Lakefront Luxury: YHA Lake Tekapo

If you’ve been inspired to explore our beautiful South Island backyard this year, chances are you’re looking for an awesome place to stay. YHA New Zealand can help you save your hard-earned cash for that jet boat ride or stargazing experience, by making sure you sleep easy in quality budget accommodation.


YHA New Zealand is a values-driven not-for-profit organisation with 35+ hostels around the country. Their latest addition is a brand new facility in the heart of Lake Tekapo. With 120 beds sitting on Tekapo’s lakefront, this state-of-the art budget accommodation option includes a mix of multi-share dormitory-style beds, private rooms and ensuite facilities to suit all types of travellers.

The modern fully equipped kitchen and lounge area features full-length windows to maximise the beauty of lake views. Expect all the usual YHA conveniences like 2GB free WiFi and on-site laundry facilities. And if you fancy some tucker, their adjoining licensed burger joint ‘Our Dog Friday’ will offer dine in and takeaway options for both visitors and locals alike. YHA Lake Tekapo is YHA’s first new build in over three decades and will give travellers a unique chance to experience one of the most beautiful holiday destinations the South Island has to offer.
