I am not a seasoned backpacker, so I'm rather cautious when sating @ backpackers.. However this one was great! The staff were really friendly and helpful - great big kitchen and cosy dining and lounge. The rooms are big and clean. We stayed in the ensuite and moved to a double. The double room was actually better than the ensuite! The room was bigger, airier and even though you had to share the toilet and shower (have done before) I would recommend the double over the ensuite. All in all they made our stay cosy comfy and relaxing. Oh yeah, being on the beautiful Lake Wanaka doesn't hurt either. Would def recommend.
