Lake Tekapo Youth Hostel is surprisingly, located right in front of Lake Tekapo in the centre of New Zealand’s South Island. Its main attraction is the huge window with an incredible view of Lake Tekapo and the mountains and has got to be one of the best views I’ve ever had in a Youth Hostel.

Lake Tekapo Youth Hostel, New Zealand


The great thing is its not just a incredible view, its a nice hostel as well, with a cosy lounge with a wood burning stove and all the things you need in a Youth Hostel. The surrounding scenery is nothing short of spectacular and its well worth a visit.

There are 30 beds, with a bed prices from 22.00 NZD, you can read reviews and book Lake Tekapo YHA online with Hostel bookers.
