The hostel started life in the 1930's as the Marist Brothers Residence. This ex-Catholic building was recently featured in the NZ Historic Places Trust Magazine. Most of the character has been retained. In the Chapel, the pews have been swapped for beds and a popular soccer table put in. The study room is now a comfortable lounge offering river and sea views.
We offer a palette of West Coast experiences. Take part in some of the most challenging white water rafting, caving, fly-fishing, quad biking and backcountry tramping. Greymouth is the perfect base to visit the Pancake Rocks, the historic Shantytown or Monteith's Brewery. Fossick for jade (pounamu) on the beach and catch a glimpse of Mt Cook.
