    I didn't expect a kitchenette in the dorm, which was more like a cabin. Great to be able to store my food in our own fridge. Room was clean and comfortable with en-suite, and pillows were comfortable. Very close to town, and parking available

    Very Good

    Hostel is in a good location and has a really good kitchen. We didn’t find the atmosphere very welcoming. Rooms are okay but beds don’t have lights, plugs or curtains and large gaps between the bunks and the walls so not very comfortable.

    For the price that the YHA Wanaka is charging for a shared dormitory it could have been better. It might be time to modernise the rooms and facilities available if they continue to charge this much.
