    Can’t really fault this Hostel at all. Superb facilities! Loved the sauna in the evening and the free popcorn! Lots of space to cook and relax. The beds even have two pillows! Great security and great staff!

    We were greeting by a very friendly and welcoming front desk person. Our room was basic but adequate with extra blankets and heater if needed but no extra pillows. The linen was fresh and white. especially the towels. The shared shower and toilet rooms were spotlessly clean. The kitchen dining area large, well equipped and clean and pleasant low volume music played through a high speaker. Excellent maps and information available. Good value.

    There are not a lot of accommodation options in Arthur's Pass, but this hostel was just what I needed as a rest stop before heading to Christchurch the next day. The kitchen was massive and bunk beds were fine. Loved the common room upstairs with comfy couches!

    It was a lovely stay in the mountains and I enjoyed the hiking around the area. Mountain House provided a very comfortable stay at an inexpensive price and ample cooking space for all guests. Toilets and showers were a bit tight but very workable. I would definitely stay here again the next time I visit Arthur's Pass.

    Good Hostel overall. We wanted to spend time in the common room after check out and basically got kicked out. It would have been fine if it was written somewhere that the facilities couldn't be used after checkout...

    Great staff, but the front desk closes early. The kitchen at this hostel is amazing; one of the best I've seen in a hostel anywhere. Though, you should absolutely bring food with you from another town. I didn't see a grocery in the area and the cafe/corner-store was closed early. The only restaurant/bar open after 6pm charges an insane amount to eat. The rooms were spacious, but only having one power point in the room for 8 beds was unfortunate.

    We went when there was a huge storm so didnt get to fully appreciate Aurthers Pass so left early. The hostel had very little to do when it rained, no TV and common rooms were cold. However, the wifi was pretty good...

    The hostel was okay. There are lots of rules about when you can and can't be there. The kitchen was nice. There is parking available. Easy access to trails, and the cafes are close. No lockers and limited outlets.
