    Busy hostel, fully booked, comfortable, good kitchen facilities and comfortable double bed. Easy access to many nearby hikes. A bit more expensive than some hostels, probably because of location. Not a lot of choices in the area.

    This place was nestled into the village and had spectacular views of Mount Cook behind it. The staff was nice and the kitchen facilities are awesome. We were only there for a night but it was a great spot for relaxing after some good hiking.

    Hi, I am traveling in April with my daughter. We are not driving, but will be taking advantage of some of the bus tours. The one we looked at drops us off at Mt Cook Village. Is that near the YHA? How would we go about getting to the YHA if we are not near it? Thanks, Laura Quiza
