Great hostel, heating in rooms and big kitchen. The woofers in the hostel not so nice, came in the room without knocking. Other staff excellent.

The staff was very friendly, fun and helpful. They were well informed about the walks and other activities in the region. Everything was very clean, big kitchen, big garden with bbq, good heating in bedroom, tv room and lounge. Free DVD hire, washing and drying clothes not too expensive... And this hostel does a big effort to support nature by recycling and hanging up tips and tricks to help the environment. Other hostels could take this as an example! There's no global gossip internet but telec

Decent enough hostel. Room does not automatically close which lowers the security. No free wifi.

More power sockets in the dormitory rooms, located next to the bunks, would be helpful

Loved our stay here. Full marks to the cleanliness at the place, specially the toilets that are maintained immaculate. The staff are very nice and helpful. The hostel is located close to the lake and makes it an excellent location.

Nice and clean hostel with free unlimited wifi for YHA member. Everything was nice and confortable, only complaint would be that there is not enough plugs in the rooms and that atmosphere was lacking. Basically, on the two nights I was there there were big families and a big bus group only talking in Ducth among themselves, which did not make it very welcoming... It was also hard to access kitchen or lounge because of them.

A very well-run hostel. It was clean and had ample supplies of everything that we needed. It is very well-located and the staff were first rate. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in recommending this hostel to others.

One more stay in YHA Te Anau after doing the Kepler Track was perfect to organize myself, relax and recover with the big and comfortable beds and the friendly atmosphere. Definitely I like it totally. :)

Very clean and organized hostel, looks like a hotel. Beds are comfortable; kitchen is big; there is an outside space for barbecue. Showers and toilets were also great, but there could be more of them. Location is 5-10min walking from the lakeside, but that's not a problem since walking in Te Anau is really nice. Very few car activity in the streets, hostel is very quiet during the night. Breakfast and internet were not included, however.

Too many people. Not enough plugs to recharge things. I called this hostel the land of NO. No towels, no wifi, no nothing unless you pay for it. So many better hostels around. I did not like Te Anau. Tourist trap
