Check in was quick and easy, they also answered all my questions about hiking in the area. Wifi is free and works great. I stayed in an 8 bed female room. It... More

After several decades out of the youth hostelling scene I decided to take the plunge with YHA Te Anau to show my growing family how wonderful it can be to stay in a hostel.

This is a pretty good yha with spacious rooms, nice warm showers and a well-equipped kitchen. The lounge area is spacious and comfortable with free wifi. I stayed here for two nights in January and the staff were pretty helpful. If I ever return to Te Anau, I would stay here again.

My husband and I stayed for one night in room 4 and then following an overnight cruise on a Doubtful Sound, another two nights this time in room 5. Both rooms were double en suite but room 4 is much smaller so it was good to have the bigger room for the longer stay. So the first flaw was that... More
