I stayed here for 2 nights a couple of weeks ago. The staff are professional and extremely helpfull . The rooms are spotlessly clean - as is the rest of the place. I have stayed here before and would have no hesitation in staying there again. Highly recommend. Chris from Clyde.

Sorry for John because it's a nice person but I was in room 5 yesterday 24/12 and found three different times bed bugs: over my bed, on the wall and over my suitcase (see picture). This problem can't be solved just with some spray over the mattress and requires closing and do some kind of fumigation. Disappointed because the place... More

We went during the day of storm. The room is clean & comfort, bathroom is clean, kitchen with full facilities. Friendly staff and dorm mate. A bit noise during the night as some ppls was watching ghost movie. Everything was good.

There is not a lot of choice for hostels in hockeytika but this was a good spot for the night. I'm not saying it's bad maybe I have been spoilt with accomodation during my trip and it has ruined me, the positives, it's in the centre of town, lots of car parking, nice staff. My overall impression of this town... More

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.
