We came across this hostel when researching our trip to the South Island. We were intrigued by the name and the images of the rooms and decided to give it a try. We stayed in the Giraffe Room which was very spacious. This hostel is warm and comfortable, and we found the beds comfortable. It is a very short walk into town where there is a limited number of eating options (McDonalds is on the corner). The hostel has a well laid out kitchen which we used a number of times. They also had a tv room, lounge, washing/drying facilities, fishing rods etc. You can also walk the dog. The hostel has a noise curfew which we though was good. We felt that it was very well priced and would be happy to stay there again if we revisited Greymouth. The shared bathrooms were spacious and at no time did we have to wait to use them.
