Taupo’s main attractions are based on nature which means a lot of free activities too. Huka Falls and the largest lake in New Zealand certainly aid in drawing people into town.

Tiki Lodge Taupo Reviews…

(Melissa S, UK. Stayed May 2018)
I recently stayed at Tiki Lodge for 2 weeks after been recommended the hostel by a friend.
The hostel is in a great location – just 2 minutes walk from the main town centre meaning everything is very easily accessible to get to without the noise from the bars keeping you awake.
The communal bathrooms and kitchen were very clean. The tv room and chillout area complete with fire were very welcoming and a great place to relax and meet other travellers.
The staff are very friendly, chatty and helpful. I would definitely stay here again if I ever returned to Taupo.


When asked about what makes Tiki Lodge different from other Taupo backpackers the manager, Thea had this to say…
“A view to die for across Lake Taupo to the Mountains which you can enjoy from our upstairs balcony outdoors or the warm communal lounge inside”
