          We stayed two nights in a double room which was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately it was next to the girls restroom, which was ok, but the hand dryer was very noisy especially at night. I'd recommend to provide paper towels or at least a sign that says "please do not use hand dryer between 11pm and 8am" or something like that. Other than that we had a great stay. Chris, the owner, is a great guy who is always happy to help and sorted us out with a cheap rental car for the day. It's also the only hostel I've ever seen that has free wifi and pasta and rice.

          Awesome hostel! Warm with well stocked kitchens, free tea/coffee and rice/pasta. 10 bed dorms are spacious with enough plugs. Had a fantastic time here.

          Morning, Vandaag gaan wij als eerst naar Te Puia. Hier hebben wij wel voor betaald hoor. Als eerste zijn wij gaan kijken naar Maori mensen die weven en aan houtcarving doen. Vervolgens zijn wij een kijkje gaan nemen in een mini Maori village, het kiwihuis en daarna hadden wij een optreden geboekt. Een Maori performance. In de rij was het een geduw …

          Goedemorgen, vandaag gaan wij naar Rotorua. Eenmaal aangekomen zijn wij langs de luge a.k.a. Real life MARIOKARTBAAN gereden, maar het weer voor de dag erna zag er beter uit, dus toch maar dagje uitgesteld. Na ongelofelijk mooie dingen te hebben gezien in nieuw-zeeland is het bijna niet te geloven dat deze MARIOKARTBAAN, ja dat moet in hoofdletters …
