Basic but clean, comfortable and friendly. Needed a relaxing break and so happy I stayed here. Hosts are helpful, common rooms are well set up and location can't be beat. I will definitely be back...and will recommend to my friends. Thanks!

Easy walk to main streets, like most other lodges around. Car park available, communal rooms were warm and homely. We stayed in a double ensuite which was basic but comfy enough. Host was helpful. Overall this place was good.

Great for our little stop over. Basic but functional room. Room kept cool even though it was a very hot day which was good. Only negative was that there were a loud family in the room next to us and we could hear them quite a lot through the wall but it didn't stop us sleeping so all good.

We had such a great time staying in bradshaw's travel lodge! There were such a chilled atmosphere with Music and in the eavnings we were sitting on the terrace talking to the other backpackers. The host is the Best and He actually taught me how to play guitar. We can highly recommend this place :)

The best thing about this hostel is its friendliness, both the staff and the welcoming lounge area. The kitchen and lounge were always kept very clean and were a great place to relax after a day of activities. However, I have to say that I was disappointed in the dorm room that I stayed in. Everything just needs a bit...

A small lodge close to town that has everything you need. The place is well-maintained and the host is a really nice guy. He explained to me really patiently where I could go to have a hot spring, and it turned out to be the best hot spring I have ever had. And he was really accommodating, in letting me...

On arrival looks shabby chic. Manager was very welcoming and friendly. Rooms where more than adequate and comfortable , clean and warm. Showers where fast running and hot. Breakfast could be improved with just offering toast along with hour cereal fruit and hot drink. Great looking Location within Taupo.

My girlfriend and I stayed in a double room with shared bathroom facilities and it was everything that was advertised with pluses like how clean and well kept the place is! It also has a really homely feel, and the decor and lay out makes it feel more like a homely B&B , what made this place a definite recommendation...

“look for an accommodation not to central (5-10 mins walking distance places are the best). Central hostels are just too noisy and normally close to a night club and noisy bars.”
