Hostels three and four

Verandahs, Auckland

I spent one night here on my way from Paihia to Rotorua. It's outside the central business district, in Ponsonby, so it's much quieter, and a good place to relax. It's essentially just an old victorian house that's been turned into a hostel.

Pros: Quiet, no bunk beds, cool part of town, no TV

Cons: Far from the bus terminal, no supermarket within walking distance

Funky Green Voyager, Rotorua

My favorite hostel so far, Funky Green sits in a residential neighborhood south of the city center. It is very cosy and welcoming.

Pros: Good atmosphere, comfy beds, beer fridge, helpful staff, no TV

Cons: A bit of a hike from the bus terminal, but it is worth it
