  • This Backpacker is well located, a bit far from the real center, but good to do some hikes to the nice spots around Mount Cook. The room is a bit old but functional and very safe. The major drawback was the lack of breakfast facilities. They have a great kitchen with good menu for dinners, but do not do any breakfast. That is a bit unfortunate, as there is no grocery store in town and when leaving early on hikes, the only option is the very very expensive hotel breakfast at the village center.

  • I suggest to book YHA instead (smaller, cleaner, nicer) if you dont mind 8 bed dorms. Lodge is more cheap hotel then hostel. Toilet in the room not flushing, totally crowded small kitchen, expensive and not much tasty food in restaurant, staff not helpfull. Refurbishing is needed. Still great location and ok value for money if you dont mind things above.
