The receptions are so friendly and helpful. I checked in at the mid night after 1am. The reception was still friendly and helped me out carrying my heavy luggages to 3rd floor. Next day, the other reception recommended me where to eat the local food and how to pay the parking fee and so on. They have kind hospitality. The price is pretty a bargain compared to live in Auckland. I only paid 1/4 price of Auckland's. They ban drinking alcohol and smoke at the hostel which is great. It's also quiet and convenient to those major spots that I want to go. Quiet environment. I'll book more nights here to explore Rotorua:)
