    Great place to stay! The hostel is super clean and the rooms are quite spacious. John is a great host; he really cares about the guests and takes great care of the place! There’s a nice communal atmosphere and lots to do close by. I would definitely stay here again next time I’m in Hokitika.

    Cozy hostel above a cafe. Can't get a more central location. A couple blocks from a New World and restaurants. Staff were very kind and friendly. Staff member went out of his way to help me out unprompted. Laundry was pretty cheap compared to other hostels. Has a cozy common area. Very fast unlimited wifi. Good security - needed codes for room and for hostel after a certain time. Has a good amount of parking.

    This is a very reasonably priced hostel in a great location. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean, and cereal, toast, and fruit for breakfast was a nice addition. We would have stayed longer but they were fully booked for the rest of the weekend!

    Fantastic location, friendly staff, perfect for a couple of nights stay. Plenty of parking. Free breakfast. No lockers though. Head down to the beach for sunset - 2 minutes walk away. Would stay again :)

    Such an amazing location, a short walk to the beach, the shops and restaurants. Hostel itself was cosy and clean with nice views and really friendly staff! Big car park round the back and good showers. Would be nice to have lockers in rooms.

    Central location. Free parking. Hokitika right at your doorstep. Being middle of Winter it was very quiet. However the hostel was still very clean. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen was fully equipped. Had coded locks for all rooms. Would happily stay again

    Rich was very the guy on the desk and very helpful getting me checked in and comfortable. I had an entire dorm room to myself so couldn't complain; didn't have a concern for security but I can't remember if I saw any lockers. Great showers and kitchen space and nice entertainment set up in the common room. All in all in a great hostel!
