We love to host young, friendly, outgoing, sociable people! We are not a palace but we offer good, clean accommodation, as much free stuff as we can provide and the cheapest Tongariro Crossing shuttle in the Turangi/Taupo area. Come and enjoy the summer sunshine with us! Let’s keep it simple, we offer… * Free, unlimited Wifi * The cheapest Tongariro Crossing shuttles ($10 cheaper than the Turangi shuttles and $30 cheaper than Taupo) * Free pasta & sauce meal every evening between 6:30pm-7pm * Huge 5000 square metre garden with all day sunshine on sunny days * Views of Mount Pihanga and the surrounding mountain ranges * Free off-street parking, enough spaces for all guests so none have to park on the street * Video library of 1000 movies and TV shows in our TV lounge * 10 minute walk from the supermarket, bus stop and town centre * Late check-in available (you MUST contact us to arrange check-ins after 8pm) And now some important information… Earliest check-in time is 2pm, it is not possible to arrive at the hostel before this time. $20 cash key deposit is payable at check-in. This is refunded when you return the key at check-out. Reception closes at 8pm. If you arrive after 8pm we can organise a late check-in for you but you MUST contact us beforehand to arrange this, otherwise you won't be able to access the building. Pre-payment by credit card may be required for late check-in. There is a 3% surcharge for credit and debit cards so it is cheaper for you to pay by cash. There are ATM's at the New World supermarket and Z petrol station in town which you may pass on your way to the hostel. We often have a big, friendly dog here. She's no problem but if you are afraid of dogs or allergic you may wish to reconsider your accommodation options. All private rooms are twin rooms (2 single beds). We do not have any double-bed rooms.
