  • Pretty unfriendly staff, a bit far away from the main street/beach, rooms cannot be closed! Free spices, kitchen ok. Still, I would not recommend this hostel, there are better ones in Taupo.

  • I haven't even been there, but they charged me. I read the cancellation policy, and due to the hostels.com page, I needed to call them right away to cancel, so I did more than 24 hours before. I talked to the manager to this hostel and they also said I need to talk to hostels.com, so I did! But in the end, they charged me for 2 nights(not even just 1 night for no-show) and said no refund for me. I am really unpleasant about this situation and I strongly don't recommend this hostel.

  • Hi. The welcome was great as I arrived after 7.30pm but everything organised for me. Have stayed at YHA's in UK and thoroughly recommend Taupo YHA. Next time I will book direct which would be better but couldn't get hold of them when I needed to at *.30. Great place and service and facilities. bruce
