The million-dollar view from this hostel will add a whole new meaning to your trip. Great rooms and a homely environment are awaiting you. Located right on the lakefront, with unobstructed views to the mountains beyond. A large cosy lounge with a log fire in winter overlooks the lake and is the ultimate place for watching the incredible shades of blue of this glacier fed lake.

Experience a variety of walks, fishing, and scenic flights around Mt Cook and glaciers. Play squash and golf, or have a go at ice-skating, cross-country & downhill skiing. Visit the Church of the Good Shepherd, or take a tour of the Southern Hemispher by night. Stargazing tours depart from close to the hostel.

Our friendly, knowledgable staff are available all day to help with your activity bookings or onward accommodation.

There is no bank in Tekapo but we do have an ATM which accepts all major credit cards.
