The private rooms are tiny. Maybe ok for one night, but don't expect to be able to unpack. There is zero storage space for bags or content! Beggars belief why there is no under bed storage or even shelves. After a long day travelling, don't expect to be able to relax. Our room was hotter inside than the already toasty outside temperature. One would have thought that staff could have left the windows opened and closed the curtains to air the room and stop the sunshine heating it up. The heat, the lack of space and the squashed nature of it all isn't pleasant. It maybe ok for some travellers, but it certainly wasn't for us. There was spilt milk over the kitchen floor, showers and toilets with dead bugs on the ceilings (clearly been there for days), doors which need to be rehung so you don't have to slam them to close. This place needs some serious TLC. The photos on booking.com and the company's official website need to be refreshed as the room we booked did not match what was given to us on arrival.
The Kitchen is locked until 8am and nobody mentioned that when checking in, so when we had to leave early we were unable to access the kitchen for the items we had pre-prepared for an early start.
I loved how nice and comfortable the beds were and the bed curtains always add that extra but of privacy. Friendly staff and well equipped kitchen.
Every thing was good!
The place is a little bit off from the city centre but still within a walking distance. It was clean place (bed, bathrooms and kitchen -> all that matters). Staff was very nice and answering all the questions and giving you advise. You can book tours and Tongariro crossing shuttles there. They also have bikes to rent. I was sleeping in a 8 person dorm (unisex) and I had a good sleep and the room was spacious. Overall a very nice place to stay. The outside terrace near the kitchen was very nice with the view and everything.
The kitchen was pretty clean considoring that a lot off people were using it but the kitchentowels should change more often. The kitchen was sometimes a little too crowded for my taste. And you should know that if your roomates go to Tongariro crossing they will wake up between 4-5:30 am which was a little annoying but of course not the hostels fault. Overall I don’t have that much to complain about.
The night staff member was friendly and welcoming even at 10.30, and off-duty staff member showed me to the room. Easy late check in and comfy bed!
Shower room lock near rooms 28-30 needs some love
