Host was very welcoming and every night he makes a pot of tasty soup for all. Kitchen set up is great and everything is clean. Bikes are available and there's a grocery store nearby. A great place to stay. Great hostel to visit.

Quiet decent place to sleep and explore the city. Hostel has a strange and corky design with bathrooms/sinks/showers in odd places. The managers are wonderful people with lots of local insight to offer (Greymouth is seriously underrated). The free soup is phenomenal! Free bikes are very nice too. The wifi is slower but has coverage to rooms. Rooms have good beds but need better power points & lights.

Good, clean hostel with basic facilities. Really appreciate the unlimited, free wifi. The kitchen was large and clean, we were able to make our dinner with no trouble. Dory and his family were great. We happen to be there for their Hanukkah celebration. We aren't Jewish but had a great time celebrating with them. Dory was helpful and friendly, and even mailed me the $20 deposit which I forgot to pick up when I left.

Excellent atmosphere and very friendly and helpful staff. We've been invited by the owner to celebrate Hanukkah with his family and it was a great evening :-) He also borrowed us some bikes after we checked out (for free!). Free unlimited WiFi, a small breakfast and soup in the evening.

Dory was absolutely brilliant. He was welcoming and helpful and very passionate about his job. Free homemade soup and breakfast, lovingly served in a fireplace-warmed room. Free wifi and bike rental to top it all off. Anyone staying in the Greymouth area should stay at the Duke .

I had an excellent welcome at the hostel. The manager was very friendly and helpful. He upgraded my room, carried my bag up the stairs and offered me a lift to the station. He definitely went above and beyond.
