The owner is very friendly, the kitchen/bathrooms are very clean and the female dorm is very spacious. They arranged a ride for me to the Hokitika airport for free, which was really nice! :) Stayed there for two nights and for a great value! Nice lounge/movie area as well. Short walk away from the One World grocery, the bus stop,... More

Got this hostel recommended and rolled into town at 5 15 on a Saturday night (4th may). To my huge surprise, the place was closed. Call to reception unavailable as the phone box across the rd is broken. Considering the last hostel I stayed in in a town of 300 people was open til 9, I am very disappointed and... More

John is a class act and ran the show in the two nights I was there: reception, housekeeping, and socializing with guests in between. This didn't stop him from dropping everything just after checkout time to help me book a rental car (to see the Hokitika Gorge) and drive me straight over! The place was clean and comfortable, with a... More
