A great location in central Motueka and easy access into Abel Tasman. A clean and tidy complex directly across the road from the i-site. Double En-suite room was comfortable, warm and great value. Suzanne is very welcoming and helpful.

We stayed at Hat Trick Lodge during the Easter weekend as a base to go to Abel Tasman National Park. It was by far the closest place to the bus stop, making this accommodation the best one when you don't have a car. It was pretty cheap ($64/night for a double room, no ensuite) and ideal for your needs. The...

Hat Trick Lodge location right opposite the I-site is very convenient & handy to all amenities. The owner was only too willing to help us with sight-seeing options and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Our double room with bathroom & toilet attached was large & airy and although the linen was older it was all very clean. There...

This is a very friendly place to stay; the owner is very knowledgeable and helpful. Our double en-suite room was very comfortable and a good place to stay before tramping the Heaphy Track for five days. It is very conveniently situated for shops and restaurants.

Paul was very welcoming and friendly. We called at 10am, after being locked out of our car all night (long story!) to book a last minute room. He got the cleaners to prepare our room so we could go straight in, which was amazing! One of the best kitchens I've ever seen in a backpackers, lots of dishes and cooking...

A really nice and friendly place to stay in if you stop in Motueka. Everything is clean, rooms are quiet, the kitchen and balcony are nice, prices are ok, cosy like at home and the owners Suzanne and Paul are both very smily and helpful! Plus you are in front of the isite and next to the main street. Woofing...

Nice place, not overpriced especially if you have a BBH card. Big kitchen and nice terrace, got a bit crammed at peak hours but it was OK for us. We slept in a 5-bed dorm and it would have been perfect if only a couple hadn't decided to sleep in one of the single beds (when they were not supposed...

I read a lot of reviews saying that the place was quite old and run down and that sort of thing, but that couldn't be further from the truth. I only booked here as an emergency spot - we had a long drive from Franz Josef to Motueka, and it was the only place with any availability, and it ended...

Probably a mistake to book into a backpackers, but the booking company advertised it as a Lodge. The staff were friendly and the place is in a good location. We booked a double room with private bathroom. However, the sink was so small it was difficult to wash in. The room was clean, but the bed not very comfortable and...

Very nice, clean and quiet place in quiet village. Everything is there including wifi. Free for a hour and then you have to pay big bucks. I think for the price you pay it should be completely free. I think the hostel is a little bit over priced. The staff is very friendly!

“The 6 person shares are a good value but you do risk having noisy neighbors who might be night owls. If you can sleep through that sort of thing though, it's a great option.”
