Lonely Planet review
A young crowd gravitates to this hostel, attracted by its publike hub (with retractable roof) and carefree style. It’s refreshingly modern in design with a beach-house feel, despite being on a busy road.
Our independent authors have visited Taupo Urban Retreat and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Taupo.
