Stopped here on the way down the west coast on a road trip. Great place to stay for the night and also a quality little town. Kitchen a little small, but a large lounge area and very good central location.

Large lounge area and balcony, the beds weren't amazingly comfortable even for a backpackers. Was pretty clean. I liked the style of the place with wooden interior and local ornaments, suited Hokitika.

We took the oppotunity of the winterspecial pay two stay three so it was a really cheap option to stay in hokitika. The guy at the reception was nice and friendly but thats the only advantage. The interior of the hostel was old and a bit shabby. The kitchen was cleaned just by wiping the benches so we prefered to... More

Nice place and easy to find as its just in front of the clock tower. Parking space at the back. Host is friendly and welcoming, nice room, clean bathroom and toilet, well stocked kitchen with plenty of storage. The only down side is, my room's window is facing the bar on the other side of the road, the noise from... More

We stopped over in Hokitika on our way to Franz Josef from Nelson. Great little backpackers, clean and comfortable. The man on reception was lovely and gave us a dorm room to ourselves since it was quiet and we first asked for a double, which they didn't have available - we appreciated this. The kitchen doesn't have much preparation space,... More

Stayed here for one night in a double room. It's a fairly basic place but when you're travelling you don't need anything else. The owner/manager was very nice & easy to chat to. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed. Our bed was comfy and the room had a heater which was a definite bonus. There's a good communal area with... More

A very homey place. You really couldn't ask for more from a hostel. Great location, very accommodating and friendly staff. No stuffy rules and no need for them as the atmosphere is so laid back. Unbeatable prices in the most peaceful setting, a perfect place to relax for a few days.

I only stayed here for one night, but I found this hostel to be comfortable and clean. The welcome was very warm and friendly, I even got a tour around the hostel and was shown to my room. However, I had to wait for about half an hour until I could check in because no one was at reception. I... More
