Great location and proximity to Milford Sound and Fjordland. Room and bed were comfortable, quiet, and secure. Friendly service from reception and wonderful tips on local points of interest. Would most definitely stay again!

YHA Te Anau was very crowded over Easter 2015, and the kitchen was too small for all the people using it. One of the toilets was blocked. The location is good and the staff friendly.

Die Mitarbeiter waren sehr hilfsbereit und kompetent. Die Arbeitsmesser in der Küche könnten gelegentlich auch einmal geschärft werben.

One of the best and most comfortable hostels where I've ever been. The room was really comfortable (taking in mind it's a hostel) with private bathroom. On the other hand the staff was very helpful and gave us really useful tips and recommendations of places to visit (thanks a lot to the argentinian staff member who recommend us to visit Doubtful Sound! ¡Muchas Gracias!).
