Very friendly staff. Super accommodating. Room and hostel were clean. Bed was comfortable. Kitchen was nice and plenty of cooking supplies. Bathroom showers were freezing and had to walk through the kitchen. To get to the showers which was a bit awkward. Good spot to stay, would definitely go again.

The homiest little hostel ever! With an old fashion style kitchen, a lounge area with open fires and comfy couches and rooms that are clean and warm. The guys that take care of this place are absolutely hilarious and has put their souls into making it a home away from home. Absolutely recommend.

We stopped here one night in July 2015, so during the winter season and it was raining. So we didn't get to use all the outdoor facilities and the surf school, but the kitchen looked pretty awesome. The bathroom looked clean as well. The room was fairly spacious, but basic. Fine for one nights stay, but not for an extended... More

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.
