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.

Overall a great clean hostel that I would not hesitate to stay there again. From what I saw the only improvements that I would recommend were as follows; Showers. I would add a couple of those cheap rubber door mats made out of old car tyres so when the floor is wet you have something to stand on to get changed. Also some clothes hocks would have be good. Dorms I would have liked to have had a locker/cupboard to lock my gear in.

Indoor communal area was small. No iron which was a shame. I think it is a bit cheeky to charge extra to leave bags once you have checked out. However, clean sheets and bathroom

Hi Deborah,thanks for your feed back,baggage storage is actually FREE,there is however a fee to hang around the hostel while you wait for your transport,check out time is always 10 o'clock and every one should leave by that time.
