This hotel/backpackers is great value for money. We stayed in one of the rooms above the reception. Very clean and comfortable. We were not there for the snow but had a wonderful time in Ohakune. Would recommend to anyone on a budget.

After some deliberation I settled on LKNZ. This was a great choice. The room was clean and well stocked. It was conveniently located to the mountain and in easy walking distance to town (and great pizza at Mizzoni Woodfired Pizza!) I'd stay again in a heartbeat.

I enjoyed staying at this hostel. It is located very near city center and, more importantly, near the bus stop. I initially wanted to crash at YHA, but realized that it was some distance away and requires a phone call with a pick up. I spend total of 4 nights at LKNZ, first in a 6 bunk dorm and then... More

Have stayed here twice in the last 4months. Great grab one deals, ensuite rooms, no complaints about beds, rooms, hosts. Everything of a real good standard, especially for what we paid for our deals. Will be back again.
