Was too cold for the Deluxe Suite!

Near town center, friendly staff, Private parking available
We stayed in the Deluxe suite (26B) for 2 nights during the winter season and it was too cold! The windows cannot be shut tightly because most of the rubber pads were missing. As a result, cold air seep through the windows and into the room. You can also feel the cold air coming through the kitchen hood. The heater is pretty useless too... (My old computer is able to produce that same amount of heat). The location was good though as it is near the lake and town center.

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.

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.

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.

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.
