The Te Anau YHA is a great hostel. Price is cheap and you get clean confortable rooms, free wifi and good communal bathrooms. Staff is friendly and like in all YHA will gladly help you book in advance for your next stay.

Basic but good rooms. Very nice kitchen and lots of character in the communal areas. Lovely private garden too. Very central to the rest of town so easy to get everywhere. The staff seem to be quite knowledgeable although I was disappointed with the place they recommended we eat. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed in a double room with ensuite bathroom through a Grab One deal for $99 (2 nights)! Can't complain at that price, decent location and Te Anau is the perfect place to explore Milford, Doubtful etc.. Room was clean and tidy but basic (expected) friendly staff.

All-around decent hostel. Good facilities, cute TV room with bean bag chairs and free movies and yoga mats. Beds are decently comfortable. I asked the guy at reception about a poster hanging in the hall advertising trivia at the hostel that night, and he looked at me like I was crazy and said he didn't know what I was talking... More

I would like to start that I would prefer to give a 3.5 star but cannot so I will round down. The hostel itself is cozy and they appeared to be environmentally friendly (reminders to use less water and electricity, always a plus!). I stayed two days in two different rooms. The first room was a triple. It was very... More

I stayed here over the weekend for the Routeburn Classic run. The internet booking was easy and I was impressed that I wasn't expected to pay until I checked in and canx/changes didn't incurr stupid charges. My dorm room was warm and clean, with basic facilities. The bathrooms, shared kitchen, dining/lounge area and DVD room were well-organised, clean, friendly, and... More

Good location & reception staff happy to give helpful advice on the many options for Milford Sound (I went with Juicy which were cheapest & excellent). Large, clean & well equipped kitchen & plenty of clean bathrooms but social area limited with 2 sofas next to reception though there is a separate TV lounge (free DVDs to watch). Would definitely...
