Struggling for sleep in Kaiteriteri
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful. We'd called earlier since we would be arriving after hours, and were told that they would leave us the key. However, when we got there, we realised there was a mixup with them not having left us the key, but they were able to sort it out quickly Very convenient location, right across from beach and next to restaurants and beach shops. Boating trips pick you up less than 5 mins walk away. Cons: Mattress seemed very old and uncomfortable and would sink in when you sat / slept on it, till you could feel the springs. No toiletries provided, even though we had a private room with ensuite bathroom. Communal kitchen wasn't very clean. No free WiFi and has to be bought separately. We stayed during a heatwave (close to 34C) in the South Island. Fan provided was a joke, you had to sit less than a foot from it to feel the fan breeze. We had to open the windows, but there was no breeze since there are buildings around the hotel, also, since they don't have any screen on the windows, we had quite a few insects crawling in. Also, open windows meant that we were kept awake by all the folks chatting outside late into the night. Basically, this is like a hostel. Even if you get a private room with ensuite bathroom, don't expect more than a hostel. Overall, didn't feel like it was good value for the cost of the room.

Basic backpacker hostel
The hostel is very basic but the rooms are functional. The room smelled slightly of damp and the shower in the en suite made the whole bathroom floor wet which was annoying. For the price, it’s an average backpackers hostel - you get what you pay for!

If in NZ do not miss.
An en suite room n a backpackers lodge at the beginning of Abel Tasman National Park, for softie retired travellers like us, a brilliant place. Somewhere to visit if visiting NZ

Location perfect but so noisy!
A real mixed bag of a place. We spent two nights here and we struggled to sleep well due to noise from the kitchen and the loud plumbing works of surrounding rooms. The kitchen noise stopped about 1030-11pm, but started again around 6am, so doesn't give you much chance to rest fully after walking all day through the glorious Abel Tasman. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful enough, but could not do anything to change our room as it was full. The location could not be better though and for that we would consider staying again - there is not a lot of other options within this bay. The boat tours pick up 2 mins away and there is a restaurant, bar and shop (closes at 1730) close by. A simple stay with far too much noise, but a great location and helpful staff.

Great value for money
We were staying overnight prior to walking the Abel Tasman track. Great value for money and very comfortable. Included all the services you need and then some. Handy to have wifi and the fridge in our room was a bonus.
