Not a bad hostel, it's a bit quiet but the whole of Te Anau is so can't really hold that against the hostel. Staff are great, especially Mel. Loads of dvds to watch. Rooms are quite big, with good beds and heating. Kitchen has everything you need. Locks on doors are a bit annoying but overall a good hostel.


Very efficient and clean hostel. The atmosphere is not all there but it's winter.


Mel was so helpful when we were trying to get our Milford Sound trip and and other arrangements. She went above and beyond.


All around good experience, but it was a little difficult to find at night!

A good and clean hostel, with free wifi and a lovely fireplace to warm you up! It is perhaps a little on the expensive side compared to hostels in other areas I have stayed in that have provided a little more. However, it is in a good location and is a well thought out and nice enough hostel. Unfortunately, the atmosphere of the hostel for me was ruined by some other rude and unfriendly guests staying but aside from that I really enjoyed my stay and would recommend to anyone staying in Te Anau.


staff was friendly, room was sufficiently warm in early winter.


This hostel was good. Not a far walk to the main drag in Te Anau and then staff was helpful. Would recommend


Great hostel with super cosy communal area - perfect coming back from long, cold and wet hikes. TV room with cool DVD collection. No complaints, would definitely stay here again!


Clean and very nice hostel. Big rooms with nice beds. Friendly staff. Great tv room with lots of movies. Would definitely recommend this hostel!


Great stay, friendly and helpful staff. Really nice atmosphere.


Great stay. Would be very happy to stay again. Clean, quiet and friendly.


Kitchen can get a bit crowded at times but other than that its a cool hostel :-)


The hostel was fairly basic and the staff are friendly!


Internet could be free.
