Adventure Wanaka (AW) is the most centrally located accommodation in town, you are just moments from Wanaka town centre and 1 minute walk from Lake Wanaka beach. At night we guarantee you’ll sleep soundly as there are no bars directly by us.

In 2023 a million dollars was spent to completely renovate this amazing location. The spacious and well-designed rooms feature custom made hand-built timber bunks that sport ultra comfortable innerspring mattresses. You’ll have the luxury of two pillows with freshly laundered linen all made up and are ready to hop straight into. Each bunk also includes USB charging ports & electrical outlets, a reading light, ample shelving, a secure under-bed storage locker and privacy curtains. Rooms also include A/C, heat pump, free high-speed Wi-Fi and towels are included as standard!

AW’s outdoor spaces are the best in town, with a grand courtyard and two deck areas AW is a great place to enjoy a drink in the sun. The guest lounge, chill out room and dining areas are super spacious for such a small hostel. This allows plenty of room for guests to chill out, work nomadically or meet new friends. You’ll be cooking up a feast in the well-appointed kitchen featuring everything from crockpots and crockery to salad knives and spices!

Their wonderfully friendly staff, whom all live on-site with our Guests, can help you plan your activities and time in Wanaka. There is a separate storage/locker room for luggage for guests arriving and departing, and another for secure bicycle parking and ski & snowboard storage. AW also offers loads of free stuff and even a simple laundry service.

Operated by a well-travelled owner, they draw on experience from having collected the best ideas from hostels in dozens of different countries and putting them all in the one place amazing place!
