"Amazing service and facilities!!!"
Price is great- you can walk into town, they are basically an information centre, so incredibly friendly, they go the extra mile. The sauna is great. There lounge room, dining room and kitchen is great...bathrooms and showers are great!

"Great Stay"
Clean, comfortable rooms with a spacious and well equipped kitchen and friendly staff with many small services and events to help and entertain travellers. This is an excellent spot to stay for a few nights and hopefully meet some amazing people.

"Best Backpackers"
I saw a lot of backpackers in NZ, but this one is one of my favorite. It's in the center of Taupo,just 5min walk to shop, 10min walk to the lake and 25min walk to the hot pools. The rooms are very confortable and cheap, the kitchen is really big and very well equipped. There is a TV room, internet room, a lot of sofa, a sauna.The office staff have always the big smile, and take time to show you all the facilities when you arrive. You can ask one million of questions to the girls at the office, they take time to talk with you. The atmosphere is really smiley, friendly and safe.

"As always, a great stay"
My family and I have been staying at this backpackers for over 7 years. We love the atmosphere and al staff are very helpful.Rooms and beds are very spacious and comfortable and the option an ensuite is always a bonus. Location is a 5 minute walk to town and literally a 30 second walk to the warehouse. We will continue staying here in the future and we believe it is a great place for anyone wanting to stay in Taupo for a very cheap price.
