Property Description

Our wonderful small town of Te Anau is the gateway to some of New Zealand’s most outstanding outdoor experiences, and Te Anau Lakefront Backpackers is the perfect place to explore it all from.

Located on the lakefront and just five-minutes’ walk from the shops, you can take in the views, cook outside or in, and kick back in our gardens to the sounds of native birds.

We also have everything you need to get set for the great outdoors or recover after an epic day in the elements, including secure storage, laundry, comfy beds, free Wifi, movie room and a travel desk manned by our friendly, helpful staff who love to explore just as much as you.

Reception is open daily until 8PM, and late check-in can be arranged if you contact us beforehand.

Really nice hostel. Stayed in a 4 bed dorm with my friends. I really enjoyed my stay and will definitely return. Clean, bright, well maintained, good staff, and a great location to sleep at after doing Milford Sound and Te Anau is a great little town for a stop over. The 4 bed mixed dorm was great with counterspace and and an extra sink. I would have enjoyed the stay even with people I didn't know in the dorm, except the beds were not private at all.
