Welcome to our hostel

YHA Hokitika's impressive communal facilities are well-organised and neatly presented. You are guaranteed relaxation at this family friendly two storey house with stunning ocean views and unique native bird-themed artwork throughout. YHA Hokitika is warm, comfortable, quiet and charming.
There are extra touches that make this hostel accommodation feel like home – including a pet dog, Sid, and two outdoor baths beneath the stars. Access to the beach is a 2 minute walk from the hostel. Native birds such as tui, bellbird, weka and fantail are frequent visitors to the garden.
Hokitika is the Jade Capital of New Zealand and brims with arts, crafts and natural West Coast beauty. YHA Hokitika’s hosts are happy to share their local knowledge and suggestions on local activities including walking tracks, New Zealand’s only Treetop Walkway, the stunning Hokitika Gorge, views of Mount Cook and the Southern Alps, lakes, bushwalks, fishing and kayaking.

This hostel is in a great location just across the road from the beach. We had a sea view from our room. There is also a sea view from the dining room. The hostel is really well run by the friendly owners and we were made very welcome. There is nothing to improve it really is a great place to relax.

It'd be great if the hostel can provide free wifi connection, even if with a limit of 100 mb per day.
