Stock up on food before coming!
A quirky little hostel near the Tongariro National Park. Restrooms, hot tub, Kitchen, and lounge areas are all more than fine. The couple who manages the facility are nice and helpful. The main caveat is that there are very limited testis and supermarkets nearby. Very close to the start of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing.

Great Place for Tongariro Crossing!!
We stayed here the night before our tongariro crossing hike. It's really convenient since its about a 20 min drive to the car park. You can book a shuttle that will take you there and pick you up with them. The owners were very informative and helpful with all my questions. The room was well heated with plenty of blankets to keep warm. There are private bathrooms and shared bathrooms outside the rooms and they were all clean. The kitchen is big and well stocked with everything you need to cook. I would suggest you buy groceries before you get there since I don't believe there are nearby markets. The wifi is a bit spotty, but still works. Overall, I would recommend this place since everything is well kept and close to the start of the crossing.
