We loved staying at the crossing backpackers. We came as a big group and Leanne and the team were so helpful, willing to do anything to help us out. The food was delicious, the accommodation clean and tidy, great for a big group. We loved that it was all under the one roof, which meant that when it rained, we still could hang out together without getting wet. The use of the spa pool was such a luxury after exploring the area. It was a perfect venue for us, great location to explore Ruapehu and enjoy the Tongariro Rafting. We will definitely be back again!
