    Such a lovely place. Host Neil was so cheerful and welcoming despite my late last minute reservation. It had a lovely homely feel to the place. The rooms were clean and cozy, and you could help yourself to a hot water bottle which I thought was a lovely touch. They have put a lot of thought and creativity in to making this place a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

    I went to Hokitika for a solo stay, and ended up staying for four days, mostly because the Birdsong Hostel was such an idyllic spot. I spent hours roaming the endless beach, taking bike tours, having coffees in town, but mostly i hung out at Birdsong. Kerry and Neil were the perfect hosts, so i highly recommend staying at Birdsong if you want a comfy, easy-going and peaceful stay or stop-off in Hokitika.

    Birdsong was a quaint and lovely hideaway outside Hokitika. Quiet and serene environment. Staff were helpful and had great sense of humor. I coulda stayed there a few more days. Ocean was just across the road! Just lovely get away!

    I had an amazing time at Birdsong Accommodations! It was a cute and clean hostel. It was a perfect size and very peaceful. Great view from the living room. Staff was very friendly! It was very close to the glowworms and a short drive into town. Probably my favorite hostel of my whole trip!

    Was very quiet when we stayed most likely due to covid19 and no international tourists. Very friendly staff and located out of the town but close to a little cool glow worm place.

    Really homely hostel. Staff were fantastic. My husband and I were given a twin room (we'd booked a dorm room) so were very happy! The kitchen and lounge/dining area were very clean and comfortable. Log fire too! Fresh eggs available for 50c! Bathroom was spotless. Lots of books and games around, if you fancy it. Laundry available too. Plenty of car parking. Very close to the town.
