I was quite apprehensive about staying at a hostel since we are not college kids any more! In fact we had a one and half year old with us and I was worried about noise and other issues. But I want to reassure all families who are trying to do Wanaka on a budget, this is the place to stay! The kitchens were very nice and everyone quite good about keeping everything clean and we got really lucky with our room. Our windows faced Lake Wanaka, it was fantastic waking up to the view. The YHA is a block from the lakefront, there is a nice park just in front of it. And Wanaka is wonderful to relax and unwind from the frantic traveling you will do trying to cover New Zealand in one trip!
