Loved it
Stayed in YHA Kaikoura for four nights and loved it, the views from the hostel are stunning. It is a walk into the town but it's not a horrible walk as it's along the beach, it's about a twenty-minute walk to the seal colony. The staff are excellent, particularly Lorraine, who goes out of her way to ensure you have a good stay.

  We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kaikoura YHA. Friendly service, clean, and very comfortable. great Kitchen and the Dining area looks over the water and mountains -- stunning views! A little way from the centre of the town but if you have a car this Hostel is a Must! Very nice clean bedrooms and the TV room provided a great social area with awesome views also!

  Not a bad hostel, sure it's a bit of a walk from the centre of Kaikoura, however there is a taxi service available (ask at the i-site near the coach stop) to take you up there. Hostel itself is clean, compact, and has some truly stunning views out onto the bay. Kaikoura itself is small but pleasant. One key advantage about this hostel is that if you intend to visit the Seal colony, it's a far shorter walk than from the centre of town.

  If you want a long walk or expensive few taxis rides, opt for the Maui. Although the hostel itself is clean, friendly, and well provided, its location is terrible. It's a good one and a half miles to the nearest shop and town centre. Other hostels are much closer to the whale watching a train station. Reception has odd opening times -- closed when the train arrives. Washing machine uses only cold water and is expensive.
