    The loveliest hostel I have stayed in for my whole two months of travel. Stunning views of the lake from a cozy common area, good kitchen and lovely outdoor area to sit and chill. There is a great chilled atmosphere yet found it super easy to meet others. Clean kitchen and comfy beds. Staff were so lovely and accommodating, let me use their computer to book flights in panic etc. I only wish I could have stayed longer.

    I really liked my stay. I could only stay one night, but I enjoyed it. I got to bbq my dinner and eat it on the outside benches with a spectacular view of the lake. The kitchens were spacious with plenty of everything you need. The property is well maintained and the staff was nice. I liked my en-suite room because it was clean enough, but to be honest I didn’t stay there long enough to have an opinion . I had to leave to a different hostel because they were fully booked for the next night. =(

    Wanaka Bakpaka was the perfect hostel/accommodation at a great location - amazing views close to town centre and opposite the lake. It has a relaxed atmosphere - a huge, well equipped, & clean kitchen with all facilities to cook and prepare meals - a relaxed lounge room with views over the lake, and very clean dorms and bathrooms. The staff were very easy going and friendly. I can highly recommend to stay here for any length of time.

    Wanaka Bakpaka has been one of my favorite hostels. It's an easy going space to stay short or long term. Best equipped kitchen of any hostel I have stayed in in New Zealand. Quite nights sleep and comfortable beds. It was great to rent a bike for the day. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. Great quiet place to stay in a fun town that is surrounded by amazing trails.

    Great hostel. A bit of a walk from the centre of Wanaka but that's a blessing in disguise. The beds are super comfy, the bathrooms and the kitchen decently sized and very well equipped. I'm so glad I found this spot for my few days in Wanaka. Would definitely stay again.

    Lovely place to stay with very spacious private rooms available! Facilities were good if a little old (kitchen hobs/ toilets etc) but apart from that I couldn't fault it. Great location too, just a stroll away from the town and very close to #thatwanakatree ...!

    This hostel had pretty good facilities, though the kitchen was crowded and a lot of the stoves were old and hard to use. I loved the location of this place, but I have to say, it was the rudest vibe I've ever encountered at a hostel. The staff member who we interacted with throughout our stay seemed hostile and constantly agitated, which made me and my friend quite uncomfortable. Comfortable beds and a decent place to spend the night, but not a very welcoming atmosphere.
