If you are looking to stay in a mixed dorm starting at $28 pp or treating yourself to a private twin $66 or double room $70-$90 there is an option to best suit your winter or summer holiday.
In the summer we have a large outside area equipped with BBQ. You can soak up the sun, enjoy the view or share a meal with friends. We have bike rentals so you can take a trip around the lake or for the more advanced a down hill trip around the Deans Bank track.
We cater for the winter season with a drying room, heaters in every room, wireless internet and plenty of off-street parking. Our communal kitchen offers complementary tea, coffee and sugar.
Lonely Planet 2013 rated Wanaka Bakpaka in their top 5 places to stay in Wanaka and Queenstown.
