Where to start?? We had an easy check in and felt relaxed and at home right away. The room was warm and cosy, the beds were the most comfortable we had stayed in from starting our whole trip. Ray was always happy to help and take the time out to have a chat with you. We were offered an amazing dinner option and bacon egg sandwich for breakfast (it was delicious!!). You can guarantee to see me again in the near future guys! Thank you so much :)

I have stayed her several times when I pass though westport and will always stay with these guys as they are very hospitable. They are owner/operators so they always want to make sure that everyone has the best stay as its in their direct interest. They do a really good bacon and egg sandwich for only a few extra dollars for breakfast which they claim is the best and damn it they are right!

Stayed here for 1 night whilst travelling with Kiwi Experience. Although Westport is a pretty quiet place its worth going to just to hang out at this hostel. The rooms are cosy and have a homely feel just like the rest of the hostel which is more like a big house. The kitchens are excellent with lots of little extras that are appreciated when you are travelling.

Finally the 2 guys that own and run the place are awesome, laid back and have a passion for what they do. What more can you ask for?

Very nice spot! More than anything, very nice hosts. These guys are fun guys to hang out with and are very helpful if you need any advice or pretty much anything. The two guys who own this place are always there and they love getting involved with the guests. Surf lessons are available from them as well as mountain biking day trips. Fun place to hangout for a few days.

Great place. Cosy and comfortable with the two owners making you very much at home.
They brought us a great breakfast (in bed) with a candle stuck in the bacon and egg sandwich for my partner as it was his birthday (a surprise for him) We were travelling on our motorbike and had secure storage.We cooked our own BBQ in a lovely seperate area. Although the black cat pinched one of our sausages. Hope he enjoyed it Pity about the builder who was there at the time . He lives in laa laa land!!!!!!!!!!!
