Haka Lodge Taupo is a nice place to stay in Taupo. The shower is good and the bathroom is pretty clean (all the time). Fair price and perfect localization. Me and my partner enjoyed a lot and we will be back soon for sure :) Late check in is a free service, what is great.

Great reception, room furnishings and condition very good, but quite small. Facilities excellent, clean and well stocked. Only minor issue was inter room acoustics may contribute to your kids getting an education outside the normal curriculum.

Great hostel. Has all amenities that you need, clean, warm, and comfortable. Great kitchen/dining set up. Guests respect the house rules and room felt safe. Booking, check in and out were all easy. Location was great - easy walk to town and supermarkets. Would stay again.

Travelling with our little bubs to Auckland was a long trip so we organised to stay in Taupo on the way there and back and this place was perfect for just that, the late check in was also a life saver so we didn’t have to stress and arrived in one piece.
