Nice hostel. Great kitchen!

It's like being an extra in That 70's show in this colourful hostel. The owner is lovely, very help and knowledgeable about the area. He offers free bike hire and even gives you a biscuit of arrival- so cute. I am sure in peak season the lounge and bar are a great place to hang out.

Dory goes out of his way to be welcoming and provide the best service. Nice touches with free soup every night and and toast and jam in the morning. Lots of room to dine and cook. Older facility, but would recommend to others.

We only stayed one night but one of the best hostels we stayed at during our 2 week South/North Island trip. Owners are extremely friendly and helpful. We were greeted with a free dinner (stew) upon arrival but sadly had already eaten. Then kitchen is huge, so organized and clean you'd think you're in a restaurant kitchen. Nice warm wood stove in the eating/chill out area. Cannot give enough praise for the unlimited internet. Won't find a better place!!

The manager Dorey was fantastic - friendly, knowledgable about the area, greets you with biscuits, and remembers every single person's name staying at the hostel! He obviously works very hard and it shows - toast and jam in the morning, soup in the evening, all much appreciated! Free bike hire was great, the hostel is clean, friendly, sink provided in the room was very handy. Perfect location in town. We were only there for 2 nights but we had a great stay, thank you!!

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.
