    We experienced true West Coast hospitality this weekend and I couldn't be happier with our accommodation choice. The couple that run this place are absolutely lovely; they were friendly and super helpful. Check in and out was a breeze and it made the whole weekend flow just that little bit smoother. I would recommend to anyone who wants to stay in Hokitika; especially during Wild Foods!

    This hostel has an interesting dynamic attached to it, as the owner and operator lives on-site. However, she was very personable and kind, so I was unbothered. It was a standard hostel and had clean facilities and good security. The Value for money was spot on for this accommodation, and for these reasons I would recommend Mountain Jade Backpackers to any traveler.
