    A gorgeous hostel in a beautiful location. No complaints really. It is quite remote but very handy that it’s attached to the hotel and pub opposite.

    Quiet small and peaceful. Generous staff upgraded my room because they weren’t busy. Only saw three others around. I was looking for a peaceful uninterrupted stay and that’s exactly what I got. Warm clean rooms. Wasn’t expecting much from the outdoor bathrooms but was pleasantly surprised by the hottest most powerful shower I had on my trip. Will be back for sure. Thank you!

    Cute hostel in a beautiful spot! Lots of locals around. The bathrooms are outside and a little chilly, I chose not to shower on my one night stay. Brrrr.

    You get your money's worth and no more. Was a lovely setting but the beds were incredibly uncomfortable and the toilets and showers, being outside, were freezing and in need of some TLC! The Restaurant area and staff, however, were lovely!

    You get what you pay for, really. The showers are outside and therefore very cold in the morning; I ended up skipping it. The bed wasn’t very comfortable’s a bed, I guess? The location is neat (right by the lake) and the staff members are all super nice and helpful, but the room itself isn’t that stellar.

    Nothing against the hostel. It did the job for a short stay within the Wanaka area. Nice staff but the hostel itself was a bucket. Stunk like ass too I think cause of the peoples stinky cooking.

    4 Bett Zimmer war relativ sauber, aber viel zu klein. Waschanlagen glichen der einer Autobahnraststätte (gefühlt nie geputzt)! Die Küche war sehr dreckig, überall tote Motten und Fliegen im Essbereich. Und das WLAN war von Anfang an eigentlich nie verfügbar!!

    So many BED BUGS !!!! THE WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE! I do not suggest anyone stay here EVER!!! There was huge amounts of bed bugs and I have bites allllll over my body. When we informed the staff they acted surprised about the situation.... like how could they have been that shocked... they were everywhere!! They striped and sprayed and I’m sure will put someone in that room right after! It did not seem like they knew how to properly get rid of bed bugs or understand the damaged they cause!
