Berkenhoff Lodge Taupo Reviews
Simply AWFUL Jul 24, 2010
Berkenhoff Lodge was one of those travelling experiences that you wish to avoid, but when you stumble across, quickly hope to forget. This place was run down, shabby and operated by a couple of rude racially predjudiced people who really do nothing for the reputation of their town. Which by the way is a fascinating and stunning place. I was made to feel unwelcome to use the facilites like the lounge and dvd selection, was spoken to with complete direspect and disdain by the managment, and chose to pack my bags and leave "in the middle of a storm", rather than stay a second longer. Berkenhoff Lodge need to be dragged kicking and screaming into the modern age, with their prehistoric attitudes to racial minorites, hideous decor, and the staff sent on some kind of complusory customer service boot camp before they are allowed to swindle the hard earned cash from easy going backpackers who just want to me made to feel at home and have a good time. This was the worst hostel I stayed in in 8 months and over 60 accomodations and counting. That is some achievment
