Stayed here prior to setting off on the Travers-Sabine circuit with a party of 6 and also stayed on our return. Excellent spacious motel unit and friendly staff. At the back of the motel there is a lovely bush walk next to a river down to the lake (and water taxi). Also parking for your vehicle at the motel while... More

Easily my favourite hostel in NZ. It’s super clean. Fairly quiet - apart from the big heavy doors that like to overpower you and slam shut. It’s the sort of place where solo travellers (especially trampers) can meet one another. The lounge room is the perfect spot to enjoy a book in front of the fire. There is an additional... More

This place is super comfi, and the owner is very nice. I arrived late with no booking, while the hostel was closed, but the owner agreed to let me in and gave me a room for the night. The common room is great, and the pictures on the wall make you want to go hike right away. I strongly advise... More

The staff are very friendly and helpful. As I was going to be the only backpacker there on a cold wet night, they put me into one of the cottages. This was great - a very warm and comfortable place to stay. I have previously stayed in the Backpackers Lodge and it was equally comfortable with a spacious well-equipped kitchen.

We stayed 2 nights in the backpackers lodge. Room was comfortable, with bedding and towels supplied. Kitchen was large and very well equipped and all very clean. The owners were very helpful and knowledgable about walks in the area - we appreciated the tip to spend a night at Blue Lake Hut. We made use of the lockers and 'trampers... More

Nothing fancy but an excellent kitchen, well stocked. Clean and comfortable group setting bunk beds. Friendly staff. It was the perfect spot for the four of us to stay. Reasonable prices. We enjoyed our stay.

I stayed with my family in a dorm room in the backpackers lodge. We are a family of five and had a six bed dorm room to ourselves. The lodge was clean and comfortable. The toilets and showers were clean and there was plenty of hot water. The communal kitchen was large and well-equipped. Next to the kitchen was a... More

Spent one night recently, with my partner in one of the Log Cabin style Studios. We were very impressed with comfort, cleanliness, the rates, and the quiet. Met Richard the owner, very friendly, he had no hesitation, in showing me around some of the other larger units available. ( for future reference!) There is also a good backpackers' facility...Dorms, a... More

Clean, accessible, relaxed. Clean and large kitchen. Good for stopover. When we stopped over there was only another room booked, so we had the whole place to ourselves pretty much. Lake is beautiful, but not a lot of food options in area, bear that in mind when traveling here. Two restaurants. Do recommend a visit though, there are lots of... More
