    My stay at Flying Kiwi was great. The security was great, the movie selection was vast. The showers were awesome, but the beds are very squeaky. Very friendly staff. Would stay again!

    Very clean, spacious rooms, hire bikes are really good quality. Owners are really lovely and helpful. They genuinely care about your trip and make sure you get to do the activities you want to. Fresh herbs in the garden are a real bonus if you like to cook. Would recommend and definitely stay again.

    Friendly/informative staff, good location, and good facilities. If I had to find something to improve upon, Id say the cots were a little bit uncomfortable, but nothing that prevents a good night’s sleep.

    This place is so great. The staff are so friendly and helpful and make this place feel so homely. Cosy comfy beds in nice rooms, really well stocked kitchen, lovely communal area, and a good location - short walk to town and the lake. We also hired bikes from the hostel which was fun and the staff helped us out with a route. Great communal atmosphere.

    This hostel was great in location, great staff, the kitchen amenities were good and the area in the back with a hammock and picnic tables was great. The only thing I would say is the hostel was cold, however in the kitchen they had a heating lamp which was good, and I mentioned to a staff member that I was cold so she grabbed me a blanket and turned on the heater for my room. Overall was a great hostel! :)

    Nice enough place, a little out of the centre of Wanaka. Owner is lovely. Only had two other people in the dorm when I stayed, so it wasn’t the most social place I’ve stayed. Kitchen is really good, as were the showers. Beds okay. It is currently being renovated, so I’m sure it will improve over time!

    A very basic hostel. Nothing fancy. Adequate, but not amazing.
