What a lot of sound at night! Much too loud. I did not know I booked a room in the middle of a bar or disco....... The double room was ok but very dark. The window could not be opened so I had to leave the door open at night (to get fresh air) what means it is less safe. The rest was fine, it was a nice big room. thanks!

Apart from having no curtains in our room, the facilities were basic but very clean, tidy and comfortable. Suited us perfectly! Loved having the bar next door and took advantage of the pool. We will definitely be back again.

Basically good value for money, very kind and helpful staff, very good location (do not miss thermal park across the street). The Lava bar nearby is really loud and for younger people. Fortunately I have brought a pair of earplugs with me and problem was solved. Otherwise for those not participating in Lava overnights sleeping would be a complicated thing.

Cheap so guess you get what you pay for. Rooms are very basic and school like. Smell a bit because there is a volcanic hot tub in the building! Pub opposite is good.

This is one of the best hostels we have stayed in on our round the world trip. We booked a two-person private room and ended up getting a room with a double bed, two single beds, a kitchen, balcony and en-suite. It was fantastic! The swimming pool is also fantastic and the place is in an excellent location, just a short walk from everything in Rotorua! Also, most shuttle buses to attractions around Rotorua stop here and not at other hostels! Brilliant!

As a backpackers this is OK I must warn anyone over the age of 35 that this may not be the best place for you. There is a pub on site and this becomes very noisy until about 3am. I am sure that younger people would find this an great place to stay, easily within walking distance of the main shopping and eating areas but not if you wish a quiet nights sleep.
