Accommodation at Lake Tekapo's Traditional New Zealand Backpackers Hostel
"This was the best hostel experience we've ever had! Great location- 3 minute walk to the lakefront, rooms were comfortable, kitchen facilities were outstanding, friendly and helpful staff. We wish we could have stayed longer!"
Tailor Made Tekapo Backpackers Hostel offers a range of accommodation, from double and twin rooms with private bathrooms to dormitory beds.
The Hostel provides accommodation for the budget backpacker traveler, but don't worry - we do not have any bunk beds. All beds are hotel quality & are made-up with crisp clean sheets and comfy pillows.
Backpackers enjoy using the well equipt kitchen, playing the guitar in front of the log fire, or just relaxing in the hammock listening to the bird song. The staff are happy to help you find the best places to hike, stargaze or relax and enjoy the stunning views.
Located in a quiet corner of Lake Tekapo village, the hostel is only 300 metres from shops and restaurants. You can cook up a storm in our large, well-equipped kitchen, enjoy a barbecue in our gardens or wander down to the village to dine in one of the nine restaurants & cafes.
The large hostel gardens, with rustic seating and a hammock is just the place to relax after a long day exploring. Maybe take a day off and read a book in front of the wood burning fire in the lounge or soak in the Tekapo Spring hot pools.
Our hostel at Lake Tekapo also caters for families with children – just ring us to find out what room would best suit your needs.
