Our private room slept 4 people comfortably. Had own bathroom. Heating in the room was too hot though. Had to sleep with door open. Nightclub/Pub was right next door so would be loud on the weekends. Staff were very friendly though and felt very safe.

NZ Rookie Famil

It's right next to the pub so you can always meet new people. The rooms were really nice and clean. The staff was not all that helpful, but it was close to the geyers and the local attractions.

Affordable accommodation next to the hottest club in town!

This backpackers was within walking distance to everything in town. The best club (The Lava Bar) is part of the same complex so it's right next door! It was very affordable, and our room was a lot more spacious than we expected. Like any backpackers, you pay for what you get so don't expect a 5 star penthouse, however it was exactly what we needed and will definitely stay there again.
