Highly efficient and friendly staff who ensure the hostel ticks over with clockwork precision. The vicinity of Te Anau provides a relaxing environment. Thoroughly enjoyed my five days stopover. Thank you, Jack Gray, Scotland.

YHA Te Anau Hostel is popular and so close to town, travel offices by the lake, walking distance to DOC office. Bus drop off and pick up at door. Routeburn, Kepler, Milford Tracks or other nearby walks, I choose to stay here. Free drying room, secure luggage storage at low cost. Kitchen & common room can be full during peak... More

I was in an en-suite double room and was pleasantly surprised to find the room had a couch, which was awesome on the first evening when I was too tired to want to socialise - I could curl up with a book in peace and quiet. Kitchen area was a little bit grubby but otherwise, absolutely no complaints. Great for... More

As far as hostels goes this is a very good one. We stayed for 3 days and saw how popular this place was. There was plenty of common area space and the whole area was kept spotlessly clean. Close to the centre of town was a bonus.

Poor wifi, keeps on disconnecting and not in range in room. Most of the staff members were really helpful, one of them though did not feel like doing her job well. Kitchen is ok, but not enough tables. Beds and bathroom were good. Close to supermarket and Real journeys office.

we were really happy with our overall stay here, we had a private double room which was a reasonable size (wouldn't want it to be any smaller though). kitchen and lounge room fantastic, lots of areas to chill out and find your own little corner. really impressed with the tv room, as we were here for 3 nights we were...

I have stopped at this hostel previously and it was great however on this trip stopped at this hostel on two separate occasions for the night. The first night I stopped in a double ensuite room and the room itself was clean and tidy with a lounge in it and a heater which was good as the night was a... More

Facility itself was very nice. Cleanliness of kitchen questionable with mouse droppings in the fridge and cooking area dirty. Washrooms were very clean and so was the room. Reception service upon check in was slow. Great place to store our gear when we went on our multiday hike and a great place to dry our clothes when we returned.

Room 21, single with shared bath., clean and convenient to the small downtown. large common room and nice kitchen. nothing special about the place. it was a place to sleep, so it did the job. there is not many places to choose from in this town.

Every YHA hostel we stayed in throughout New Zealand the service was excellent. However I felt a bit let down here. At one point I went to the reception and there were two girls on duty. However, they were both messing around on their mobile phones and could not be bothered to deal with my query. They knew I was... More

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback. I am disappointed that you have had this experience with us, it is certainly not in line with our hostel or the YHANZ visions and values. I have discussed the matter with my staff and can assure you that behaviour like this will not happen again. I am glad you... More
