Such a great place to stay with kids. Games room and dining room offer plenty of space to relax. Narnia movie room is a real treat. Could do with better drying room facilities - dehumidifier over night didn't really cut it. Main bathrooms could also do with more ventilation, clean but truely sodden making them less than desirable to use.

The Crossing backpackers is very conveniently positioned between Turoa and Whakapapa which was great for us as we were able to pick the ski field that was most sheltered in the wet and windy conditions. We arrived after the reception was closed but as promised our key and instructions were waiting for us and our rooms were easily found. The large kitchen is very well equipped and easy to use. Our only gripe was our extremely noisy neighbors in the next room. Our room was a great price for a large group.

I had an excellent stay at the Crossing Backpackers, it was perfect for my needs, giving good access to the park for trekking.
The owners Leanne and Shaun were very helpful and friendly.
It had very good facilities - just remember to take your food with you if you have no transport, nearest shop is a couple of miles away.
