Genuinely close knit family run business, in the centre of Wanaka, New Zealand.
Rooms are clean and well kept. Kitchen is big enough for everyone to use, though its always best to avoid peak backpackers pasta cooking hours! (5-7pm)
Hot tub in the back is icing on the cake, but that isn´t what makes this hostel.
It´s run by Donna and Peter, wonderful people who made time for myself and my travel partner in times of need. Had it been a big corporate hostel like Base or even some YHA´s, we would most certainly have had a terrible time in Wanaka. But the staff gave us service over and above our expectations, especially when my friend was admitted to hospital.
If its a friendly homely place you need then go to Matterhorn south guest house.
