Liked: View of Mount Cook is right outside the doorstep of the hostel. The hostel is very cautious about sustainability and being environmentally friendly, so living in the hostel was an experience in itself. The kitchen is very well equipped and the free sauna was a great bonus!!!

Disliked: The rooms had a strange odour.
