Fab hostel !

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Mar 2019via mobile
Lovely hostel in Hokitika which is right in the centre of town. The woman running it was great and very welcoming. The beds were comfy with a spacious room and smelt lovely. The kitchen was well stocked and a great place to meet people. Worth a walk down to sunset point!

I recently stayed at this hostel and it was a great experience. The hostel is situated on the town's main street next to the clock tower. There is plenty of parking in the town as there is no enforcement. The hostel is above a shop selling jade and a café.

Mountain Jade Backpackers is a friendly and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. The hostel was very clean and well maintained. The common area has a TV with a Netflix account and fibre connection Internet making it very fast. The kitchen is relatively small but well equipped with sufficient fridge and storage space.

The dorm room I stayed in was an average size, although it isn't the hostel's fault if the occupants are messy! The beds were comfortable and clean. There was also a plug multiplier so there were plenty of sockets to use.

In the reception area there was plenty of information on local and regional activities as well as restaurants and take outs. Hokitika Gorge is a must in this region and the lakes too.

Overall a great stay and would recommend.

Quite clean, good location, average mattress, worst pillows ever. Seemed to be shaping up as an ok if not sensational night. Large group appeared and immediately felt like they took over - I learnt you could fit the “f” word 3times in a 7 word sentence - each and every loudly yelled sentence - on and on and on. I tried twice to approach the manager and was totally shut down - told they were fine,she runs it tight and they would settle at 10pm -and they were just a group of old men - I felt mocked - then she went off to bed on the other side of the hostel while my daughter and I lay there listening to the foul language till late late in the night -and a few hours break before it started again in the morning. Maybe thicker walls would help Just a harmless group of older men who all rode their Harley’s in very loud disrespected every other guest and all wearing matching logo and their “club” name the next day. The manager after I approached her the second time refused to make eye contact and walked by without a greeting. Worst night of this trip - and frankly can’t think of a worse one any other trip.

Room tip: Would not go back

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!
