Great spot! We stayed in 'The Unit' which slept 12 (i think) and we had a blast! Such. Lovely place and a treat to have our own space. Bazil's hostel has a real, happy, family feel. We all enjoyed watching movies in front of the fire. The staff were friendly and helpful- we appreciated that you kept checking the fire... More

My husband and I spent an unplanned two nights of our honeymoon at Bazils and highly recommend it for both the facilities and super friendly staff. Ray welcomed us and happily offered advice on how to be entertained in Westport and went out of his way to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. The bed was comfy, the kitchen was... More

Bazils was the best accommodation we had during our south island tour! Ray and Steve sorted out an awesome day of paddle boarding. Rooms were warm and the kitchens are perfect. There are cool outdoor areas, both undercover and open. Nice tv room too for us to chill out in. Bazils is the best!

I made the reservation through Agoda and made a mistake. We are traveling with Kiwi Experience but trying to make our own, independent accommodation away from the "children" because we are almost of the age of their parents and mostly grandparents. When I asked Steve at the front desk if our room has a bathroom which I thought it has,... More

Stayed one night with kiwi exp. Nice hostel with friendly owners who went out of their way to help ny friend with the doctors. Rooms were okay if not a little small and living room was cozy. Surf lesson was great even in the rain! Quirky and nice would recommend

Ray and Steve were absolutely amazing during my stay as I had to print off a whole load of work and they were more than accommodating. Thanks guys! The kitchens are lovely and the TV room is so warm. The whole place is really homely and definitely worth a stay.

Stayed here for one night with kiwi experience in the 'lounge,' which is literally a lounge with sofas, a TV and a wood burner! We had to walk outside to get to the bathroom which is an inconvenience. Kitchen and bathrooms were clean. Wifi didn't really work. Location is good, would recommend!

My friend and I ended up in the 'unit' room which housed about 12 of us. It was huge and came fully equipped with a kitchen, table and sofas with a little TV. It wasn't crammed at all though luckily! However, there was only one toilet in there for all 12 of us so I mostly used some others rather... More
