Great location, not a great welcoming!

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 1 Feb 2019
Didn't start well with the other half of our party getting upgraded from a double room to a family room for half the price of what we had to pay. The lady in charge thought this was hiliarious when I suggested maybe not to do this in front of me as it may leave a bitter taste. Moving on.... rooms were as expected, breakfast was reasonable. You get what you pay for (and some pay more for the same).

This is a great place to stay in Hokitika. The staff are friendly, the dorm room is big and spacious with lots of natural light, it's all super clean, the free breakfast is great, it's in an ideal location close to the bus stop, and they have lots of recommendations for things to do in the area. Highly recommended!

Stayed here for 1 night as a alternative to the kiwi ex stop and it was such a good decision! John and his wife are lovely hosts and go out of their way to make sure you have a comfortable stay. The place was clean, kitchen well stocked and the female dorm was a decent size. The atmosphere is calm yet sociable. Highly recommend! Would have loved to stay longer.

Had a friendly welcome in the hostel.
However, the room smelled a little unfresh and mouldy and wasn't very clean.
Was unlucky with the roommates as they were very loud but that's not something the owners can change.
WiFi didn't work super well, but we'll enough.
