One of the better hostels, I had in New Zealand. Nice staff, nice clean room, with really spacious wooden bunk beds, which don't sqeek. I had a really good sleep. Bathroom was very clean. 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

It's no secret that I am a fan of YHA. I haven't been disappointed so far and Te Anau YHA was no different. Ok, the carpet was a bit ratty but hey, I was paying a bargain basement price. The staff were friendly and helpful and the bathrooms were spic. Best of all, I could leave half my stuff behind... More

The four beds room that we booked did not have working lights, So they moved us into the main building and offered us two rooms that has two beds.... More

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
