    Fantastic hostel! Noah’s Ark is located in a beautiful huge old house. I got the best room. Very friendly hosts and friendly hostel. People actually talk to each other instead of staring at their devices! A great place to relax, very homely.

    Very nice and cozy atmosphere, pet cat and dog welcomed me when I walked in which made my day and staff was very friendly. Kitchen was awesome and dining area and rooms were clean, location is also close to some good restaurants and close to the bus and train station.

    Unique place - worth a visit just for the experience! But also very friendly, excellent service and great for kids. We were amazed at the level of animal-theming, down to bed covers and a huge 'giraffe' soft toy in our room, which my 7 year old absolutely loved. Beautiful old historic building with a very cosy lounge, lots of books. Very homely. Loved staying here.

    I stayed here in winter so it was pretty empty (a few long-term guests and some few-day travelers). The owner was extremely kind and very helpful with recommendations or anything else you need. Overall the facilities were good, although the bathrooms could be a bit dirty (usually due to other guests) or lack certain supplies (toilet paper). Compared to the other hostels in Greymouth (from what I've heard), I would say this is your best bet for a clean and comfortable stay (that's well-priced).

    Nice hostel in a big old mansion with plenty of character. Very friendly staff. I booked a private single room and they upgraded me to a double which was nice and clean with very comfortable bed. Only one small complaint, the bathroom was awkwardly designed and not very clean with mould on the walls. Still recommend.

    Great location close to the bus/town/supermarket. Lovely animal theme throughout the hostel. A rowdy group of sports supporters stayed there at the same time as me but the owners took well care of me and made sure I had a comfortable stay.
