Set in one acre of landscaped grounds and gardens, A Plus Lodge consists of four separate single-level buildings: two accommodation blocks, one complex block (kitchen, dining and common room, reception, laundry), and one garage block. The walkways from the main complex block to accommodation blocks are all covered. It’s your ideal hostel close to the Tongariro National Park and Lake Taupo. We offer budget backpacker accommodation close to the world-famous Tongariro National Park and Lake Taupo, and we are about a 35-minutes drive to the Whakapapa ski area on Mt Ruapehu. The Whakapapa ski field and Tongariro Alpine Crossing shuttle bus leaves from A Plus Lodge - your Tongariro hostel.
