    We loved our stay at Mountain Jade - we wish it had lasted longer! Great facilities, excellent price on laundry, and incredibly staff (the owner was so lovely). Very central location, across from the info centre and a short walk to the beach. A must stay in Hokitika.

    Really happy with my two night stay at Mountain Jade hostel. The couple that runs this place make sure I feel just right at home. Studio 8 is an absolute dream too. One of those hostels that isn't run by "robots".

    Lovely lounge/dining area with big windows looking out at the centre of town. Breakfast of various cereals and toast available. Manager couldn't have been nicer with her friendly welcome and good local knowledge, genuinely interested in the comfort of her guests. The kitchen was a bit small.

    Very nice and clean Hostel, perfect location as it is above a shop very quiet at night. Nothing negative to say except there seems to have been a dent in my mattress however it was still a good night sleep!
