You should tell that if we book yha hostels via your website we dont get the membership discount. That is dissapointing once you arrive 2 the hostel. Very bad from you


Great choice out of the few available in Mt. Cook village. Only improvement would be more outlets in the room. Right person dorm room with four outlets does not work.


The location is a little far away from The Hermitage where most of the activities are and so the walking back and forth (especially in the dark) might be a hassle. Other than the bit of distance, this hostel has wonderful facilities and friendly staff!


Because I Had to make a cancellation the day before my arrival at YHA Mt Cook I called the Staff There and explaniere that my Plan changed. Especially in a Too busy time like this Summer it is hard to Plan if all of the tourists want to get bus Tickets and accomondation. It's Not really fair to charge 38 Dollars from Backpackers especially if it's so hard to make plans because a lot of People are booking im advance!


A nice clean hostel with good facilities. The wifi is free and the connection speed is excellent. The kitchen is well equipped and clean. The bathrooms are clean and in good condition. There is a big TV room with plenty of communal seating. The 8 bed dorm we stayed in was a good size and had comfy beds. The staff were really helpful. This hostel also has a handy little shop where you can get a few bits and pieces if required.


nice hostel for nature lovers, spacious kitchen and dining room


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.
