    Great place to stay! A bit far from town.”

    Very clean, very comfortable, friendly staff

    The hostel was very clean and had amazing views. The only downside is that it is about a 30-min walk to town; however, it is a really nice walk along the water. It is very convenient if you travel to Kaikoura by Intercity bus as they have a Kaikoura YHA stop (be sure to request YHA stop when booking bus ticket). Would gladly stay there again if I visit as I didn't mind the walk into town.

    Beautiful view!!”

    Clean and had a very pleasant stay

    We stayed here for one night and it was very plasant. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. We got the room with the best blie water and snow capped mountain view. It was amazing! It is located towards the end of the road but the drive out to the town is not a far one maybe about 5 mins drive.

    Fantastic place with a beautiful ocean view”

    View, facilities, rooms

    Took a break here during my backpacking trip and I stayed for the view. It was a good choice. You can never get any similar location like this, next to a great sea-view. Parking is free, great wifi option...just great. Only problem is that its a little too far from any shops - at least 20 minutes walk each way.

    Had peaceful night of stay as Kaikoura was a quiet and serene town. YHA close to the Seal Colony and the Peninsula track. Easy access to restaurants. No fuss accommodation for traveler on budget and looking for a place to sleep.

    This hotel is a very good location and view. It is near the fur seal colony. You can ride from hotel to the shopping area and the fur seal colony around 5 kilometers each. I liked the hotel and friendly staffs.
