I stayed with a friend at that yha for one night in a twin. The room was very small with two bunk beds. Unfortunately, the beds were already quite worn and uncomfortable. It was fairly cold outside and there's only this strange heater on the wall which doesn't help much - it was almost as cold inside as outside. The... More

We stayed one night in YHA hostel in lake Te Anau and loved every minute of it. The checkin was quite smooth and the two guys in the reception were quite helpful guiding us plan our activities. We booked a double room with attached bathroom. The room was a bit small and there was just enough place to walk around.... More

Very nice hotel for backpackers, with big backyard and big kitchen. Very easy to find in main street of TE ANAU, but not close enough to the shop and lake. (maybe 10mins by walk.) Room is not very big , but enough for two. also very clean and quiet. the hotel has a small car park, which can park 10-12... More

The kitchen is not suited for the number of people staying - there was only one oven which on our night there was being used by someone to slow-cook their food for several hours. Also, in order to get to our 6-bed dorm room we had to walk a couple of meters from the main building which was not that... More

This hostel is quiet and has a great location relative to restaurants, souvenir shops, the bust stop, etc. It is also close to a grocery store and has a HUGE kitchen! The staff there were really friendly and helpful.

Helpful friendly staff, good rooms, great kitchen, massive hostel but still feels fairly cosy. WARM in winter - a big plus. Comfortable and clean. Good showers but if it was full there could be a wait.

Perfectly situated, great value, very clean, super helpful, big well equipped kitchen perfect for cooking a massive post tramp/hike feast while sharing your experiences with other intrepid adventurers! They even went to the trouble of posting my Scarpa hiking boots I left there back to Australia for me which I never dreamt they would have time to do. How generous!... More

We stayed in a share house next to the main hostel. Great value and very clean. We had our own room and just shared the main living area, kitchen and bathroom with another two people. Great place to stay!

I stayed here in Te Anau as it's the best base to do a day-trip to Milford Sound. I also managed to fit in the glow worm caves close to town on the same day. This YHA is perfectly situated in a quiet street close to the centre of the village and the lakefront. All of the communal areas and... More
