Nice, but HOT

Easy location, nice hostel. Rooms were sooooo hot at night, made sleeping very difficult.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Really loved the staff and people we met. This hostel has such a good energy: welcoming, friendly staff. We stayed an extra night and would have loved to stay longer. The staff also recommended staying at Wanaka IHA (YHA) which was also fantastic. We hope to come back again soon.
