Super hostel!! Best in Wanaka

View, TV room, In the centre
Very nice hostel...would definitely recommend it
Joyce C. Couples Singapore, April 18, 2015
Conveniently located Hostel

Value for money, lively and good location.
The place is constantly lively with a spacious common area equipped with a fireplace and pool table. The double ensuite room is slightly too dim for our liking. The place is more like a hostel with good sharing facilities. It is just a few minutes walk from the town centre and Lake Wanaka. As far as budget goes, this place offers comfortable sleeping accommodation at a value-for-money price.

location, good room with ensuite, staff good info

location, good size kitchen and nice room
not enough shower and toilet, nearby got a good night pizza booth, dark enough to see stars at nearby hill, walking distance to Wanaka and big supermarket nearby, near lake, free parking bays, book exchange. Fuel station open early closed early too.

Excelent value for money!

Friendly staff and very good located.
They could use some protection for bugs on the windows. Insect proof nets are needed. All the rest is perfect.
Yung H. Couples Hong Kong, December 25, 2014
great hostel at a great town

location, friendly staff and good price
The stay was excellent. Room was clean and tidy. Quite yet great view in the ensuite. Good experience to prepare meal at the friendly kitchen, and enjoy it at the dining room together with a great lake view. One little hiccup we had was with the toilet flush in the ensuite, the staff tried to fix it right away. Definitely didn't expect all these with the modest price we paid.
Hwan C. Solo travelers Malaysia, November 9, 2014

Really cool place with great view

Great view, warm staff, well-equipped common kitchen
We stayed in the double ensuite with mountain view. The view was really great. The common kitchen was well-equipped and we had fun at the pool table too! Definitely will stay here again.
Matthew H. Solo travelers Australia, August 24, 2014
Excellent value for money.

The Location, Facilities and Cleanliness.
A great place to stay with heaps of value for money. Location is perfect with Lake/Mountain views from lounge/dining room and within walking distance to the town. I stayed in a 3 bed room which had a decent amount of space for a hostel and bathrooms are cleaned regularly. The kitchen is spacious and can accommodate quite a few people wanting to cook. All in all an excellent stay.
