“awesome”
Reviewed March 20, 2006

An amazing hostel - the kitchen was spotless and well stock with everything in it's place. The tribal artifacts throughout the rooms make each one feel individual and not at all like a hostel. We stayed in a double room and it felt like a mini hotel. Would definitely recommend.

Stayed June 2005

Fantastic place, it's a shame there isn't that much to do in Greymouth as we would have stayed longer! Free Kayaks and bikes. Free hot Muffins in the evening, and fresh bread and jam for breakfast. Spa and gym. Lovely atmosphere, fantastic decoration of rooms. Can't wait to go back

This is a great place to stay while staying in Greymouth and it is a credit to the owners. It has a lovely relaxed atomsphere about the place. I loved the spa pool. The facilities are really clean and they have a cozy TV and lounge area also.
