Great hostel close to lakefront and nightife

Pros: Large clean room with ensuite, kitchen facilities, TV room and balcony
Cons: Alcohol allowed in room
Location: Great location close to lake and nightlife (such as it is)
We had a large room with 2 double beds so I didn't have to put up with the wife kicking me all night ;-) On site free parking and free wifi. Helpful staff who recommended an excellent Thai restaurant within walking distance as most bars and restaurants are from here. Would thoroughly recommend as a reasonably priced stopover in Taupo.

Noisy drunks all night. Close proximity to kitchen meant it was noisy outside my room all the time
