    Had the Best time. I met Alex and the girls, talking about Arizona and the lovely girl at the desk who helped me very much. Walked to the beach and got Awesome sunset photos. Close to the Pancakes and walked the Coalcreek path to the waterfall with Debra, again excellent photos for my book and exhibit. Love the vibe from the rain-forest and the fragrance at night lulled me to sleep. Adore the gorgeous birds singing to me in the morning. Tell Debra I left my white wine and to share with all

    Absolutely lovely stay! Our room far exceeded our expectations, the location felt exotic but with all the comforts of home. We would insist that anyone staying near Paparoa choose Te Nikau!

    Our stargazer cabin did not have a lock, but it was no problem because we kept our valuables in the car. other than that, this was the best hostel i've ever stayed at ! the stargazer is like a little wooden tent, and has clear glass panels on the room so you can see the beautiful stars! The common areas are very nice, and theres plenty of room for everyone. I would love to come back to this hostel!

    Our family of 4 adults stayed one night only on our drive from the west coast and Arthur’s Pass to Picton It was a great little find, a very spacious cabin and very close to the local tavern where we had dinner. We did not have time for any of the hiking or trek is but we certainly did our share of sight seeing and photography over the Taman Sea. Loved the pancake rocks and blowhole! Recommended.

    A few minutes drive outside the town, Hidden away in the bushes. Clean rooms and well equipped kitchen. Lots of buildings with different dorms/rooms. We were in the Rata lodge in a private room and it was very comfortable

    Very Good

    Very relaxed place. Although there are no locks on the doors, it's very secluded so it didn't feel unsafe for one night. I wouldn't have felt comfortable leaving my belongings there the whole day as it is a building about a five minute walk/ two minute drive from reception.

    I can definitely say that the lady at the front desk was excellent and the nearby beach was cool. I’m reviewing the 6 bed dorm. My bed was fine, but the empty one next to mine was so flattened that my butt hit the floor when I laid down. I’m definitely not overweight. There were only 2 wall plugs - one in either side of the room. No locks on anything. The front desk doesn’t give you a key, because nothing is locked. The WiFi definitely didn’t work and there was no cell reception at all.

    No locks on any of the doors, only security is that it's the middle of nowhere One bathroom (shower, toilet, sink) for the whole dorm room, which is downstairs and outside in essentially a shed, with a door that doesn't lock either. So you're always waiting to use the bathroom. Bedroom includes two mattresses just on the floor to be used as beds - not comfy. Also a faulty fire alarm went off in the middle of the the night too. Would recommend booking somewhere else, it's just not worth it
