    Amazing little hostel, located conveniently in the town center of perfectly laidback Wanaka! The place has all you could need, in a homely package. It works best if you're up for some interaction with the other guests and the staff, which was the friendliest I've come across in New Zealand. The best base to start exploring the town, hike Roys Peak, go Kayaking or just hang back. Loved the night where we were playing music in the living room and ended up at the open mic night in the Irish pub.

    Mountain View Backpackers was the perfect place to stay. Clean, comfortable rooms, friendly staff, a social but no party atmosphere, large kitchen and lovely outdoor space all within walking distance to town but still with plenty of parking. Would definitely stay again!!

    Decent space in bedrooms, big garden to chill out. Really close to town, showers were clean, but kitchen and indoor chill out space is a bit small but did the job

    -A lot of people seemed to be living in the hostel -Toilet paper was empty in one bathroom for a whole day -Wifi isn’t unlimited -Top bunk is a serious hazard due to a depression in the ceiling which makes it virtually impossible not to hit your head

    We stayed just for one night and it was okay, not awesome but okay. The parking lot is TINY and a little difficult to drive in but I found a spot every time. People are friendly and chill. Huge garden, separating the dorms from the main house,so if it rains (like the day we were there) you're gonna get wet. The dorm was CRAMPED and very hot. Very little lockers and not enough power outlets. Pricey washing machines but they worked just fine. Walking distance from all in Wanaka which is not much.

    The kitchen was a little cramped for so many guests but there was a nice large eating/lounge area. I stayed in the separate outside building dorm which was nice but really cold at night! A 3 min walk from the Main Street and lakefront. Plenty of parking on the road outside.
