We stayed in the bouble on suite room, which was three separte rooms. Small kitchen/ dining room, large shower bathroom, and bedroom from which you could just see the sea! We were also able to use the main kitchen facilities. Very clean for a hostel, had to take your shoes off at the door.

We stayed here dec 06. It is a large new building so is still very clean and modern. You can walk from it to all the main areas of Rotorua. Would recomend the Pig and Whistle pub near by, great food and beer. We stayed in a double on-suite room. On the slight down side parking on site was limited and the rooms were very basic but overall a nice place to stay.

Stayed here Dec 06. After a long drive to come here and find and old run down hostel with nothing around but empty houses as out of season for skiing was disappointing. Not that we minded the peace and quiet and the scenery is great but the was old, bed sheets well worn and kitchen was dirty. Did not find staff very helpful. Has a massive room full of climbing walls if thats what you like. The best thing about the hostel was the great pub next door! :(
