      very good hostel

      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.

      Once you recover from the overwhelming sulphur stench, which seems to come and go in unjustified waves, Rotorua is a great place (I can't quite bring myself to call it a city). We are very glad that we decided to forgo remaining with our lovely Stray crew and, rather than have just an afternoon here, have spent two nights. It turns out we weren't …

      Hello all!

      So, this week I did my final days of placement in Te Awamutu. It was a great week, partly because i was so excited about finishing so I can travel, and partly because I got to do a lot of calvings!

      I got to spend my last week with only one other student, which meant that I could spend a lot more one on one time with the …
