    While the rest of Westport might seem like a ghost town, Bazil's is always humming. Music is 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!

    After a lovely morning walk in Kaiteriteri, it was time to make our way to a town called Westport, known for its wild west coast surf spot. We had a few stops along the way and after a good spin in the coach we came to Nelson Lakes. Nelson Lakes is the northern most part of the Southern alps and it was beautiful with crystal clear waters, …

    Today we drove to our next stop, Westport. We stopped at Nelson Lakes on the way where Adam jumped in to the freezing cold water. We also stopped by the Buller River and a few of us went horse trekking which i've never done before; my horse was very lazy and hungry and kept stopping but it was good fun :-) We stayed at Basil's hostel which I didn't …

    ... very lucrative whilst others just scraped an existence but there was sufficient prospects of a good living for families to be moved into the area and schools, churches and businesses set up. In reality the auxiliary business sometimes were more profitable than the gold mining, for instance a shoes maker who made miners' boots ended up one of the richest men in New Zealand at the time! So Hokitika was a rip-roaring town in its day, full of colourful, if somewhat ...
