          This place is great. The owners are very nice and helpful. We got the family room (2 adults, 2 kids) and enjoyed the stay a lot. The hostel is very well organized and maintained. Absolutely recommended.

          This is a lovely hostel in the centre of Rotorua, close to the main attractions and walking distance to the supermarket. Rooms are comfortable and clean. There is a well equipped kitchen and nice lounge area. The hot pool is also nice to relax in.
