Whilst this was a very lovely hostel, well decorated and really clean I feel that it doesn't offer the same value for money as other hostels. The free wifi of 100mb is severely lacking and the fact the spa is $5 for 45 minutes, when the aquatic centre across the road has a spa for $4.50 unlimited use , is really annoying. However, saying that I ended up having to stay in Greymouth a few days and the hostel was really homely, the log fire good and it was very comfy and warm with a luxurious feel.

The hostel was very nice. The decor was very unique and tidy! The beds were the nicest I've slept on in a hostel, linens were soft and the pillows actually felt like a pillow. The one downside was that the wifi is is not unlimited and only avaliable in the common room. The pricing of this hostel is great, it doesn't feel like a budget accommodation.

Came in late so they left the keys out for us, very helpful with everything! The place has a really cool African art decor. Very clean, secure and friendly. A little bit out of town, but we had a car so it didn't matter.

Among all the places I've traveled around south east Asia, Australia and New Zealand, this is no doubt the best one I've ever stayed. Great staff here and all the places are delicately designed with art works in different culture styles. very close to the supermarket and you can enjoy a good walk around the lake.

Very nice place, one of the beat hostels Ive ever stayed in. Also nice single rooms if you prefer one. lots of common space , lots of art and very clean, good staff! . Its a bit of a walk to town but there are bikes and other places nearby to get food etc. Greymouth isnt big anyway, but the ocean is very close and ther are some fun things to do. I stayed here a number of years ago and glad to see its still going well!

The weather outside was frightful, but inside was most delightful! There was such a level of artistry evident everywhere you looked. The hostel had an African theme reflected in beautiful wall hangings, mirrors, artifacts, even hangers and waste baskets! In addition to this, our room was clean, comfortable and reasonably quiet. We didn't use the kitchen, but thought the bathroom was beautiful with new hand basins mounted onto the .counter top, and state of the art tile work.

Probably the best hostel I've stayed in, very clean, comfortable and with an excellent kitchen. Additionally a small TV room with a large selection of films and a very homely lounge. Location is about as good as you might hope, 15 minute walk into the small town but just a 5 minute walk to the supermarket and right on the river. Free bike and kayak hire available was a great touch, staff very friendly and helpful pointing out all the things to do in Greymouth. Would definitely stay again.

Very beautiful hostel, clean and safe, it's a nice place to stay even if Greymouth is not the best city in NZ, but the region around is pretty amazing. Just one thing ; 50MB wifi is just a joke :-). We can use the bikes freely, the hostel is close to a New World, it was a pleasant moment for a break during our road trip.

This is my first, and probably my last review, but this hostel was by far the best ever. I think they hired a team well experienced traveller and putted everything at the right place. Wauw. Thanks for this experience. Enjoy.

This was such a sweet hostel and we really enjoyed our stay here! The facilities and room were great and we loved how brightly coloured everything was, it just made it seem more homely. Lovely touch as well to have the free bikes so we were able to cycle part of the west coast track in the evening and watch the sunset. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
