I booked a double room en suite and it has a small couch :-) The... More

Very friendly staff, large kitchen and nice outdoor area from the main lounge facility. Couches a bit worn but it's not too bad, private rooms are small, little space for bags if you're with someone, however they just renovated their storage room which is available to all during reception hours. Free wifi and about a five minute walk to centre... More

While I was on the Kepler Track, I befriended a fellow tramper (hiker) who mentioned how pleasant his stay had been at this particular hostel (and how fast the internet was); so, because I wasn't particularly fond of the previous place I stayed, I decided to give it a try. I could not be more pleased! Whatever request or question... More

As is typical with YHA hostel, this one was extremely friendly and welcoming. The staff are very helpful and accommodating and we loved how clean and well-stocked the facilities are. Fantastic hot showers, plenty of lounge space, a cosy fire and awesome walking nearby within Fjordland. All of this AND it is a quiet and peaceful hostel at night. What... More

-- ROOM TYPE TAKEN -- Private Double -- STAY TYPE / REASON -- A 30-year old couple, road tripping New Zealand on a budget. We usually stay in private rooms and cook for ourselves. Most places we stay, we usually need to charge a couple of laptops and a number of camera batteries meaning we have a higher than average... More

The Kitchen Area is nice as well, allthough it was dripping water in because of the rain the last days. free fast internet, which is really... More

We are new to Hostelling so bear this in mind, room was good kitchen busy was OK for us for doing our breakfast. We find it tedious trying to find things and some people are untidy. but we liked it here there was outside seating to sit under cover from the usual rain:] Clean bedding and towels

Had an enjoyable 3 day stay here amidst the wintry conditions, great for accessing the fjords by car or tour. The place can look overcrowded at mealtimes when almost full, kitchen space can be at a premium , but who cares it is YHA not your own apartment. The staff were helpful and cheerful , which makes for a good... More
