Liked: This place was amazing! Super close to the bus stop and pak n save. The staff was super friendly and helpful when planning activities to do. The rooms were great and clean as where the bathroom and kitchen. Even though we had to check out at 10 am they allowed us to hangout in the lounge and watch a dvd until our bus left at 2. This place was great and I would tell anyone to stay there!

Liked: I was in a 4 bed female dorm on the 2nd floor and the room was very spacious and the beds were so comfortable! The kitchen is quite large and the common room is a nice place to relax. The shared bathroom facilities were pretty average, but decent enough. The rooms had lockable cupboards that you could use to store your luggage, which was really handy, and they also had a luggage room with the same cupboards. The property is located right in the main town center area of Rotorua, a short walk to the cheap PAK'nSAVE supermarket, the i-SITE, the lake and many food places.

Disliked: I noticed a lot of insects in the bathroom and spiderwebs on some of the doors. These facilities could probably be maintained a little better, but it didn't bother me too much.
