The Rooms

A kettle in case you need a cup of tea after your tramp through Fiordland, a hot shower to help get you ready in time for dinner. With each room having its own en-suite we're sure that you'll find your stay with us as comfortable as you'll want it.


Te Anau's got many restaurants but we reckon you might  simply take the short walk to the main kitchen area and cook yourself or travelling party a hearty meal. After dinner, chill out in the main hostel area or come back to your room and watch TV - if you can keep your eyes open after the day's exertions!


We can cater for all the following accommodation needs:

Single Occupancy

Twin / Double / Quad




See the BBH website for full room details and prices.


Did you know?

Each room has a spectacular view across Rainbow Downs towards Lake Manapouri. If the weather conditions are just right, the sunsets are stunning. Watch a time lapse video of the sun going down.


If you look across to Manapouri, you'll see 'The Monument'.


Although heavily digitally disguised, you might recognise that iconic site from the first part of "The Lord of the Rings"


The Waiau (pronounced 'Why-Ow') River just down the road took the role of the River Anduin.
