Around the hostel
Join the HI Community
At HI, we want everybody to be able to enjoy the real hostelling experience: more than a place to stay, this is about opening minds, meeting new people, cultural immersion and getting travellers involved in our global activities. We love travelling as much as you do, so we have high hostel standards wherever we expand on the planet, but more than where you rest your head, this is about taking something unforgettable away with you – wherever you come from, or are going next.

Being a HI member means you get 10% discount on your overnight bookings - but we're so much more than a bed: we offer HI members a whole range of great deals and offers through our partnerships worldwide. From museums and tours, to adventure activities and national parks, enjoy the benefits of the real hostelling experience.
Walking in Te Anau
Te Anau will satisfy the keenest walker–that particular breed who dreams of taking their walking boots on multi-day backcountry adventures. Sound like you? Te Anau is the ideal pre and post walk stop for three of the celebrities of New Zealand’s Great Walks: the Kepler, Routeburn and Milford Tracks. The Kepler Track (3-4 days) begins along the beech-forested shores of lakes Te Anau and Manapouri and traverses above the bushline with views of the Kepler Mountains, rivers, lakes and valleys. The Routeburn Track (2 - 4 day) has some of the most diverse scenery weaving through alpine flora and lakes, waterfalls, rivers and panoramic views. The Milford Track (4 day) follows an historic Māori route through forest and ice-carved valleys, a mountain pass, rivers and waterfalls from Lake Te Anau to Milford Sound. Once back in Te Anau, feast on local fare of venison, lobster and seafood and then relax at YHA Te Anau and dry out your gear in the drying room.
