Lovely place, caringly appointed - really one's home away from home. Would definitely stay again!


Excellent hostel


VALUE FOR MONEY. this was my second favourite backpackers throughout the whole of new zealand. the owners are so nice and genuine and are really there to help out. the backpacker place itself has such beautiful character i wish i couldve stayed longer


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.
