Pros: Andrea and Isaac were awesome! Really enjoy getting to know them and they did a fantastic job :)
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Outstanding! Just everything was perfect. Andrea and her partner are really doing a great job: they are very friendly and helpful, really take care of all your wishes (Andrea organized us and booked a tour in Abel Tasman National Park as well as a water taxi for the next day) and can always help you with advices and tips like e.g. shopping possibilities, restaurants, etc. Best place to take a break from the hectic city life and just get back to nature (and combine it with the luxurious ambiance): you're really away from the crowd but still Abel Tasman National Park is only a 30 minutes drive away. Just be aware you definitely need a car. The breakfast was delicious and so much that we could even take something for our hikes. We enjoyed it so much sitting on the patio in the evenings after a long day hiking, just listening to the sounds of nature and have a magnificent view on the small lake and the beach/sea. Thank you for unforgettable 3 days!
Cons: That we had to leave!

Happy Apple Backpackers - Motueka - Building
6
7,8 Good (410 reviews)
Overview Reviews
A Vibrant hostel in beautiful Motueka we offer dorms, private and family rooms all rooms have heating and bedding is supplied. Fully equipped large kitchen, hot showers and plenty of off street parking. FREE UNLIMITED WIFI
7,5 Good
Pros: The hostel is much bigger than it first appears, and has plenty of communal areas to relax and make food. We even made use of the BBQ (although I'm pretty sure the hosts thought we were crazy Brits for grilling in the middle of winter!) We were able to do laundry and the free wifi was excellent, and made it easy for us to plan our trip. Free parking too!
Cons: The dorm room was pretty cold, even with the small wall heater on. Extra blankets were provided but they were pretty thin.
5,5 Okay
Pros: Off street parking. Reasonably handy to town. Quiet.
Cons: A mixed dorm room with workers who were up very early. A musty room with a bed that hadn't been stripped prior. The kitchen was not very clean.
4,3 Okay
Pros: The location, it was close enough to the city and to Abel Tasman. There is a pool table and some couches in the lounge area.
Cons: Kitchen was very dirty (nasty baking trays to store the silverware, dirty utensils...). We had to throw away our food because there were a lot of mice that ate it overnight. We found many feces in our food and on the floor. Apparently there are lockers outside the kitchen but the staff never once told us it was for food storage. Reception was never open during the opening hours. The room was very cold and the heater didn't work well enough to warm up the room. The mattress is old and extremely uncomfortable. The hot shower is limited to 5 or 7 minutes (we found different documents that said 5 or 7, we didn't check which one was true). This is not a good value for money. We have to agree with the past negative reviews however it seems like the staff always finds a way to contest these reviews.
7,5 Good
Pros: Homely, staff was friendly and approachable.
Cons: Smelly carpets, room and washroom filled with spider and webs. Pillowcase is yellow.
7,0 Good
Pros: Location. Next to a great restaurant.
Cons: Room was very cold. Needs insulation and warmer blankets. One of the two showershad no cold water going in so was too hot.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: The location is great. Guy from reception very nice and helpful.
Cons: There are loads of residents living in the hostel. Like in any hostel residents take most common areas. Backpacks all over the floor of the room making it dirty and messy. Ok to stay one night.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Loved the value for money. Was perfect for what we’re needed, just a quick sleep before setting off on Abel Tasman walk. Stayed with our 3 kids aged 16,14 and 11. Was noisy at night as our rooms were right by bathrooms and people were up late and then up early. Knew what we were getting though by choosing back packers over motel etc and benefited with cheap price.
Cons: Noisy and lots of people moving about in the night which was a bit unsettling for the kids ( but to be expected)
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Nice kitchen, and garden, chill out with sofas. Social atmosphere. Had a good stay.
Cons: It's actually a long stay hostel. My room was full of stuff in boxes and had a smell from workers socks. Kitchen cutlery assortment is small, but probably stolen.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Awesome atmosphere and very inviting staff, would recommend!
9,5 Excellent
Pros: Loads of comfy sofas to sit on. Very well equipped kitchen. Comfortable double room. Clean showers and toilets. Good laundry and drying facilities including a drying line outside.
Cons: It’s a bit of a walk into the town. Didn’t like being woken at 5.50 am by a girl making a phone call on speakerphone sitting outside our bedroom window but I guess that’s the selfish attitude of a very small minority of backpackers. Not the fault of the hostel.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Great social area, large kitchen and enjoyable outdoor space. Staff were great.
Cons: Lots of flies in the kitchen unfortunately. Made us cook quick and get outta there!

9,5 Excellent
Pros: Great location, with good clean rooms. during the off season it is good value for money. The location and the area is perfect to get away from the 'town rat race'. great area to go and relax
5,8 Okay
Pros: It was a great location and I'm sure in the summer with the bars close by it would have been a very different vibe.
Cons: I stayed in the winter and it was very quiet. There was nothing to do in the town at night and the bars were closed. The hostel does not have a lounge area which meant evenings were spent in the dorms as the kitchen wasn't particularly comfortable and had an odd smell at times.
5,5 Okay
Pros: Staff is friendly and receptive, close to the beach.
Cons: Kitchen is often so busy and packed with people, really is not large enough when hostel is at capacity plus there were no sharp knives and many people don't wash and put away dishes. The hallway off our room was smelly and had a large wet spot that wasn't being cleaned up nor fixed while we were there. Walls are thin and many doors are off hallways and around our room so people were often walking in/out which causes a lot of noise. Overall, not satisfied and won't be staying again.
7,5 Good
Pros: Everything! So relaxed perfect!
Cons: Nothing! Perfect place had a wonderful time there!
