Very nice hostel, great location.


The staff were so awesome- friendly and very helpful!! All facilities were very clean and our room of 8 people had a fair amount of room. Very relaxed quiet atmosphere, which fit the peaceful location. Nothing in the town so make sure to get food before coming. Only complaint was no lockers to store valuables. Ask staff for hike recommendations and they will tell you everything! You cannot miss going to Mt Cook and this YHA is great to stay at.

We stayed there for 2 nights and really enjoyed it. It was clean and the team was very helpful and friendly. :) Maybe the price could be a lil bit less.


Perfectly located right next to all the trails and hikes in Mt. Cook, helpful and friendly staff.


Great hostel, amazing scenery. Very quaint , super helpful and friendly staff. Big kitchen, quite clean. Bathrooms were alright.. mainly other guests that leave their mess, hairdryers are available at reception. Close to trails at Mt. Cook which was amazing. Wifi was pretty good and free!


Amazing location, right in the middle of incredible scenery. Staff was friendly and helpful, willing to spend those extra few minutes to go over great things. Large kitchen with lots of resources and FREE spices! Hostel was clean for the most part, basic untidiness was from other people staying in the hostel.


Great staff, cosy place, has a fireplace in the general area. Great kitchen, lots of spaces to cook, good equipment. Nice vibe, great location (all hikes are close and the landscape is beautiful). First night we had an eight bedroom dorm for ourselves, second night we were with five people. No lockers in the room (haven't seen them around, didn't look for them either though). Place gets cleaned very well! Paid WiFi for non-YHA members.
