The Rec Room is a special area found inside the Mushroom Castle in Super Mario 64 DS. This room, located in the right wing of the mezzanine beyond the princess's room, features a drawer of colored boxes, each one containing a mini-game that Yoshi, Mario, Luigi, and Wario reveal as they catch the rabbits running around the castle who hold the keys that open the drawer's boxes, and then talk to the Toad in that room. The latter looks after the room, said to be where Princess Peach played as a child, and hosts the mini-games whenever the player wants to play in the Rec Room. The Rec Room's available mini-games can also be accessed on the Title Screen. Each player character has nine mini-games. Two are unlocked from the start, and the other seven are unlocked by catching rabbits, making a total of 36. Most of the mini-games are reused in New Super Mario Bros. The room contains other things, such as a piano, some Koopa shells, blocks, Bob-omb toys, Stars, and a mushroom-styled table near the entrance of the room. There is also the painting of the course Sunshine Isles, and in the back of the Rec Room is a ★ door to another room, which contains the entrance to the Goomboss Battle portrait, where one of Luigi's rabbits is located.

The music that plays in the Rec Room's mini-game menu is an arrangement of Grass Land's map theme from Super Mario Bros. 3.
