Liked: Quick walk from the few shops and bars in Te Anau, bed was comfortable. staff were helpful.

Disliked: Really wasn't clean at all compared to all the other YHA Hostels we stayed at, room was very basic, only one bed side table in a double room, no bed side lights, people were EXTREMELY noisy in the room above ours at night and it was difficult to sleep, could hear people snoring from room next door so walls must be paper thin, poor facilities for the amount of people staying there.

Liked: Nice property (not that there is much option at Te Anau =) Clean, and nice big kitchen.

Disliked: They start cleaning the kitchen at noon, and promise to be done by 3pm. For a large portion of people this probably isn't an issue (since they are leaving early or arriving late from treks), but is painful for folks there during the day when noon is when you want to cook lunch!
