6.3.13 Stayed in double room type chalet at rear of main building which shared bathroom and small kitchen with 2nd doube room. It had table & chairs and lounge chairs to relax in and you could park off road nearby. Kitchen not big enough to do full evening meal but you could also use main kitchen facilities. It had a microwave as well. Good if you wanted a cup of tea during the period main kitchen closed. Very good allround hostel with great location and views over the lake. Shops within 5 mins walking and good local supermarket. Staff very helpful and I would say that this one of the best YHA i stayed in whilst travelling around South Island. No complaints.
