Rainbow Lodge is a purpose-built facility that offers low-cost accommodation on a self-help basis, similar to a ski lodge.
Sorry - no bellhops or valet parking for the Porsche but we do have secure off-street parking.

Beds are fully made up and Rainbow Lodge has central heating for the cooler months.

Our kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans & utensils along with cleaning up gear so you can create your own gastronomic delight. We have cold drinks available at our office - along with delicious fresh coffee, which is complimentary. The dining / common room areas are great places to meet travellers from all over the globe & share the day's activities or just sort out the world's problems!

Located just off Spa Road, we are on a quiet, tree-lined street that runs down to the lake & beaches. This is on the fringe of the downtown shopping area so you can take a short walk (5-7 minutes) to the shops, Great Lake Centre, bus terminal, supermarkets, movies, pubs and other entertainment Taupo has to offer. And - if you just need to relax, we've a sun-drenched deck and loungers where you can watch the world drift by and our 24 hour sauna!

Office hours for check in are 8.30 am to 10pm
Free pick up and drop off from Bus stops in town
Prices are per person per night.

My personal definition of a backpacker is not someone who carries a backpack, but someone who just wants to save money to travel longer.
