A hostel for families, couples, and backpackers
29 Mokonui Street ,
The YHA in Te Anau is a terrific facility with a lot of great amenities, plenty of space, and perfect location. If you've stayed at other YHA's in New Zealand, you know what to expect: solid quality, comfortable rooms, a quiet and home-like atmosphere, and convenient facilities.
The large, spacious communal kitchen and common areas allow everyone to spread out while still giving the hostel a friendly, social vibe. The kitchen is fully stocked with multiple stoves and sinks, while the common room areas are full of comfortable seating and games. The outdoor BBQ area is another nice place to relax, eat, and plan activities with other guests.
Various room sizes are available, including dorms and private rooms for couples or families of varying sizes, all at different prices. Some have TVs as well. Also available is internet access, laundry, 24 hour security, lockers, hot showers, and more. The staff also helps with information and the tour booking desk can arrange any activities.
The YHA is located a block from the lake near the center of town, walking distance to everything you could need to plan your Fiordlands adventure.
Guest reviews give high marks for the overall cleanliness, friendly staff, features of the building, location, and more.
