Merry Christmas! On the 24th and 25th December we’ll be throwing a Christmas Party with free food and BYOB plus Xmas day carols by candlelight and Secret Santa.

We’ve also got a New Year’s Eve pre-party and street party with live DJs in the house.

Thursday is our hot chocolate night. Every Friday we host a free BBQ, while Saturdays are for our free pool and pub crawl!

Stay with us on Sunday and you’ll get Monday and Tuesday free!

Enjoy a beer or wine in our large sunny outdoor courtyard.

Our rooms have windows, heaters and ample power points.

We offer you a range of free things to help your budget, such as tea and coffee, thermal mud masks, pasta and rice every day, herbs and spices in the kitchen, movies, popcorn, storage, off-street parking, a safe at reception for valuables, a storage room and Nintendo Wii which is free to use.

We have a massive DVD collection, a small bar for that cold beer, two kitchens, two dining areas, a pool table, an outdoor barbecue area and a thermally heated spa pool, all free to use.

Located in the city centre, our cosy backpacker’s has a focus on New Zealand art and music. We’re within walking distance of the government gardens, the Blue Baths, museums, Polynesian spa pools, Kuirau Thermal Park (free) and central Rotorua’s pubs and bars.

Our staff can share information on our local culture and great spots to visit for free in Rotorua. They can assist you in booking any of Rotorua’s many attractions and activities at discounted prices. As an added bonus, we are one minute’s walk from Pack’n’Save, so it's easy for you to get your provisions.
