Liked: Great Hostel - More like a Hotel. Big rooms, great beds, electric plugs for each bed and fantastic interior decor! All rooms styled in African /Aboriginal colors and figures. Very clean and great atmosphere.

Disliked: A little of the city beat - But due to City size not a real problem.

Liked: Free kayaks and bikes, really nice African theme around everywhere in the hostel, a fireplace in the living room. In the dorm there was lots of places to hang the clothes.

Disliked: A little bit far from the centre.

Liked: The entire facility was super clean and fabulously decorated. It had a "homey" feel and there were many additional perks compared to other places we've stayed (use of bikes, kayaks).

Disliked: One of our 2 rooms got rather warm during the night as we weren't able to regulate the heater properly.

Liked: We both loved EVERYTHING about this property. It was the most amazing place that we stayed in in the four weeks in New Zealand. It is a little oasis. From the start. The chap who showed us in was extremely friendly. I think that his name was SIMON.The room that we had was lovely and had our own veranda. There are no en suite rooms but the bathrooms are lovely with modern bathrooms and the African theme evident in all the rooms and the bathrooms (we peeped into some of the rooms on our floor). The communal lounge was beautiful with African artefacts everywhere, piano, music sheets, guitar, free canoe, free bikes........the list is endless. Oh, and inexpensive WiFi. The kitchen was beautiful and had all the necessary amenities. The colour scheme throughout was lovely. The place was adorned with african animals etc.. and the garden looked like a little jungle. There was a smoking conservatory and other little areas jotted around which you came across when strolling around. Hot tub too. In fact, we did not budge and stayed the evening in this beautiful place. Sorry, Greymouth, but we never got to see you. A wonderful place and completely underpriced for what you get!

Disliked: leaving.

Liked: Amazing decor and facilities as well as free kayaks and bicycle use.... Selection of movies in a very cool TV area on a rainy day helps and kitchen is top notch. Seriously one of the best hostels I have stayed in

Disliked: only that the rooms on the ground floor hear people walking on the top floor quite easily and loudly....but a small price to pay.
