I *LOVED* this hostel-my favorite in New Zealand. Starting with the warm welcome, to the clean and quaint dorm room with sitting area, to the hot shower available even after I checked out. Wish I could have stayed longer. Wonderful staff, wonderful surroundings. More

10min walk into town center. Lot of long term stayers. Double bed rooms seemed to be a lot nicer than our twin room. Twin room had really cheap interior. More

It was raining like hell when we arrived, but this didn't change anything about the hostel being a very nice place to stay at. It is not too crowded, the room (3 bed private) and bathroom were clean and well equipped (TV and a tea/coffee corner), the guy that checked us in was very More

We were initially ignored upon arrival at the Hostel - one lady was on the computer, but did not look up to acknowledge us or explain that the 'real' receptionist would be with us soon. When the 'real' receptionist arrived she was very friendly and helpful, I have scored average for the More

An ok hostel, but have stayed at better in Kaikoura. The location was a bit set back from the main road which would not have been great if we didn't have a car getting up at 5am for the dolphin swim. Some of the reception staff were a bit miserable, b others were great! Had a rainy day and More

One of the worst hostels I have stayed in. When I arrived, I had to wait for over 15 minutes before someone came to reception. I had to look around the hostel and talk to the bartender at the adelphi pub to work out who was supposed to check me in. Furthermore the guy that checked me in More
