    ExcellentFor the first time I felt like the money I spent didn't match the quality of the hostel. The mattresses were quite poor (one can feel the metal frame when laying over it) and the toilettes quite tricky to access. Not everything was bad though, not at all. Great kitchen, great staff and cozy building!

    This was quite a nice place to stay, located five minutes from the train station, 2 minutes from Mcdonald's and 7 minutes from the supermarket. The only bad thing was free wifi is limited to 300mb per night.

    Simple accomodations ”

    The hostel is well located and has a friendly vibe.. We were warmly welcomed. The room was smell and had a musty smell. We were across from. A large kitchen. There was an eating area and a small TV room in the converted home. The wrap around porch was charming and there was outdoor space where guests camped. As far as we knew there was only 2 bathrooms - far below what is required. It was okay for one night.

Have plenty of board games for us to play. Well equipped and clean kitchen. Not sure how does the shower work but had a hard time before getting the hot water running. Overall it was a pleasant stay and would definitely recommend to others who will be staying in Greymouth.
