KIWI PAKA: AVOID THIS HOSTEL!

The hostel located in the village 'Kiwi Paka' was a money pit and lacked character.
Unreasonable rates, plus additional charges for towels was one thing, but the common room being locked really did it for me and the people I was traveling with.
The staff were rude, and very patronising.

AVOID STAYING AT KIWI PAKA. (THERE IS ANOTHER HOSTEL NEAR BY, WHICH HAS GREAT REVIEWS, SO IF YOU DO STAY, STAY THERE!)

Nothing. Terrible accommodation.

Waitomo Caves Guest Lodge: Comfy B & B

Perched on the side of the hill, we really enjoyed our short stay here. Adorable accomodations, great hosts, and convenient to activities in town.

Most rooms are in separate buildings and have their own entrance.

Woodlyn Park: Woodlyn Park

Well this was an amazing place to stay in. We stayed in the plane and it was great. Have a look at the pictures in my Travelog - its amazing.

Staying in the plane was amazing - one of the best places I have stayed in while in NZ.

Kiwi Paka: Waitomo YHA

it's brand new, big and lots of space...

Waitomo is a very small place and so everything is very close by....

Abseil Inn: scary drive up or down

Lovely house situated high on a hill overlooking beautiful countryside and just out of Waitomo. Great breakfasts, lovely guest sitting room and wonderful views from the windows.... I include the one from our room.

Great breakfasts, lovely guest sitting room and wonderful views from the windows.... I include the one from our room. Plus the drive up to and down from the house is pretty unique, not without reason is it called abseil inn!! That driveway is STEEP.
