Stayed here for 2 nights while travelling around new Zealand. Our double ensuite was clean and well equipped. I thought the 5dollar chilli was good value and tasty. Only downside was the communal area was very small and quite noisy at night and it is right next to the bedrooms. The staff were knowledgable and offered advice on and arranged activities around taupo. Would definitely recommend this place particularly for younger / solo travellers
