Rotorua Central Backpackers Reviews


We are located in a quiet, central location. On arrival we can give you a walking map of the area and a fantastic 2 hour walk to see many of the free things around us. We can offer great discounts onmany of the local attractions. The building was built in 1936 and has many art deco features of the period. Keep cosy in winter - we have geothernal central heating - the steam from the ground is transferred onto the water for the showers and spa pool as wellThere are two communal lounge areas - one is a quiet reading lounge, the other the tv/dvd room. There is a large, fully equipped kitchen dining area and plenty of seating in our outdoor barbeque area. Maximum dorm size is 6, and we are able to cater to many different room configurations, with a female only 6 bed dorm option. All beds are new with innersprung mattresses (no bunks). The double beds are king size. There is free parking at the rear of the building and some free parking on the road.
