The staff was very friendly and helpful. The kitchen dining lounge got a gorgeous view over the water. Our room on the 1st floor was located next to 3 others and the people made a lot of noises when banging the doors. Apart from that the hostel was pretty quiet. More

Very nice place, located on the main street and just opposite to the nakedbus stop. Warm, spacious and comfortable rooms. Enough place for the luggage (huge plus!) Good wi-fi! Some additional electric sockets in rooms would be nice. More

No secure luggage storage - you can store your luggage in the common area at Lazy Shag or securely under lock and key at the I-Site for $2. Internet not free. Lots of flies in the kitchen due to the unclosed recycle/rubbish bins. More

A great place, lots of space and seating areas, lovely warm kitchen and lounge area with logburner. Quiet and chilled-out. Our room was clean and comfortable. Only downsides are location might be a bit of a pain for people arriving in Kaikoura via bus and having to walk to the lodge and More
