Kitchin was tiny then jamed and loudly and easy smoky. You should go to restsurants or Bar or Take a way food is better. I'll be back there soon. Cheers.

      Five star feeling in a remote town”
      Staff performance, art work, location
      I a mistake in our reservation. When I asked at the front desk if our room has a bathroom which I thought it has, he said no. I wanted an upgrade (by money of course). He took care of us so very well in the middle of checking in 45 other people. We got unit 1 which has two stories, a fridge, electric kettle, plates, bowls, cups, tea, coffee, microwave oven, etc. plus a good size bathroom. If it was in a big city I could not have given them five stars but here in Westport which reminded us of a Texan border town this hostel gives us a five star equivalent stay. We used the communal kitchen in the evening of our checking in because was cleaning our unit. The kitchen is well equipped, clean and it has enough spices for someone like me who loves cooking. Our unit made us happy. The entire hostel is filled with wonderful, funky wall art, signs and just a vibe of friendliness. The heaters are on timers but when my husband went, he kept it running continuously plus we had another space heater. really tries to satisfy his customers. You do need to ask if you need or want something extra. They will try to accommodate you. I have Brown skin and I am Asian. I found it offensive when one reviewer accused of being a racist. So far in our almost 3 weeks travel I did not encounter a single person in NZ who is even remotely racist. It is a breath of fresh air for anyone who visited Australia ever. My 72 year old husband and I am sending our fond regards. This place has our highest recommendation. By the way, wifi worked perfectly for us. We drank or morning cup of coffee while listening to a San Francisco Classical Music radio station KDFC over the net. Needless to say it made us feel at home.

      a good HOSTEL (not hotel)”
      nice staff, facilities, big room
      Bazils is a very good hostel but it is hard to compare it to a proper hotel as it simply does not have this standard. the common facilities such as garden, shared kitchen and seating areas are very nice (if you like this kind of stuff). the room itself was ok. Bed was way too soft and all was not the standard of a 4-star hotel (but for hostel it was ok!). staff was really nice and friendly

      Best backpackers so far.”
      Clean, well organised, rules clearly defined and enforced.
      Basil's was an ideal location right in the middle of town. The staff kept the place spotless and there was plenty off cookers, crockery and cutlery. Adequate fridges obviously run by someone who has done a lot of travelling. Parking was off road and beside the hostel. Truly fantastic for the young and old.

      location and relaxed atmosphere
      We stayed in Westport for 1 night and had a private room at Bazil's Hostel. The mattress was very spongy and had obviously seen its best days some time ago but the service and atmosphere in the hostel were excellent. Lots of backpackers pass through, sometimes by the coachload.

      Just like instantly being part of a family
      Although I arrived late, they made a point of having everything ready for me. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to use and quickly integrate with the other guests. Ray had excellent information about the sights to see in the area and if he wasn't smiling, it wasn't Ray. Although a very relaxed atmosphere, the basic rules were enforced for a safe and relaxing stay.
