Very good 8.2 From 91 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Great place as we were within walking distance of everything.

Very good 8.0
Chose to stay in Rock Solid Backpackers Rotorua due to its close proximity to i-SITE and Hobbiton Tours pick-up / drop off points. Generally the stay was satisfactory except that the wifi connection was poor in the room and there was only one soap dispenser next to the basin (none in the shower).

Fair 4.0
The area of the city was convenient however the cleanliness at times was questioned. Improvements can be made.
Sean, ca2 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Okay for 1 night, but nthg more
Great location, friendly staff. But the place doesn’t look exactly like the photos. The photos obviously looked much brighter than reality. (The kitchen looked depressing...) The wifi in our room didn’t work during our whole stay (2 nights) Bathroom was so-so, it’s not dirty, but it doesn’t look clean either.
HONG WA, hk2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Decent no-frills stay
Location was ideal. Place was mostly clean but could use a freshening up. There is a lack of windows in the common areas which makes it seem drearier. Very cool looking rock climbing wall. We had a private ensuite and we slept well. Bathroom was clean.
