wormed in front of the open fire. Totally recommended
