The best part about the YHA in Wanaka is the communal spaces. The TV room was comfy and large, the dining areas were very professional and homely and the kitchen was clean and spacious. It really felt like you were in a big lodge not a hostel. Our room was a 6 bed female dorm with an ensuite and was a normal sized dorm room.
Overall a great backpackers in Wanaka.
