Hard to find Jul 19, 2014
I stayed at this hostel for 2 nights. When I arrived in the small town of Lake Tekapo I had no idea where the hostel was. I walked around for ages and couldn't see any signs and I had no phone service there either. Eventually I started walking along this road around the lake and eventually came to the hostel. I was carrying a heavy pack all this time and was pretty exhausted by the time I made it inside, but the place made up for it.

The hostel is right on the lake shore and has beautiful views from the communal areas. The hostel is a bit out of town so it was quiet and surrounded by pine forest. The dorm room I stayed in had 6 beds, but there was only myself and one other person staying in the room, total luxury for a hostel! There was a log fire in the lounge and plenty of travel info and photos in albums for guests to check out. Not far from the hostel is an outdoor hot pools and leisure centre. Going here at night and staring at the stars from the pools was amazing.

The only negative from my stay here was then having to carry my bag all the way back into town when I left.

Great hostel for backpacker with event better view Apr 10, 2011
It's almost a year ago since I was there, but memories are still so fresh :)

This backpackers Lodge is one of the best hostels where I stayed on NZ. Location is excellent - first rove at the lake. Sights are really nice, it's a great starting point if you would like to do some hiking around the hills & lake or any other sport activities.

In case that you would just like to relax the whole day and do nothing special, you can easily spend the whole day in the hostel and around Garden upfront the hostel is the great place to do nothing. There is also a big dining & living room with a TV, kitchen is spacy and clean.

Sometimes it can be to crowded since the whole buses of tourists comes, otherwise, if you like the nature this is really a good option where you can stay.
