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 :)
