We just left this hostel after 3 nights in a double room. The hostel was easy to find and the manager Toby at check in was really helpful and gave us advice on what to do in Wanaka, and where the good restaurants were. He also gave us advice on the best places to see as we rented a car for a day.
The room was very clean and had a heater. There was no noise at night. The bathrooms and kitchen were also very clean. The kitchen was fully equipped and had plenty of storage space.
There was a spa pool and a nice area outside to relax. They had laundry facilities as well, and a clothes line outside. The kitchen has a dining area with a fire that is perfect to relax in.
The location is perfect, a 2 minute walk from the supermarket and a 5 minute walk to the lakefront.
We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to anybody.
