Fantastic view from my room
Location is very good. helpful and friendly staff.
The location. Handy for town and right on the lake shore. Beautiful. Facilities were what you'd expect from a good yha
Your experience will rely on how considerate your fellow guests are in cleaning up after themselves in the kitchen and how quiet they are at night. Having said that apart from a few people on the kitchen not cleaning up their mess, we had no major problems.
views from our room, comfortable bed, clean kitchen with good facilities
Location was prime
We booked a shared room but next time we would not do this as other guests were coming and going and gave unsettled sleep.
Free wifi for YHA members, free parking, comfortable beds, facilities such as laundry available and very friendly, helpful staff
Location, location, location.
No hot water after 10:30? I took a shower in the cold water! It was freezing!!!!
clean tidy friendly good location
YHA Lake Tekapo was our first stop. you can't beat the location of this place. the milky blue lake is right in front of you!!! the staff is helpful, things are clean, and they've got a huge kitchen! i will stay at YHA Lake Tekapo again if i ever come back and visit.
bunk beds make more noises than you think.
The views and location
the 3 teenage girls giggling until 2 am in a 6 bed shared dorm.
I stayed at the lakefront lodge for the first two days and switched to YHA on the last. It is much closer to the town center and just a few minutes (three to five I think) walk to the carpark. You won't miss the lake or the stars because you are equally close to both, if not more. Everything is lovely I would say ;-)
Good location. Cooking is convenient. Free wifi is good and easy to get accessed.
The shower water pressure is too low. The wall is not sound proof and too noisy at night, couldn't have a quite night. The facility for two single beds room is too basic, considering the rates we paid.
Great location by the lake. We were drawn the garden and spent many meals just sprawled there. The staff were amazing, Helen, Richard and Billy who were ever so friendly and helpful. The building reflected the historical charm of the YHA community in Lake Tekapo, and the bathrooms and common areas were always kept clean, warm and inviting.
Just that the activities of other guests in the common areas can be heard in the rooms, and can be audible when its late at night.
Very nice atmosphere, great location, friendly stuff, free wi-fi
The Hostel like many YHA Hostels has stunning views from its public room windows. The Lounge was comfy. the fire at night was nice. the Hostel was in a nice location near the shops and cafes and hot pools.
The location is perfect. The kitchen is very clean. People are friendly.
The young staff at the reception (the male one) told me I should go to the shop to book the starseeing tour, but when I walked to the shop, it was closed..but never mind, Tekapo is so beautiful, worth the walk...
Scenic view from my room
They provide free wifi, very clean and tidy dom room. Big dining room and kitchen which is really nice. Very nice view from the common room. Also helpful staff.
It's a bit far away from the church.
Friendly staffs and members, thanks for warm hospitaly
Limit of car parking
Nice clean comfortable beds Lovely lounge
Slippery ladders for bunk beds
I love the location, just in front of the lake. Near to the hot spring, convenience store. Very helpful and friendly staff. The kitchen is very big space. The living room is the best, best view and cozy. The room is big enough to store our luggage, the mattress is good.
its great place
what's not to like everything was perfect than what we had not expected from a backpacker's accommodation
nothing came up
The location was amazing. Having the view of the lake out the kitchen and lounge room window was breathtaking. The staff were very friendly. We really enjoyed our hike up Mt John!
