    Andy and Anna.wre super helpful with providing recommendations around the area and fitted me in when I wanted to stay an additional night last minute. They have a few longer term stay guests and feels like a real family environment with a great location for getting around town, would highly recommend staying here.

    The hospitality of the owners and staff is simply amazing! Super helpful when it's about sharing tips for what to do around Wanaka and nice to have a chat with while sipping some tea or eating pop corns. The hostel is small and cozy, which makes it easy to meet people to chill with after a long hiking day. Totally recommend!

    Cosy, nice hostel in a quiet area. Staff were very helpful and I met some nice people there- they had a tv with loads of films on it to watch, so we could have movie night. Beds a bit creaky but other than that it was fine! Wanaka is a great place too, and the hostel has plenty of suggestions for what to do.
