Only downside was the room smelt of damp, apart from that nice beds, good kitchen and comfortable lounge area, OK toilets and showers. Nice cafe on site as well 2 hot tubs. Also on site laundry, which was useful. We used this hostel as a base for the Tongaririo Alpine Crossing, with a shuttle bus taking us to the start of thee track and picking us back up at the end of the trek, the hot tubs were great after the trek! The hostel is however a bit of a walk from the train station if you have bags like we did - arriving and departing on the Northern Explorer train.

A group of us were here for ten weeks. Lovely place with great facilities and amazing staff, especially the house keeping. Great lounge area to relax in and just a half an hour bus from Turoa ski field. Great food in the cafe and just an all round nice experience.

The accommodation was great, clean, comfortable and in a great location. My stay was sadly let down by the female owner (or who i thought was the owner) She was very rude and made me feel very un welcome and uncomfortable. This sadly did bring down the quality of my stay.

Arrived late Friday night was treated with a very nice smile and a young gentleman who was very knowledgeable about the surrounding area. The rooms and general area were very clean.
The cafè was a very nice experience also with food made promptly and to a very high standard, perfect before heading up the hill
would 100% tell people to stay whether they are a solo traveller or a family.

Had an awesome stay at LKNZ Lodge over the weekend. Staff were super friendly, facilities were great. Loved the homely lounge room. Super clean, and super comfy bed.
Had a cute breakfast at the cafe attached!
