Tailor Made Tekapo Backpackers Hostel

Tailor Made Tekapo Backpackers is a hostel & guest house that opens its doors to all travelers. Lake Tekapo is a glacier lake, famous for its beautiful turquoise colour, contrasting with the golden tussocks of the Mackenzie Country and the dramatic Southern Alps which surround it. We are in a quiet corner of Lake Tekapo with a three minute walk from the main town centre. Our hostel is set in a beautiful garden. We have a range of accommodation from dormitory to en-suite rooms. Families with children are very welcome. Owned and operated by Tekapo locals. Jovana and Richard would love to share their favorite places to view the night sky with you.
