Recommend to stay here
Hostel was really nice, good kitchen area with everything you need and lounge area was nice to relax in. They also have table tennis and you can watch people on the rock climbing wall. I stayed in a 4 bed female dorm with 2 single beds and a bunk bed. Super comfortable bed with a heater in the room which is great for this time of year. Only downfall was that there isn’t WiFi in the rooms and you have to sit in the communal area to use it. Great location though. Would return!

Good location and friendly staff but dirty sheets and poor WiFi.

Chose to stay in Rock Solid Backpackers Rotorua due to its close proximity to i-SITE and Hobbiton Tours pick-up / drop off points. Generally the stay was satisfactory except that the wifi connection was poor in the room and there was only one soap dispenser next to the basin (none in the shower).

The area of the city was convenient however the cleanliness at times was questioned. Improvements can be made.

Okay for 1 night, but nthg more
Great location, friendly staff. But the place doesn’t look exactly like the photos. The photos obviously looked much brighter than reality. (The kitchen looked depressing...) The wifi in our room didn’t work during our whole stay (2 nights) Bathroom was so-so, it’s not dirty, but it doesn’t look clean either.
