The Hostelz.com Review

Extreme Backpackers is the most centrally located hostel in Turangi. It is a family-owned hostel with extremely clean and well-kept facilities.

The Location<\b>

Extreme Backpackers is the most centrally located of all the hostels in Turangi. It is a few minutes' walk to the bus station, i-Site, supermarket, and shopping mall. It is easy to find the hostel, as it has big signs up. It is also next to the climbing wall, which can be seen from the bus stop. There are a few parking spaces available on the property and a lot of safe parking spaces on the street in front of the hostel.

Rooms and Bathrooms<\b>

The hostel offers private double rooms and four- and eight-bed dorms. The dorms are big enough and they all have good bunk beds. Bed linen is included and the rooms are very clean. There are no lockers available, but the rooms can be locked. There are very few power plugs in the room, but there are a few plugs available in the common areas as well.

Some of the private rooms have an en suite bathroom; all other rooms share one female and one male bathroom. There are only four showers, which is a bit little. Guests are encouraged to keep showers short, as there is limited hot water available. The showers don't have a door that can lock, and there is only a curtain in front of the shower, but there is enough space to get dressed. The bathrooms are very clean and a hairdryer is available from the reception.

Common Spaces<\b>

Extreme Backpackers has a living room with a big TV; a large, fully supplied kitchen; a dining room with guitars and games; and a nice garden with places to sit and hammocks. The living room is very comfortable with couches and mattresses to sit on. There is a flatscreen TV with video tapes and a book exchange. The kitchen has everything you need (except for a freezer) and is very clean. There is enough space in the fridges and if you are lucky, the owners have fresh herbs from the garden available. The dining room is big and has several tables and some board games.
The best feature of this hostel is the lovely garden. Even though it's not very big, there are hammocks to relax in and there is a big barbecue for guests to use.

This hostel doesn't have their own shuttle service to the Tongariro Crossing, but they can book you on a shuttle from any company you'd like. There is free unlimited Wi-Fi with a good signal in the rooms.

Because of the many private rooms, the average guest of this hostel is a bit older than the average backpacker. The vibe is relaxed and quiet, but there is definitely a chance to meet fellow backpackers.

Summary<\b>

This might just be the best hostel in New Zealand! It is centrally located, extremely clean, with nice and functional common rooms. The family who owns this hostel go out of their way to make your stay as good as possible.
