Amazing location - very near the church of the good Shepard and the beautiful lake.

Service was great, Richard is very helpful!!! Loved him!

Common room was nice and tidy - had a real log fire which we loved as it was raining when we stayed.

Rooms were tiny and very crammed! Only bad point! Too many beds in a room and with no window to the outdoors!

Lovely place though but it's tiny therefore booking is needed in advance.

Cheap hostel which facing stunning view. Kitchen is good enough for me, quite a comfortable dining room and living room too. The share toilets and bathroom is clean too.
Is really feel 'wow' when sitting outside during night because of the sky full of shiny stars and during day time for the lake view.
But the small room for 5 with 2 bunk beds and a single bed just not for me who are not a real backpacker. As I slept upper bed and when room-mate turn on the heater is just too hot for me cause the heater closely attached.

Lovely place to stay and the facilites are good. If have more shower rooms would be better. Just when the weather is bad you can see nothing on the sky, will visit again in a good weather condition. Like the piano in the common room and the staff generally helpful.

We stayed in an apartment opposite the hostel - upstairs with a lovely view of the lake. The apartment is a little old and tired but nevertheless comfortable with all amenities. A lovely big window to view the world - suitable to 2 couples although one lot had to sleep in bunk beds. It is an easy walk to town along the lake.

Room Tip: upstairs apartment gives a good view of the lake - choose up rather than down - we didn't realise there was a choice but got lucky.

Stayed overnight at YHA Tekapo in the double private room. If you are looking for a budget stay where you can have a view and good kitchen, this place is recommended. The place is spacious and clean and quite near to the Tekapo Hot Springs.

The double room I stayed was outside and you might get a little bit cold when you need to walk to the kitchen or the living room and might be a bit dark at night. Shared bathroom is clean.
