Good Location, Good Facilities, Slightly Old”

Fantastic, helpful owner. Great kitchen facilities. Centrally located.

Overall, our stay at Tailr Made Tekapo was excellent. Richard was very friendly and helpful when we checked in. He gave us a map of the area and pointed out some of the more popular things to do. He also provided us passwords for 500 MB of wi-fi each. Before giving us our key he gave us a quick tour of the facilities and made sure all our questions were answered. The room was small but comfortable. There was a heater in the room that kept us toasty warm throughout the night. There was also a hot water bottle in the closest that we could have used if we so desired. The bed was slightly saggy but was still comfortable. Showers and toilets were communal and were located just down the hall from our room. They were clean and we had no complaints. At no point did we see any lines waiting for showers, even though the hostel seemed to be quite busy. The kitchen was located just across the parking lot from our room. It was very well supplied and we were able to cook both our dinner and breakfast quite easily. Just off the kitchen is a common area to hang out, read, surf the web, etc. Our only complaint was the fact that the entire facility has seen better years. We had to be careful or the handle would come off our door when we tried to pull it shut. In the morning we could hear everyone getting up in the rooms next to ours and could hear every footstep and every door close in the hall. We were getting on our way early so we didn't necessarily lose sleep over it, but we would have if we were trying to sleep in. Our visit at Tailor Made Tekapo was a pleasant one and, thanks to their affordable prices, we would probably stay again in the future.
