I intended to stay at Bazil's Hostel just for one night.
In the end, I stayed for almost 4 months there, because Westport and Bazils are great.
My time at Bazils was one of the best time I had during my travels.
The Hostel itself is very clean and looks pretty cool and relaxed.
The cleaners clean the whole hostel every morning, every day. Even if some people leave a mess during the night, it looks very clean the next morning. (Because of the great cleaners :D )
The Hostel is well equipped with a big variety of room types, two large common kitchens a cozy lounge with a TV and fireplace, outside BBQ-Area, little gym and a relaxing garden with some hammocks.
Another cool thing are those awesome paintings which are spread all over the hostel.
Especially the big painting at the entrance is just mind blowing.
You will never get bored, cause there're so many things to do!
I highly recommend surfing at one of the beautiful beaches and SUP-Boarding on the river. Especially the SUP-Boards can be a lot of fun with a big group.
For those who want to do some sport, I recommend Bazils "Bootcamp" or the public gym!
The trampers and mountain bikers should check out the Charming Creek Walkway.
But that's just some examples, there are a lot more to do like kayaking and fishing.
The owners of the Hostel are quite funny and have a good sense of humor. They will do a lot for you to have a great time and as long as you follow the rules you will have lots of fun and a very good time. You won't leave.... ; )
Thank s Bazils for the great time!
I'm looking forward to come back :D
