    So an older single traveller I was quite worried about choosing backpacking accommodation. My room was spotless as we're the bathroom and kitchen facilities. The staff were really friendly and ready to help with directions and information. Fab place and haven't had the same quality of service in any other hostel. Would stay here again and recommend to friends.

    Chris owner and manager is very helpful---a genuine nice guy He is prepared to take one to activities for a small fee for his charity which is helping the kids of Rotorua

    Some of the backpackers do not clear up after themselves in the kitchen--a pity

    Not much .... Location in Rotorua?

    Noisiest hostel i've been staying in nz. Not really clean, I tried to boil some water for tea and found a dozen of ants inside my cup, also tried the microwave but not working. Bed not comfortable either.

    Helpful service.

    There was a school group so the kids were quite noisey but I thought quieter than drunken backpackers so I should be appreciative but it made the stay less enjoyable than the usual backpacker/international traveller feel.
