Cactus Jacks Backpackers
Lonely Planet review
If you’re looking for character, pardner, then this Western-themed spot is just your gunfight. Shabby-chic rooms range from Jail (dorms) to Madam Fifi’s bordello (two twins). Sociable staff, relaxed lounges, courtyard, and undercover thermal pool make it an ideal spot for weary cowpokes.
Our independent authors have visited Cactus Jacks Backpackers and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Rotorua.
