This was one of the only hostels available on the night we wanted to stay. We had the self-contained unit. Plaster in toilet all cracked. Double mattress uncomfortable. A bit tired looking. We went up to the main hostel at one stage. Lovely manager working but hostel reeked of cooked food. It was budget so we got what we paid... More

Great location at center of town, facing clock tower. It has a big carpark. Friendly staff at reception upon check in. We stay in a self contain unit of 4 persons with a little kitchen and own bathroom. Room and bathroom is clean, but the beds were too soft for my liking. There is a common kitchen in the main...

I debated for some time about how to leave a review for Mountain Jade, and decided to present the facts as simply as possible and let them speak for themselves first. Please use your own judgement when deciding how to interpret my story -- I've offered my own later. - I slept on the bottom bed of the bunks closest... More

My partner and I stayed in an 8 bed dorm room for two nights. The hostel is in a convenient location in the centre if town, in walking distance of the beach, shops, supermarket etc. The place was clean and cheerful, the only reason we are giving 4/5 stars is because the room was a little cramped with 8 people...

Mountain Jade was a fantastic place to stay in Hokitika. The price was great and the service even better. A very relaxing lounge to hang out in, and all amenities were top-notch. The location is right on the main street, couldn't be better. Dorm rooms are large and clean, with plenty of space for everyone's gear. John is a fine... More

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

Hi Thank you for your review. We are happy that you had a good stay with us here in Hokitika. We have looked at options to make the kitchen area larger but are unable due to space we have here. We hope the rest of your stay in New Zealand is as good. Safe Travels Mountain Jade Backpackers More
