Hi there!

Im planning to go to New Zealand in the next 2 months working my way round both islands, anyone have any tips on good places to see or good hostels, how much you think per day?

I think you'll find most jobs were filled up long ago or by regulars. Buy a Lonely Planet guide to New Zealand which will answer most of your questions. Accommodation is fairly plentiful in NZ but not that cheap.

You can wwoof of course for board and lodging:

Or volunteer for great experiences:

Or just do some seasonal work:

You can still ski in the south or enjoy spring in warmer Northland. The worst weather is June-August, travelling should soon be fine in most places.
