Friendly staff, and a very unique experience. They have free wifi, and fresh herbs in their courtyard. If you get the chance you should definitely wander around the corner to the west coast brewery as well. Brewmaster Grant is sure to show you a great time.

Stayed here for a night during my travels in the South Island and they had an amazing kitchen, clean and nice dorms, friendly staff, very cool murals and plenty of room to chill and relax. Absolutely top pick for any bagpacker! Plus they have free wifi!

I intended to stay at Bazil's Hostel just for one night. In the end, I stayed for almost 4 months there, because Westport and Bazils are great. My time at Bazils was one of the best time I had during my travels. The Hostel itself is very clean and looks pretty cool and relaxed. The cleaners clean the whole hostel... More

This hostel is fantastic, one of the best I've stayed at in New Zealand. It's so homey and comfortable with all kinds of awesome little touches to make the stay enjoyable. The kitchen area feels like a cozy dining room, and I really liked that they had a whole spice rack full of things to choose from and use. The... More

The hostel is clean, warm, comfortable, the kitchen is very beautiful (like how we wanna have), free wi fi (something rare in New Zealand) and good localization. We spend a long time in the reception talking about everything, so friendly and genial!!! Moreover, you... More

I have stayed at Bazils twice now and the second time was even cooler. There was more funky murals on the walls, 2 cool baths out the back and while in the area we went and checked out some more of the mountain bike trails. I highly recommend staying here as it has to be the best place to stay... More

Stayed at Bazils many times and there are several reasons why. Very tidy, charming, cosy atmosphere (always happy reggae tunes blasting out of the speakers). A lot of space and great facilities. Super friendly and helpful hosts. If you give some love back, you might be lucky and get the chance to jump on the boat to go catch some... More
