Welcome to Off The Track! The Gateway to the the Tongariro Crossing, National Park and River.
We are a backpackers hostel in the summer and a holiday bach in the winter. When you book Off The Track you will have the ENTIRE building to yourselves, no other guests.
Hosting from an old-fashioned township building, settled in amongst 5000 square metres of garden so it's never hard to find a quiet spot in the sun if you want one. Our garden offers fantastic views of Mt Pihanga and the surrounding hills. We are a short, 35 minute drive from the national park and snowy mountains, the supermarket and bus stop are only a 10 minute walk from the hostel and the Tongariro River is also within easy walking distance.
We are proud to offer free unlimited Wifi along with hundreds of movies to watch on our TV's hard drive and free off-street parking for lots of cars.
We are not far from the Tongariro river and only a 35 minute drive from the Tongariro National Park and Ruapehu ski fields.
Cleaning Fee: Due to some previous guests doing a very poor job of cleaning up and then making a big fuss when we charged them for it, we now charge a $50 cleaning fee as standard. Sorry but we will not waive this fee, it is part of the rental price now. This fee covers up to two and a half hours cleaning.
Bed linen is provided. We offer pillows, pillowcases, duvets, duvet covers and sheets. We provide bathmats and tea-towels but you need to bring your own bath towels.
Firewood is included in the rental price and all bedrooms and cabins have their own heaters.
Pets are allowed with prior discussion with us. We have a dog and a cat so any guest dogs must be well behaved with cats.
* A bond of $100 is payable when booking. This is refunded within 7 days of you leaving if there is no damage or cleaning for us to attend to
* Pets ok with prior approval, not allowed in bedrooms
* $50 cleaning fee covers up to 2 and a half hours of cleaning, any more will be deducted from bond.
* Any losses or damages we have to take care of will incur a deduction from your bond.
