    Spectacular stay in Greymouth. Rooms are large, comfortable and have lots of cute/special touches. Bathrooms and kitchen are clean, spacious and well equipped. The atmosphere is amazing, super chill, friendly and adorable with the pet animals!

    Easily the best hostel we stayed at in New Zealand, Noah's Ark has a great theme, great staff and a very relaxing vibe. Cosmo and Jessie (the hostel's dog and cat) were very friendly and well behaved, and were a nice reminder of pets back home. Highly recommended, we ended up staying two nights extra (for a total of five nights) even though Greymouth itself is rather boring.

    An oasis in a crossroads town, Noah’s Ark feels like a small, friendly village. High ceilings, long corridors and friendly staff make the hostel feel inviting and relaxed. The atmosphere was fun and social, and the kitchen is well-equiped. Plenty of on-street parking and an open backyard area with a BBQ. We had the zebra room and while we thought the animal themes were a little overdone they were playful and interesting. Hot water, good pressure. Good value for a private room. Would stay again.

    A lovely charming old building with sun filled balconies and an excellent location close to train station, intercity bus stops and town centre. Friendly staff. Mattresses a bit thin, and no outlet for phone charging near each bed, powerboard provided near the door instead. Friendly cat and dog around, probably wouldn't recommend if allergies are a concern for you!

    Stayed in a private room for four nights, really enjoyed our stay. Linda and Rob were very friendly and helpful. It was clean and comfortable with facilities for cooking and plenty areas to socialize. Would definitely recommend.

    Really nice hostel in a huge house, full of character! Our room was a 5-bed dorm. A bit smelly (lots of guys..). Mattresses are old and sunken, but the duvet is very cosy. Communal areas and kitchen are good. Very busy at times so cook whenever you spot it quiet! Free parking over the road. Really good location. Shops and brewery in walking distance. Nice staff.

    Had booked 3 nights, ended up staying 1. A bit confused by the previous reviews, we found the hostel to have a bit of a creepy atmosphere and the staff we interacted with were not very friendly - upon check in a few staff seemed to openly mock previous guests. The theme was ovebearing and uninviting to adult guests, though a child might enjoy it.
