The Crash Palace is deeply integrated with the community. They have special programs that support charities such as helping the homeless, local arts projects, music, and local youth.
Located right in the middle of the city, they are close to everything including restaurants, bars, shops, and all of the other reasons why you came to Rotarua. With dorms and private rooms available, they offer accommodation for everyone's budget (including a female-only dorm).
Showers are always hot due to geothermal heating. They also have a hot tub on their outdoor terrace, a shared kitchen, free parking, a BBQ, laundry, an onsite bar, and a game room with a pool table, Wii, board games, and more. The building itself is renovated and kept very clean, and it is colorful with wall murals and interesting art. The vibe is fun, social, and relaxing.
