Perfect stay for the Tongariro alpine crossing”

Perfect 1 night stay. Great staff and big clean kitchen. Only downer was having to pay for wifi but when the room is cheap it doesn’t really bother you. Quick tip: we were able to get a cheaper shuttle via Backpackerdeals so worth shopping around. We paid $60 for 2 people (with a code)

We booked a private double room with ensuite bathroom. When we came into our room, there were no towels. When we asked about that at the reception, the answer was "We don't put towels in the room. Guests must ask for it.". Strange policy! The kitchen was big enough with everything you need. Unfortunatly, tea and coffee are not provided for free. Wifi is also not free. If you want to do the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, don't book the shuttle with them. Even if weather doesn't permit the crossing, they will bring you to the crossing. There is a better shuttle service at Whakapapa Village.

Excellent location and friendly staff ”

The receptionist was friendly and helpful. The hostel is well located, close to a bar and restaurant, which was helpful as we could find some food at night when we arrived. Room clean and tidy. The only inconvenience was the noise coming from the roof at night (but I was glad that the people upstairs didn't take too long to fall asleep). The comum areas are very handy and we could find everything we needed. I would recommend that.

Listed as free WiFi, but that wasn’t the case. Our room smelled like a bottle of fabreeze was spilled everywhere, even with the windows open. It’s okay for the price, but there are better options if you don’t need the other facilities and just want a private room/bathroom. On the positive, It’s nice having a restaurant/bar right next door that is open late when not much else in town is.
