The sunrise lodge is easily the nicest hostel i stayed in during my time in new zealand. kaikoura is a beautiful town, too. the owners are wonderful, the hostel is very clean. There were no bunk beds, and no more then 3 people to a room. Nice kitchen and common room, great atmosphere! I would recommend this to anyone!! And the owners often (nearly every morning) baked delicious, free muffins for the hostel guests!! i have no complaints whatsoever!
