Travelling as a solo senior I was very impressed with the YHA experience in New Zealand. This hostel, (my first hostel experience in NZ) is in a great location, easy to walk from the public bus and to town for groceries. Loved the clean and friendly kitchen with lots of supplies including a stack of clean tea towels and great...

We stayed for one night in mid May in a double ensuite room. It was clean, warm and comfortable with a spacious bathroom. Good kitchen to make your own meals in and prepare a picnic lunch for your days out. Easy walk to cafes and supermarket and a short drive to a great choice of day walks in the nearby...

Hi there, We're glad our staff managed to find a suitable room for you - they're always happy to help! We recommend booking quite far in advance as some of our rooms are quite popular and the ensuites are a favourite for weary trampers looking for a little more privacy. It's great to hear the weather came out for your...

We went there in March 2017 for two nights. It was a very good stay: spacious room with spacious bathroom. Very clean kitchen and cool garden to chill in if it's good weather of course :). And there is a barbecue!! Also possibility to do laundry (only cold water...).

A friend and I stayed for two nights in Te Anau and had a great stay at the YHA hostel. The rooms were clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. The wifi did not work in the rooms which was frustrating. The location is also great and I would recommend staying there.

Good room for the price. Huge kitchen with all that you need. Great DVD collection which you can rent for free and watch in the TV room. Lots of space for a busy hostel. Nice atmosphere. Warm, friendly staff. The walls are a bit thin so bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper. Noise did quite down after 11pm....

Hi David, You're welcome and thanks for choosing to stay with us. We're pleased to hear your feedback so we appreciate you leaving your review. We find that it often quietens down around the hostel from about 10pm onwards and if guests do require earplugs, they can get them from the reception desk. We hope you do manage to stay...

We stopped in a night before a Milford Sound drive the following day. Easy check in, good facilities. Only thing was hearing people walking down the hallways at different times of the night. But would still stay here again.

Hi Ben, we'd love for you to stay again - we do have quieter areas of the hostel and we're happy to put guests there if we can. Staying the night here in Te Anau is a great way to reduce the drive time to Milford Sound. You can also then join the earlier cruises which are cheaper and avoid...

Hi Pavni, Thank you for taking the time to review our hostel, we're delighted with your positive feedback! We agree that Te Anau is a good place to stop over but we recommend guests book ahead as budget accommodation is in short supply in the busy periods. Kind Regards, Joshua Keeble, Assistant Manager

I stayed for 2 nights in April in a single room. Haven't stayed in a hostel for many years, but was pleasantly surprised :-) Very clean room and bathroom. Friendly staff. Comfortable. I could have stayed in a cheap motel for a little bit more, but as a single traveller this is more fun and friendly. Would stay here again.
