Good Location, Nice deal.Kicthen is not that good. There is no enough seasonings like salt etc. Because it's the center of the town so it's quite noisy at night. Most people stay here for travel to Abel Tasmen because the bos stop is just on the other side of the hostel.

On my trip around the South Island this was as far north as I stayed over night. I do like good hotels but on this trip I wanted to sample all types on offer.... and I did, more than once as well. I had been on the road in my rented Toyota Surf for about a week and Motueka was... More

I booked this hostel for my 18 yr old son on a last minute basis. He was touring on his own for the first time. They looked out for him, helped him book outings, and even emailed me to let me know he made it there safely. The hostel is conveniently located to the I-site and the price was good.... More

We spent a night here in early June after visiting Abel Tasman during the day. It's located conveniently right across the street from the i-center in Motueka. The hostel reception isn't always open, but Suzanne saw us entering the i-site and hung around a bit to see if we were the ones who had made reservations earlier in the day... More

We spent one night at Hat Trick Lodge as our base to go to Abel Tasman National Park next day. We chose this hostel because it was the only one open in the area during their low season. We found the price very high considering what the room offered. It was small with double bed. Separate shower & toilet. The... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in feb. Great location to visit the beautiful Abel Tasman. If you do Kayaking or other adventures, they pick you up here free. Hostel is right opposite the i site, which is brill. Rooms were clean. A quiet hostel. The only downside I felt, was that there were not enough showers (Only about 3 I... More

I worked in Motueka briefly as many passing travelers do to work in a nearby orchard, packing house or factory. For 2 weeks I found accommodation at the Hat Trick Lodge and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The rooms are clean, the place isn't overly large, but just big enough to meet many interesting people; and due to the large number... More

Right in the middle of Motueka but not noisy. Everything about it - carpark, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, dining - was generous, spacious, clean and well maintained. Great attention to detail, nice little touches, well equipped and exceptionally helpful manager. So glad we found it.

My husband and I were looking for a base to for Abel Tasman and the Hat Trick Lodge in Motueka seemed like a good spot. When we got into the room it was clean and VERY basic. We got a double ensuite room on the first floor. I could hear people on the floor above us which was kind of... More
