Please note the hostel is closed for refurbishment from June 5th - September 1st 2018. We apologise for any inconvenience.

In the middle of Arthur's Pass Village, you'll find our cosy backpacker lodge complete with multiple room types, a spacious communal kitchen, and homely lounge. This well-located accommodation is a hiker's haven, and our guests enjoy the low-maintenance small-hostel feel they come home to.

We're happy to help with tips for your stay; YHA Arthur’s Pass staff are experienced kiwi listeners and can give good instructions about where to go to hear these special New Zealand birds. Keas visit the hostel frequently; let us know if you need help spotting them!

As groceries are expensive and limited in Arthur's Pass Village, we advise you to purchase groceries in Hokitika, Greymouth, or Christchurch before you arrive.
