Lovely place to stay on the lake shore. Good facilities. Great staff. Friendly and casual atmosphere in the best YHA tradition. You get the feeling of belonging to Lake Tekapo in this place and being part of the community.

At YHA New Zealand all bedding is provided including sheets. You can bring your own towel or hire one from reception for $1. Unfortunately YHA Lake Tekapo is currently closed while we build a new hostel - due to open in October 2018. Our Nearest hostel is YHA Aoraki Mt Cook. January is a very busy time in New Zealand and we recommend booking in advance for any of our hostels over the summer months to make sure you have a bed, as due to safety reasons we can't let people stay without a bed. Prices for beds vary by location and time of year - you can see prices for specific dates and all of our hostels on our website - to find us Google search YHA New Zealand :)
