Good stay
We (2 people) were in a 4 room dorm. There was a bathroom en suite and as the room itself the bathroom was quite big. Only disadvantage was that the bathroom was flooded after taking a shower. The kitchen was also big enough and clean. Nice location at the lake.

  Schon ab 20:30 Uhr war bereits niemand mehr vor Ort, durfte in meinem Auto schlafen. Vielen Dank Lakefront Backpackers.

It was ok ...
is not an amazing Hostel but it was ok, we only needed to stay here for a night -- we had our own kitchen, the heater was too small, and it was a cold, but it was alright, is close to everything.

Don't Stay here -- they overcharged me by 4 dollars for my room.
I booked online 4 months in advance for the cheapest price and paid the deposit online. When I arrived the person on the desk told me the room was full. i had to pay an extra 2 dollars a night. When I got to my room, the people in the room who checked in before me paid the amount I originally was going to pay on my online booking. When I talked to the women on the desk she tried to trick me because I am from France and not a native speaker. She refused to give me the 4 dollars back. The staff are very unfriendly and don't want to help. Only stay here if you want a rude service and to be ripped off. I stayed here December 2012.

Very cozy, good for meeting people
This hostel was in a beautiful location, right next to the lake. I used it as a base to travel to Milford Sound from. It had a nice fireplace and cozy lounge. I liked it, and met some really nice people!

  Had read quite a few negative reviews about this place and didn't quite know what to expect. We booked a double room with en-suite and ended up in our own little cottage with free towels and a TV. We were very happy with our cottage, very nice and clean and for the price we paid it was a steal. The only negative about this hostel is that the kitchen next to us (there is a bigger kitchen in the main house) was very basic, just one stove, and not that many utensils. Considering the price we paid and what we got for it I would stay here again if I'm in the area in the future.

  I've stayed here over the years starting in 1996 and will no longer stay there. It hasn't changed in years, literally, same kitchen, same furniture, same everything. It's starting to look tired. When they charged $11 for a bed, it was ok, but not for the price they charge now. If you end up here, it won't be the end of the world, but there are other options in town that are a better value.

  The one and only good thing I can say about this place is about where it is situated: not too far to walk to the shops. Other than that, it's very expensive.
