Fodor's Review

A short walk from the hot pools, this large two-story building has under-floor heating and comfy wooden-slat beds, and offers various options to the budget conscious, from dorm rooms and double rooms to motel accommodations.You reach this lodge where State Highway 7 ends and the tree-divided Amuri Avenue begins. The sunny hostel is clean and tidy, with views over the mountains and surrounding park. It also doubles as the Hanmer YHA.
