    Wanaka Bakpaka was exceptionally good value, we got a private room for two at the same price as most places charged for a dorm. Spacious well equipped kitchen, lovely friendly staff, cheapest bike rental available, outdoors seating, clean. Would recommend wholly.

    Great hostel, comfy, beautiful views, everything you need. Only slight issue was the thin duvets for the time of year (spring). I was definitely cold at night! Otherwise lovely.

    Cute hostel on the hill with an amazing view fo the lake and the mountains from the lounge. Less than a 10-minute walk from the bus stop as well. Clean and quiet in the bedroom, but social in the lounge. Staf was very friendly, however possibly find activities to recommend for rainy days and don't just say that "there is not much to do when it rains" (which I was told when I arrived). Otherwise, a great hostel! I would definitely stay there again!
