"Thank you so much for your hospitality over the Raggamuffin Weekend! Our room was perfect and we loved how accessible it was to the town centre, shopping and everything was just a 5 minute walk away! The hostel staff were so informative and the receptionists were lovely and helpful! The facilities were great and my family and l will definitely be staying here the next time we visit Rotorua. You really made our stay in Rotorua the best we have ever had! I must admit we did not want to leave at all!" -Guest
