About YHA Kakapo Lodge
Kakapo Lodge Backpackers, Hanmer Springs YHA is a two-storey, purpose-built backpackers lodge with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
We are located a 2-minute walk from the thermal reserve and the village centre.
Enjoy the summer sunshine outside up on the sunny decks or read a good book down in the peaceful garden. Make the most of the evening sun and do all your cooking outside on the BBQs provided.
Winter is warm at Kakapo Lodge with a log fire and under-floor heating as well as extra duvets and blankets on request. On those cold nights cook up a storm in our large communal kitchen and dining room.
We have a range of DVDs for hire, which can be watched upstairs in the Lounge. Or you can grab a book from our Book Exchange to read during your stay.
Downstairs are the Computer Terminals which offer Internet as well as a place to upload all of your great holiday snaps. WiFi is available throughout the hostel.
