I stayed here for 3 nights with my mum while we travelled New Zealand on the Magic bus and I have to say that the beds were very comfortable in comparison to other hostels iv stayed in. They were also very clean. The staff are very helpful and friendly. They recommended we do the walk up Mount John which isn't far then treat ourselves to a coffee at the top and then on the way down we go to the hot pools which were equally as good. I loved waking up in the morning and soaking in the spectacular views of the lake and the mountains. The hostel is 10 minutes walk from the small but cute village centre. Although I do highly recommend that you buy from new world or pak n save before heading to tekapo because the 4 square near by is pretty pricey. Overall I loved staying here and would definately go there again and recommend to friends too :)
