15min walk to start of the walking tracks. Not so many long term stayers, so nice atmosphere. Male bathroom smelled.


Good place to meet people and staff are nice. No lockers in the rooms but some outside. They need to change the washing sponges in the kitchen more often but other than that the place is clean.


Don't miss this spot.


slightly more expensive than usual hostels elsewhere in NZ but we had a good stay.


NO HOT WATER. Please fix that.


A nice enough place. Nothing special but fine.


First-class YHA hostel in a sensational setting, literally within the shadow of Mt Cook . Furnishings, fittings and resources are of the usual high standard with generous size bedrooms and a more-than-adequate kitchen. Ideally situated for the Edmund Hillary Alpine Centre and a number of easy-to-difficult treks into the slopes and valleys that surround the hostel. I doubt whether there is a hostel with a better view than this one. Plug it into your plans and you won't regret it . . .


free sauna is the best. no supermarket in town.
