Poor business managament. I booked this hostel for 3 nights, and found out the day before I was supposed to arrive it was closed for the holidays. Deposit was already paid weeks in advance. They claim they had contacted me. Have tried contacting property to resolve issue and they have stopped responding. Extremely frustrating.
Great central location. Clean. Nice balcony. The owners were fantastic and I enjoyed talking to them. Thank you so much for your hospitality.
The beds came with 2 PILLOWS. Enough said. :) Great location and free wifi.
Best. Hostel. Ever!! I absolutely loved Wanaka and this hostel was fantastic. Great staff. Beauriful view of lake and mountains. Free WIFI. Thank you! My only suggestion would be to add lockers to room, please.
Really lovely location. A bit of a walk from the town center, but worth it. WIFI was really expensive... seemed silly to charge when most places in town offer it for free. Rooms were pretty crammed and lockers would be nice. Overall clean and good atmosphere.
I didn't realize when booking this is NOT an actual hostel. It's a lodge with some backpacker dorms and communal kitchen. No lockers. Atmosphere wasn't like a normal hostel and there was nothing going on. Though, it is a beautiful location and if you're looking for some peace and quiet, it's perfect.
This place was RAD. One of the best hostels. Fantastic staff. Tons of free ammenities. Free WIFI. The "pod" beds were private and relaxing.
I wasn't too impressed with this place. Staff was unfriendly, wifi only worked by the office, and no lockers for security.
Mellow, relaxed hostel. Always had a movie going so you can just hang out if you need some down time. Friendly, helpful staff. Would recommend.
Honestly I was unimpressed with this place. It's WAY out of the city center, didn't have a great atmosphere, wifi didnt work too well, and the staff seemed a bit rude. I wanted to like this place based on the ratings... but I would skip it.
This was the BEST hostel. I just adored it. Katy was SO kind and helpful. Great vibes, funky art, musical instruments, nice kitchen. Free bikes and occasional free goodies. I would absolutely recommend this place. My only suggestion would be perhaps add lockers to the rooms.
If you're looking for a mellow, quiet hostel to get a good night's sleep, this place is great. If you're looking for something energetic and lively, check out the other hostels in town. Helpful staff.
Cleanest hostel kitchen I've ever seen. I loved the outdoor area. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Many ammenities and activities. A very FUN hostel. Could work on cleanliness. I know there are a lot of woofers working. Maybe a deep clean would be good sometimes in the bathroom/shower area... otherwise a nice stay.
Wifi was expensive. Good central location by bus lines and Mt. Victoria. Cute guy behind the counter was extremely helpful! Thank you. :)
Wifi was expensive. Otherwise, fantastic place to stay and extremely helpful staff.
One of my favorite hostels I've ever stayed at!! Perfect size. Great vibes. Great artwork. Free bikes to use. Thank you so much!
The vibe of the hostel wasn't very personable. Maybe it was too large of a hostel for my taste. There were no planned evening activites as far as I was aware. I think that could help.
Good little hostel, but without a car hard to get around the area. Keep in mind Hot Water Beach and Cathedral Cove are NOT walking distance. Staff was really helpful. A bit of a walk into town.
This place was OK. This hostel was HUGE.. 7 stories. WiFi was expensive. Not a very great communal area and furniture was falling apart.
Large, spacious rooms. Large personal lockers. Great place to stay.
This hostel was very comfortable and really did make you feel at home. The staff was excellent and there to chat or answer any questions. The place was beautifully painted too :)
I loved this hostel. Perfect location. Warm and friendly staff. Will be back again someday.
Good quiet location, and only a couple streets away from the chaos of the city center. Great free breakfast. Only con was the cleanliness of the bathroom.
Morning cleaning crew was rude. Even after bathrooms, etc. were cleaned, the bathrooms still seemed dirty. Shower faucets were terrible. The common room & bar downstairs was a nice place to hangout; but no one liked to mingle for conversation. I guess you get what you pay for.
Great location; saw the waterfall right outside our window. Laundry onsite, which was convenient. Internet and kitchen costs money to use... and no soap in the bathrooms...
Was a huge hostel and didn't see very many guests. Everything is overpriced. Would skip Montreux if I could do this part of my trip over again.
Had such a lovely time. Great location and atmosphere. Well maintained and clean. We loved the mascot puppy, Gabby!

Lovely get-away from the city. Wouldn't recommend it unless you have transportation.. but there are bikes, allowing you to see more of the countryside and vineyards. Great family who owns the place. Speaks little english. Overall, very nice.
10 bedroom dorm is a bit noisy because it is off a busy street. Buy earplugs! An awesome hostel with great staff and guests.
