    Staying at Wanaka Bakpaka was a wonderful experience. We were put in a private 3 bed room for ourselves with an ensuite and the room was clean and perfect. The hostel itself is beautiful, has character, and is clean and well maintained. It is about a 10 minute walk from downtown and has a beautiful lakeside view. The kitchen is spacious and clean with tons of room for cooking, and the dining room is cozy.

    Very Good

    Nice location about a 10 minute walk out of the centre of town, overlooking the lake from outside. Good sized kitchen and living/dining area, both seemed pretty clean, and we're nice to use. Sturdy beds. Atmosphere felt a little weird, and not the friendliest, maybe as lots of long termers staying there. 4 lockers in the room to 6 beds seemed odd. Bathrooms were not the cleanest, and the nice ones were not working. Thin mattresses. Rooms and bathrooms seemed in need of a thorough deep clean.
