Liked: The location was amazing and the hostel had a cool set up. It was cute with a movie room and fireplace. Not the most beautiful place, but a solid stay for Te Anau.

Disliked: We know it's not the hostels fault, but some drunk guys woke us up at 3am banging on our room door and scared us half to death. They also raided the kitchen and ate a bunch of our food. The hostel couldn't really do anything about it.

Liked: The hostel is great - it has a great location right on the lake in Te Anau and is a short walk to all the major shops. I have no complaints except in regards to wifi, and would recommend this place.

Disliked: I had a lot of difficulties with the wifi. This hostel sells wifi in varying data amounts. I didn't mind the prices - it was quite affordable. What bothered me was the method for using it. When you buy wifi they give you a unique username and password that you use to login to a unique page, but I had constant problems with the password, and the system was constantly logging me out. Also, the wifi's range only covered the lounge area, which meant the lounge was always filled with people using the internet. It would've been nice if the wifi covered the whole hostel.
