We arrived to find the key to our room sellotaped to the front door of the office as we'd come outside office hours.We lucked out with a fantastic room which was more like a suite-a double and single bed, a kitchenette and a lovely outside space. No bathroom which seemed a little odd...but we hadn't asked for ensuite so not... More

Kerry and Neil who run this hostel do a great job! They can help you with everything! Rooms and kitchen are very clean and from the common room you have a great beach view with nice sunsets! We would definitely stay there again!

Stopped here with the family and felt instantly welcomed and at home. It was a very peaceful stay. Good location in close proximity to the beach, shops and town centre. Tea and cake was on hand when we arrived which instantly revived us. Thank you!

Five of us stayed here for just one night. Kerry met us at reception and made sure we were comfortably settled in. The accommodation and facilities were great. Kerry is a wonderful hostess and made our stay even more comfortable.

The pantry area was very cosy. It makes small talks and interaction with other backpackers very comfortable. This place is small, with limited shower rooms and cooking area. Nevertheless, it is clean and well equipped. It was raining heavily on that day. Luckily, this is a hostel comfortable enough to just stay indoors and let time pass by :)

With a name like birdsong how could you go wrong? Rooms are named after indigenous birds. It's on the main road about 2 miles n of Hokitika. This in itself is a gem of a town worthy of a visit. Centre of the soapstone (jade) industry. Birdsong is run by Kerry and Neil who have definitely put their own mark... More

this was a lovely hostel to stay in, the owners have gone to a lot of effort to make sure it definitely has a kiwi feel! the kitchen and lounge were clean and cosy, with great facilities. the only downside was that we were given the room right at the front of the house, which was practically right on the...

We really enjoyed the stay in Birdsong. Our room was awesome! We had a double bed with a balcony with ocean view. The bed was freshly made and everything was clean. Also the bathroom was clean and there was a hairdryer you could use. The Hostel was quiet. Also you could walk to the glowworms, it's not far away. We... More

We stayed a night here and it was a very nice stopover. The bathrooms were probably the only draw back on the stay. They were ok, but kind of felt a bit strangely put together. The toilet and the shower are in the same room with a partition separating them. So, with one person in the shower and one in... More
