Excellent Hostel Jul 17, 2014
I arrived at this hostel just in time for the cheap staff-cooked dinner and soon got chatting with some other guests. The common area is large and clean with a friendly atmosphere, kitchen is well supplied. The dorm rooms were comfy enough and even quiet at night being well away from the communal areas. The kitchen/dining area closed around 11 or 12 I think, so not that convenient for late arrivals or midnight snacks, but this meant everyone else got a good sleep. There is a separate tv room when the dining/kitchen is closed, but it's quite small.
I got a lot of advice from the staff here and they helped me book a Tongariro Crossing hike, if you are fit and have time this is definitely worth it!
I ended up staying a few extra nights here as the hostel and people were great.
