We stayed on a very queit night, and had a 4 bed dorm to ourselves. TV room was great as were the kitchen facilities. Like most places in NZ no free wifi.

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

Some residents left a significant mess in the kitchen. Staff need to post more notices on kitchen etiquette and keep an eye on behaviour. Also noisy group outside in garden at 10pm keeping awake residents trying to sleep in bedrooms for early start next morning. Staff not on duty.
