Rude and disrespectful staff”
I find the male staff at the reception, was very rude, condescending and borderline racist , the way he spoke us, as we are young female Asian travellers. That day that we checked in , was snowing and he only provided 3 of us only one heater that didn’t even heat up properly , we had to call up to request another one, the same male staff was quite annoyed that we asked for the additional heater and telling us that it was snowing today and it was cold outside, that’s why the (non working) heater wasn’t heating up fast enough. if he had known this, he should have prepared the sufficient heating for us. We have been travelling NZ for 10 days and other accommodations and their staffs have been kind, friendly and helpful. Except this place. Stay away from this accommodation! Very waste of money!

OK for Backpackers etc”
The rooms were in a Camp set up for workers on the local hydropower station decades ago. Not realy up to the standard of a Motel. Buildings and rooms were old & tired.

Excellent”
I enjoyed my stay here. While not ideal for exploring Mt. Cook given the driving distance, Mt. Cook has so few available options that this was the nearest place I could stay. That said, it's a nice place. There are only two bunks per room, the rooms are clean and beds are comfortable, there's enough room for your stuff, and the atmosphere is laid back, social and friendly. Met some great people here during my stay. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Basic room for one night layover”
The double room with private bathroom is dated. There is a musky smell inside the room that gave people the feeling that the room is not clean, which i believed partly it is due to the exposed sewage pipe just outside the room where all the water from our sink and bathroom flowed over to there. It is an ok place just for 1 night, i do not recommend staying longer.

Female solo traveler”
I think being a female solo traveler made this location a little difficult to feel comfortable in. I would have booked a private room if I knew the showers and toilets were all co-ed/unisex. For some reason, using a unisex shower with no locks and being a girl traveling on her own just didn't seem like a good idea. I ended up not staying at all after inspecting the facilities. It probably would have been okay if I stayed but I didn't feel safe and they were booked out so I couldn't upgrade. Twizel is apparently very popular so I would evaluate my options carefully if you are a girl traveling on your own.

What you pay is what you get! If you can afford to pay more, choose others. Not suitable for family with young kids. I book room with ensuite toilet. The same building that I stayed, also got dorm. Very small basic room.

The 3 BR cottage we stayed in was so cold the individual heaters were just not enough to keep the space warm, and there was no heater in the separate shower & toilet cubicles. Not worth the money we paid. The staff was rude, not sure if that was due to the Kiwi humor we didn't understand.

Excellent”
Location is great and the four-bed dorms are comfortable, there is even a sink and a TV in there and the heater keeps the room comfortably warm even when it's chilly outside. My only complaint is that the walls are extremely thin, so you can hear everything that goes on in the hallway or in the neighboring room just as clearly as it would be in your own room. Our neighbors were loud at night, so it was annoying. Also this was low-season and there were very few people in the house, I can't imagine what it's like during a busy period.
