    Great hostel, staff are super helpful, there is a good social vibe and it was good they appreciated those getting up early in the morning so outside was closed after 10 and the lounge area could not be heard from the rooms. Would definitely stay again, felt quite homely :)

    Thanks for everything! I don't leave reviews often but these guys definitely deserve one. The staff and owners are the best. Very friendly and always happy to help. They will go out of their way to help you whether it's needing to leave storage behind, asking about things to do, etc. The hostel itself is in a great location. Walking distance to just about anywhere in Wanaka and very close to the famous Paradiso Cinema. Great place for laying low- doesn't get too loud at night. Would go back 100%

    The staffs were really really nice , shows you the hostel and recommend you the places to go. The bathrooms were quite nice but I would prefer separate bathrooms for men and women. Common areas are quite well maintained but the kitchen could be cleaner.

    One of many spots in town, which are a dime a dozen. Facilities are pretty standard. Kitchen is a decent size, and there is a living room + outside areas with picnic tables & hammocks. Owner is friendly. Pretty forgettable place. Value is what you'd expect. You basically pay $25 a night to sleep on a $50 mattress (where you can feel the springs) in an $80 bunk bed that creeks every time you move.

    Not a lot of security, room open all the time. People noisy at night and early in the morning. Super hot in the room. Staff were OK until you were checked in. After I checked out I asked if I can hang out couple of hours as my laundry was still wet and had nowhere to eat my lunch. I heard its not an option and answer, it's not my problem multiple times. Rude and insulting. I wouldn't recommend this place. Staffs need to learn a lot about customer service.
