Adequate hostel, with a friendly receptionist. Suitable for a brief stay in the town, which itself is quiet.

Hi Thank you for your review your comments are important to us. We hope you have a great stay in New Zealand Safe Travels Mountain Jade Backpackers


Nicely located in middle of hokitika. Functional and has all facilities needed for a stopover but probably not a place i would stay longer term as lacking in atmosphere a bit possibly due to it being located above a giant jade store

Hi Silvia Thank you for your review. Yes we are located above the Jade Factory but we are a separate Business, We find that our customers have a great time in general and hang out and talk about their travels and experiences. Mountain Jade Backpackers


I would say this is an average hostel - has adequate facilities, looked clean, walking distance to groceries and a few restaurants and cafes. For the cost, it served it's purpose well - a place to stop overnight while on the way to other things. Unfortunately there isn't much in the town for attractions, but it does make a good stopover. The staff was very nice but I was disapointed that the wifi was not included. HOWEVER, the library is next door and their wifi is free!

Hi Christine Thank you for your review. No we do not offer free Wifi as the library offers free internet next door for us to do would be very expensive. I'm sorry you did not think there was much to do around the area people usually stay a few days and do all of the walks visit the historical museum, kiwi centre and the many craft store's in the town. We hope you come back some day so we can show you the many things to do in the area. Thanks Mountain Jade Backpackers
