It was an absolute treat to stay here. We were greeted by their pick up service, shown around by the friendly staff and automatically impressed by the place itself. It was warm and welcoming while maintaining an interesting vibe due to the décor and variety of art beautifully spread throughout. It was consistantly immaculate over our three days stay. The kitchen was extremely well kept and presented. Everthing matched - a bit of a novelty for those far from home! The rooms were lovely, each person having their own bedside table, plug socket and lamp. As a bonus, the bunks aren't connected which makes for a really comfortable sleep. They offer quite a few extras and such as free bikes, free kayaks and a cheap hot-tub with little random perks along the way too. The crowd staying were all so friendly, likely to be helped by the absence of a TV. You can easily walk to the shops and the town however there might not be too much going on. I found Greymouth itself is completely missable but the hostel is a perfect place to rest your bones for a day or two between stops.
