We have a fun, friendly, & relaxed backpacker in Greymouth. The gateway to New Zealand's Wild West Coast! Our backpackers is a beautiful old building, ex-monastery 100m from middle of town with a nice big garden with hammocks, fireplace and BBQ area. We also have a resident dog called Cosmo and a cat called Jessie.
All the hostel rooms are animal themed.
We enjoy having people come and stay as this gives us the opportunity to learn all about your different cultures. We find this very enriching. Particularly learning about where people come from and their way of life, language and food preferences. Similarly, it is a good opportunity for you to learn from us as New Zealanders. We are described as a "home away from home" by many of our visitors. Some come back for a second or third stay! Good fun all round.
The help is 2-3 hours a day. Mainly household tasks such as cleaning, vacuuming and folding. You will need to have a NZ work visa.
We have one space available NOW :
Or you are welcome to join us at a later date if that works better for you.

We hope to hear from you soon.
