Nice staff! Helpful! Clean, safe and well located. Just the internet is expansive, but it's NZ sickness to have expansive internet in hostels! I would stay there again! We were a couple and the room was pretty nice. Warm! It was a freezing day! Not a lot of toilets tough!

The Rooms are very nice and clean. The common area is a little bit small but nice. The bathroom is very small, the only have 2 showers and two toilets for everybody. The manager is a very friendly and gives good advice for walks and routes.

Great little backpackers in the middle of hokitiki! 5 minutes to the beach where you can watch an amazing sunset! Facilities excellent and john the owner is a speed demon with the morning routine! Would definitely go back and recommend

Beautiful hostel that truly feels like home. It's a small hostel with a big garden to relax. Not a party hostel but very clean and with nice rooms and common areas. Definitely recommend it.

A good but basic hostel. A bit small and everything is squeezed in to a communal space, but its all there and the rooms are warm. No lockers is a downside.

Great little hostel, with helpful staff and excellent facilities. Plenty of plug sockets in the room. Showers and toilets are shared, but they are always nice and clean.

comfortable little place just 5 mins away from the lake. beautiful lawn and view of the lake and the mountains. showers are a little small but the kitchen is good, the dvd collection is not too bad, you get $5 worth of wifi for free when you check in. good place to stay in wanaka.

Place is very cramped, walls are paper thin, kitchen extremely small to cater for the amount staying. There is two separate doors into room one to bring you into a hall for bathrooms and other door to enter room so people normally don't lock every door and doors were extremely hard to lock. Hate staying in places were you feel squashed

Hostel was ok, bed was comfy and showers were good. Bedroom and bathroom was clean. But the kitchen wasn't kept very clean, the surfaces were soaking wet most of the time. Interent was good. All in all ok place to stay.
