Welcome to The Albatross!

We invite you to join us in our ever-changing home and share life and stories with other independent travellers.

Run by travellers for travellers you'll find everything you need from comfy, fully-made beds, spacious well-equipped kitchen, colourful lounge and shared bathroom facilities to a variety of musical instruments, board games, books and even an art corner!

An eco-friendly hostel, we take steps to limit our environmental impact from extensive recycling, composting and herb and vegie gardens to offering you free Fair Trade organic tea, coffee and hot chocolate.

Our friendly staff are Kaikoura lovers and full of local knowledge, available to book tours, onward travel and accommodation and are always free to teach you some chords on the ukulele!

Join us in beautiful Kaikoura, where the mountains meet the sea and enjoy warm communal vibes, shared meals with new friends, jam nights, pancake Sundays (including sleep ins and late checkout!) and our famous winter onesie-land!

We look forward to meeting you soon and hope that The Albatross feels as much a home to you as it does to us.

Ben and Katie (and Louie, the hostel cat)

Prices are per person per night.
