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

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

I stayed here on my own in a private room and it was a great relief from the basic backpackers I'd previously stayed in. I had a great nights sleep. The shared bathroom and kitchen area is really clean and comfortable, as are the rooms. The living area has a huge tv and loads of dvds as well as plenty... More
