    Really enjoyed our stay at the Te Anau hostel, our favourite out of all the ones we've been to in NZ. We stayed in one of the private cabins where we had our only separate bathroom and kitchen amenities which was really nice and clean. We were welcomed by Ben, who was super friendly and wholesome and definetley made us feel comfortable and welcome!! Still yet to find his cat Sharon, but maybe next time!!

    A nice, quiet place to acces the beautiful nature in the area. Kitchen facilites are good. Public areas are a little crowded. Also, I was in a dorm room and had to go outside and unlock another building to get to the bathroom.

    Really awesome place. The YHA in queenstown is definitely better, but this was a nice place for the night. No bar, so alcohol is allowed. Kitchen is really nice. Staff is great.
