      This hostel was alright. The room was fine but the beds were really rickety and noisy every time you moved in them. The kitchen is big but has no appliances. It has hobs but no ovens. It does however have a really nice sun deck off from the kitchen with nice views of the lake.

      The worst thing about this hostel is the noise. It is over the road from a really cheesy, crap nightclub playing horrible music. The windows let all the noise through, the hostel seriously needs to invest in some sound proofing! If you have any taste in music or any desire to sleep before 5am, think twice about staying here.

      Sweet as, bru, thanks for popping by! Great to see you again. You will be pleased (or disappointed, you filthy animals) to hear that the **** and rotten eggs smell is kept to a minimum throughout this next adventure. We have left the odorous Rotorua for more fresh-smelling pastures... We're off to the centre of the North Island to Taupo and the …

      Nach einem leckeren Frühstück (ach ich würde so gerne noch länger hier bleiben, sogar die Betten waren genial), gings dann wieder mit dem Kiwibus weiter. Nächstes Ziel: Taupo. Auf dem Weg dorthin hatten wir oft gehalten und etwas angeschaut oder einen kleinen ¨walk¨ gemacht. Das Highlight von Taupo war für mich das …

      Lake Taupo is New Zealand's largest lake and is the size of Singapore! The town is fairly small but it has beautiful surroundings and everyone here is very friendly and welcoming! This morning I had the best lie in ever, I actually managed to sleep past 7 without being distributed which was great! Definitely needed the extra sleep after such a late …

      Thankfully it wasn't an early start this morning. We left the mountainous Waitomo at around 10:30am and began the day with a half hour bush walk in the Ruakuri Reserve native forest, where we walked into some large caves and saw all the limestone rock formations that have been gradually molded into shape by the water. Following our morning exercise …

      The beds in the Maori village were amazing, so much better than all of the hostels I've been staying in! It was a bit of a struggle to get up this morning, especially after staying up late! When I eventually dragged myself out of bed, I got ready for the day and then went for an all you could eat breakfast, so that was definitely good times! It was …
