Just across the road from the 'i-site' information centre. Our hostel is visible from all Kaikoura national bus stops. Just look for the big stylish 'FISH TANK LODGE' sign!

From State Highway 1 continue into Kaikoura, pass underneath the railway bridge to take the next right turn onto West End. Go underneath the railway again past the shops and we are located on the right-hand side with a large car park opposite.
