This hostel is one of the coolest places to stay in in the whole of new zealand! If you love a chilled out vibe and the possibility to explore, this hostel is the place to be on the westcoast. You can get the gear to go surfing, fishing, paddleboarding or kayaking. Make sure you hire a bike to do one... More

I was here in March the first time. Actually, I just wanted to stay here for 1 night. But alltogether I spend here 2,5 weeks in March. And at the End of June, I came back. Already on the way to Westport I had a feeling of coming home... Best feeling you can have when you are far away from... More

Stayed here for a week and I didn't want to leave! Everyone is really friendly and they even helped me to patch up my surfboard! Great for surfers or anyone wanting to learn. In walking distance of shops and bars. Really chilled environment. My favourite hostel in New Zealand!

Can't speak highly enough of this awesome little hostel. Owners are the most friendly, chilled out and down to earth people you could ever meet. No request is too much and they are so helpful and accommodating. Hostel has two huge kitchens with all cutlery/plates/pots etc provided, couple of tv lounges and an awesome deck and yard area with lots... More

These guys were awesome! Friendly, knowledgeable, down to earth, and hilarious! This is a wonderfully homely backpackers. The room I stayed in had a fire and a VHS collection!! Me and the girls watched a chick flick at the end of our day - it was perfect! Only minutes walk to the main street where there's an excellent cafe and... More

I stayed at Bazil's hostel for one night in August (wish I could have stayed for weeks!). It is really your home away from home, with a decked out kitchen and BBQ area, comfy rooms, free wifi and helpful and kind staff there is not more you could ask for.

Staying in the Bazil´s was so far the best decision I made during my travels through NZ. Actually i just wanted to stay there for one night and travel on the next day - but i ended up staying there for several weeks..or maybe even months? I don´t know...lost my sense of time.. Clean rooms, nice beds, well equipped kitchens... More

I stayed at Bazil's for two weeks and I really enjoyed my stay. Two cats, free wifi, surf lessons, great people, awesome kitchen, heaps of things to do (paddle boating, mountain biking, seal colony nearby), very, very cosy lounge with a fireplace and many movies to choose. Highly recommended :)
