Stayed for a couple of nights. Booked a double room for the space, shared facilities with no issues. Comfortable lounge and kitchen area. Relaxed feel. Arrived late but key was in the front letterbox.

Stayed in a double room (shared facilities), nice well kept hostel a few minutes walk from the shops and the beautiful waterfront in Wanaka. Didn't use the kitchen but seemed clean and spacious enough.

Okay, it's a backpackers, but... I paid $75 for a 'private' room. What I got was a room with two beds. That was it. No plugs, no storage, shared bathroom, shared toilet (with a light timer?????) Oh! And the washing machine is right outside the room, as is the smoking area. So, unless you are a fan of second hand smoke, keep your windows closed. The service was desultory and my questions about activities were answered with a vague wave towards some brochures. Finally, there is a charge for wi-fi. To cap a 'memorable' experience the house next door was party central, which made sleep impossible. (Though to be fair, when I complained about the noise the partiers did invite me to join them.)

Only stayed one night, but it did the trick. Had a double private room.
Had to wait for a shower in the morning, but the bed was comfy and warm. Place was satisfactorily clean. You can easily walk to shops and cafes in town, very close.
Just so you know, they only except cash for payment at check in.
