Accommodation at Lake Tekapo's Traditional New Zealand Backpackers Hostel
"Really nice place, clean and warm. The couple who ran the place are locals and super helpful. Their personal touches make it cozy and unique. I was in the 6 bed dorm which was big and spacious, no bunk beds and the best pillow I have slept on in a hostel! Good value, I would love to have stayed longer!"
