“Sweet little hostel.”
Reviewed August 25, 2011

We only stopped in Wanaka for one night, but I am glad we chose this backpackers to spend our only night. We had not made a reservation but we were accommodated for immediately when we arrived by the English owner.
The owner gave us very good tips on the area and how to see the best of Wanaka in the short time we had.
We drove to Wanaka and were able to park the car on the driveway which was good.
The communal area is homely, with good tv and free dvds to watch.
Finally, the bedrooms were comfortable and we were provided with a duvet as opposed to just a sheets which was very much appreciated!
Overall, it was excellent value for money at $25 each (four bed dorm).

As far as backpackers go, as a mature solo traveller, i look for smaller hostels which are close to town but not IN town. Ideally my perfect hostel doesnt have bunkbeds, because Murphy's Law dictates that if it has bunk beds, mine will have to be at the top!
Of course cleanliness if important, and affordable laundry facilities too. Access to the internet is also a bonus. This backpacker met all the necessary requirements, except for the bunkbeds, sigh, top bunk again. What I DID like about this hostel is that they have actually given sufficient consideration to storage! so i really liked that about the dorm. Extremely friendly service, hostel amazingly kept clean despite the time of year (new years eve!), tv in the lounge room was a nice bonus, not all hostels have them, so it was quite a treat to watch Lord of The Rings 1 and 2 with a bunch of other travellers who i suspect were trying to see if they recognised any of the scenery. Good location to town ie 5 min walk. Parking is easy (outside on the road without any problems). A good hostel.

Looking back at my travels this has to be one of the best we stayed in, but didn't realise it at the time. The room was clean, comfortable, the communal area had a tv with a wealth of DVDs to watch and good cooking facilities. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Good stuff.
