    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.

    Thanks for your review Danielle. It is unfortunate that you found the other guests unfriendly - we have found that the downside to free and unlimited wifi is less interaction between guests. Cheers Catherine and Neil
