Such a cool looking hostel, I love the hipness of the garden! Generally a good place for a few days, but nothing much to do in Wesport.
Small kitchen, otherwise quite good. Please could you advertise if you accept tour buses like the Kiwi Experience. Had I known I would not have stayed at this hostel. Also the wifi username and password system is flawed. Once one person knows they simply tell the rest of the hostel. Either make it free or have a more secure system.
Pretty standard really. Spacious, clean rooms; clean and plentiful shower/toilet facilities; decent Wi-Fi. Crowded and busy due to its inclusion on the Kiwi Experience itinerary, which ruins the atmosphere somewhat. Location is average, but frankly ere is little of interest in Westport to be close to anyway. On the other hand the staff are friendly and helpful and surfing lessons can be booked from reception. If you must stay in Westport this place is as good as any.
The staff is really nice here. The guy at the reception hooked me up with a woofing job, which was awesome. I also paid for my accommodation and surf lesson by pairing a mural on their wall. The hostel can feel a bit divided. There's the Kiwi Experience people that stay in one part of the hostel and the other people that hang out, cook etc at another end.
Great place to be and best relax time Iv ever had cheers Brazil's best

Enjoyed our short overnight stay here. The guy on the front desk arranged for our motorbikes to be secured under shelter, which was awesome and unexpected. The place was buzzing with punters on Kiwi E tour, and was a great atmosphere. Until approx 11.30 PM, when adverts all told to go to bed. Didn't realise there was a curfew, whichtook away from an enjoyable, quiet conversation with a traveller from Denmark. There is also a `No Alcohol` curfew of 9.30 PM for the hostel grounds. Will be back :)
Staff were friendly and helpful. A busload of kiwi experience hooligans were outrageously noisy when they came in around midnight, but they did respond when I confronted them, and kept the volume down after that. The bikes for our use were a and the handy and in a good state of repair,The surf gear/surf lessons were a nice touch.
It was a nice hostel with a good atmosphere. The staff were friendly and helpful, we liked the theme of the hostel and would stay here again.
The free pudding and ice cream is great, but no door locks is weird and unnerving.
Great hostel, great staff, stayed here for xmas and there was a great atmosphere. The guys were even happy to drop us off and pick us up to go stand up paddle boarding on xmas day! We booked a private room which was such great value. Facilities were clean. We Had a really good stay :)
A really lovely place to stay for a few nights. smaller hostel with much more friendly atmosphere compared to large flashpacker hostels. Offer surfing and paddle boarding from reception. free wifi a big plus. several kitchens well equiped to make anything you like. very chilled and relaxing stay. would recommend to anyone
Cool vibes at this hostel, however our 4 person dorm was absolutely tiny. Just enough room for two bunk beds. Our bags barely fit! I also thought it was pretty strange that they started blasting music at about 8am, one way to get people up and checked out! Otherwise I enjoyed it, cool people... A lot of hippie vibes going on in that place!
Extremely friendly and accomodating staff, but for this price a bit of a shabby place (old smelly furniture).
