    Not at good timing ”

    Public area is fine, 3 shower rooms / toilets upstairs, 2 shower rooms and 1 toilet downstairs, shower rooms are always busy that hot water was not enough for everyone. Location is good for a walk to Te Anau domain, 15 minutes to fresh choice by walking. Was booked a 6 people shared dorm but they arranged me to 8 people dorm. The locker was good and big, everyone got 2 USB chargers and 1 plug charger. Bottom bed isn't high enough to sit on. There are many things should be improved.

    Small Dorm With Double Decker”

    1. Location : Near town centre and lake (in walking distance). Its 2 hours from Milford Sound, Queenstown or Invercargil. 2. Food : NO Halal restaurant around this hotel. 3. Shopping : Can walk to town center - mini market and convenience store located at town center. 4. Facilities : Internet was ok in the room. NO Soap and towel provided . Room and sheet were clean. Bathroom quite far from the room. 5. Staff : Helpful. 6. Value for money : For RM 111.97 per night consider a little bit pricey for a small dorm with 4 peoples in double decker.

    Hi Lanni, I'm really happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, we love how close to town we are, it's great to be so near all the cafes and shops. Thank you for mentioning how helpful our staff were during your stay. We recommend all guests get a YHA membership. For any booking you do in person or thru the YHA website, you can save 10% on your nights accommodation! plus there are heaps of discounts right thru New Zealand you would be able to access with the membership. I hope you enjoy the rest of your time in New Zealand, Kind regards, Steff Ineson, Assistant Manager

    When we arrived they sent us to our room, which we then discovered had not been cleaned from the previous occupier. The staff responded quickly and moved us into a different room. Free wifi which was good. But a bit steep price wise for the room. But it did the trick for us as an overnight stop on our way to Milford

    A very averga hostel. The lounge is like a teachers-lounge and the rooms are simple. Like in other places in New Zealand it had not enough outlets; for 6 people just 1 !!! All in all okay, not great but good enough for 1 or 2 nights.

    Kia Ora Jaya, Looking at your reservation; you were booked into a 4 bed budget dorm, this room type sleeps a maximum of 4 guests and has 4 outlets to charge your devices. It might be possible that you were thinking of a different hostel. Kind Regards, Joel Ali, Assistant Manager

    Really nice stay”

    The hostel was quite empty during my stay (winter mid of June) and that's for it was lovely. At that time it was quite cold outside but he heater in the room was well working. Big kitchen, with everything you need, really lovely to cook there. The guy at the reception advised me the Fiordland cinema > great place if you are getting bored, watch the documentary :) Don't forget to go the birds sanctuary at 10.30 for feeding time as well :) Just sad I didn't stay longer to be able to do some walks One of my favourite hostel during my stay in NZ Highly recommended

    Reviewed June 27, 2017

    Hi Elodie, We make the hostel as cozy as possible in the winter. Efficient heaters in the bedrooms and a communal gas fire keeps everyone toasty in the evenings! You would have found it quiet when you stayed because we had closed off more than half of the hostel to refurbish our main bathrooms. That work is now complete and the new facilities are open so we expect the hostel to be a little busier again. We recommend people book ahead to secure the room of their choice. Our reception staff are locals and are full of great advice on the area and the things to do. Hopefully you can come back again in the summer - Te Anau and our hostel are perfectly positioned for access to some fantastic walks! Kind Regards, Joshua Keeble, Assistant Manager

    Great ”

    We booked 2 twin sharing rooms. The room was very clean and bed was comfortable. Guests are required to remove their pillow case, bed flat sheet and blanket sheet when check out. This ensure that new ones are replaced For the next guest. There is a very big shared kitchen facilities for the guests to use. It would be great if the hostel provides oil, salt and pepper for cooking. Overall it was a very pleasant stay.
