Liked: It had a piano and guitar there. There were bikes that were free to borrow. The living room was warm and comfy with a real fire and great selection of magazines. All the rooms were well decorated. The kithen was very clean. We found the other guests to be very helpful. The owner gave us a free lift into town when we left.

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: It was clean, lots of character, great vibes and great positioning. Great value, if I am ever at Greymouth again I would definitely be staying there.

Disliked: Not much. Experience is great. Not in the centre of the city but there is not too much to do in the city anyway. The hostel was awesome to stay at and just chill out and get away from city life.

Liked: I stayed in 7 backpackers places in New Zealand over a span of 9 days. They were all good but Global Village is honestly the best one out of all. I love the character of this place. The decor is quirky and interesting. I love the room, it's small but more than enough for my needs and has very thoughtful side tables which many backpackers places lack. My favourite part of this place has to be the kitchen. As a neat person, the kitchen was packed to perfection. Everything was neatly stowed away and the space was wonderfully utilised. They also allow free use of their bicycles and kayaks and is the only place I stayed at which has this service. Lastly the manager personally gave us a tour of the place and gave useful tips for what to do around the area.

Disliked: Nothing comes to mind!
