Getting the bad out of the way first, this hostel was the only one of 15 from my recent trip that gave no leeway on checkout time, and charged me for an extra night. The shower was also half broken. That said, the common areas were nice, the location terrific, the beds clean and More

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

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

LOVED Kaikoura and LOVED Fish Tank!! The best nights sleep Ive had since leaving home 7 weeks ago. Free wifi with great connection. The Intercity bus literally drops you outside the door and it overlooks the ocean. Located on the Main Street but still quiet. Wonderful showers. I wish I had More

curtains were mildew-y, and the towels provided were stained. toilet light didn't work shortly after being fixed by reception, so we ended up having to shower in the dark. owners have a dog which is allowed to run around the property at times, so not the best for those who have allergies More
