    Great location. Good price. Clean. Staff helpful. Kitchen meets basic needs — cooker, salt, fridge, microwave. Nothing to complain really. Would stay again if coming back to Tekapo.

    Great location, lovely staff, comfortable and home like feel. I loved that there were animals, picnic tables and a hammock to just hangout and relax. The beds were comfortable, extra blankets in the room plus a little heater, washrooms and showers were clean, plus it had hot water. Overall a great experience, I do suggest this hostel.
