          A basic double room with thin walls. Saved by decent showers, although you have to freeze to cross over to them.

          While the rest of Westport might seem like a ghost town, Bazil's is always humming. Music playing throughout the hostel and groups of European travelers occupy all seating areas. There's lots of laughter. We were lucky enough to secure a self contained unit with 5 beds, a kitchen and a bathroom all to ourselves; this is definitely the cleanest hostel room I've stayed in. The beds are mostly comfortable but the rooms are heated! Great location to Denniston Dog, the best bar and grill in town and close to "shops". Laundry on site and a bush bath are extra pluses, but by far the best amenity was the actually working wifi!

          This hostel had a nice big kitchen and outside communal rooms. Decor a bit dated and showers require you to press button outside the showers for hot water. But it's good for a one night stop!

          Nach 2,5 Wochen Arbeit hatten wir uns mal ein paar Tage Pause verdient ;)
          Um 11:00 führten uns Warren und Gail nach Richmond, von dort wollten wir dann nach Westport hitchhiken. Wir mussten teilweise ziemlich lang warten (in Murchison im Regen....) aber nach knapp 5 Stunden waren wir dann endlich angekommen! Da …

          Westport was quite a fun town, at least for the <24 hours I was there. I chose to do my horseback riding here because you got to go swimming in the river with them. Unfortunately the river was too low, but it was still quite a fun time, and I got to try out riding while the horse galloped - which was quite terrifying. Afterwards the entire Kiwi …

          The morning after the failure of the day before, we set off in the darkness from our hostel in Taupo (again picked up by the white limo). There were some clouds, but it looked good nonetheless. We suited up and got into the plane (we'd learnt from our mistake from yesterday and had worn all the clothes we owned - it was still cold). Sophie and I …

          This was such an unexpected weekend getaway. The northern west coast was unchartered territory for me and Mark so of course, on ANZAC weekend I planned our trip here. I was looking for an outdoors experience, to truly get the feel for "Wild West Coast" so I booked a room at a hostel in the middle of no where in a town called Westport and told Mark …

          We got picked up by water taxi (basically speed boats with enormous engines) for access to Abel Tasman National Park. Getting on and off involved good timing and jumping from the ramp, similar to some computer games. When our driver did a 360 degree turn, I seemed to be much closer to the water than anyone else, and could practically dip my face in …
