The best staff in the South Island! Helpful, smiley faces and always available for an extra suggestion. Loved the “quote of the day” board and the awesome movie nights, which I didn’t find anywhere else in the other hostels! Stunning view from the chill-out area and perfect spot to start some good one-day hikes on the surrounding peaks. So sad I had to leave so soon! Wanaka is a great town!
