    Best place to stay in Wanaka, booked for two nights, ended up staying for 6. Awesome atmosphere, facilities and million dollar views from the lounge. You definitely can't go wrong staying here.

    Really awesome place to stay. Large kitchen and heaps of fridge space. Awesome views overlooking the mountains and the lake through the lounge and dining area windows, especially in winter. Not directly in town, which means it's quite, but its only a 5 min walk to town so close enough to be a great location. Was upgraded to a room with an ensuite upon arrivals which was very much appreciated. Great atmosphere and very friendly staff. Would completely stay here again.

    We ended up being upgraded so we had a 3-bed room for ourselves, which was so nice! A very nice and cosy place, so we ended up extending our stay a day more.

    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. =(

    I've stayed at Wanaka Bakpaka for more than two months now. During the COVID-19 NZ restrictions, the hostel was a second home to me. The owners, Ian and Liz, have been incredible. The staff clean multiple times per day and are always kind and outgoing. I've stayed in multiple rooms here and loved them all. From the views in the common rooms over all Wanaka to the patio to all of the hiking and trails nearby, I could not recommend this place more.
