The biggest thumbs up for Lazy Dolphin is its location-right on the beach where Hector's dolphins come into the bay to play in the summer, and a short walk to Curio Bay where the Hoiho, yellow-eyed penguins nest. I felt lucky to be able to access wildlife literally at my doorstep. The hostel itself has beautiful large sunny rooms and a friendly host. There isn't much by way of food or supplies, however, so stock up on the essentials before you go down there. I stayed there for two nights with my partner but would happily return for a longer trip.
