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!
First, I made a book in the booking website. When I showed YHA member card for payment, the staff didn't gave me discount. Others YHA had discount.
perfect for bag-packers and one doesn't drive, it's at a budget price and convenient location, also can enjoy discount for booking safaris airbus
since heater is on, the smell of food got trapped inside the room, felt a little bit uncomfortable with that, and people will be playing games and chatting outside the dining area, my room is just right next to it, got a bit noisy in that room
Very nice and clean
Insuffieecient heating. Expensive as YHA's go and no free tea or coffee.
Location View Staff Fireplace Cleanliness Atmosphere
Great view of the lake. Value for money with such lake view. Staff is friendly and helpful.
Great location by the lake. Value for money when staying at Lake Tekapo.
Small number of showers/toilets for number of guests staying.
Great location close to the lake and bus stop
Location of showers and toilets weren't shown or easy signed to find. Had to use public toilet in town.
communal area has good decor
I couldn't book a room for our three, so we has to share room with anyone else
The piano. The Scottish woman (staff). Location.
Two employees , man is very quick and clear, girl is cute and enthusiastic, can hear trip stories from different young people, wish I can living there longer The living hall is warm and cozy with close lake view, and setting fire is quite a fun Loving the fantasic stary sky and great view on Mt.John, and the kohan restruant Biking and walking can help you enjoy this town deep in smooth pace if you are not rushing
If bunker bed can have curtain and more storage space(like per-bed shelf), it will be perfect
Good location. Staffs are friendly.
room is too small!
