      Clean spacious and overly friendly staff. Relaxing and very unique. The best hostel in New Zealand (judging from the 20 I've been in so far). It lacks many freebies like breakfast or wifi but has kayaks and bikes to make you enjoy your stay

      It was love at first browse. We didn't even bother comparison shopping. Here we could chill for a few
      days, enjoy home comforts, and weather the weather. Global Village
      offered a cosy lounge with a fire lit by friendly staff everyday at
      5pm, free bikes and kayaks, cheap spa and sauna, a decent book
      exchange, a piano and guitar, and board games including life-size

      Lovely facilities, calm and quiet atmosphere and an easy 20 minute walk to and from the town centre. Highly recommmended.

      Heute gönne ich mir einen Ruhetag und mache das, was normale Menschen in ihren Ferien so tun. Nämlich nichts.

      Oder fast nichts. Es gab nur eine kurze Etappe nach Greymouth. Flach und mit Rückenwind. Also ganz entspannt.

      Nachdem ich also nun um einige Fliegenbisse reicher bin, ging die Fahrt weiter. Nächster Halt Murchison. Aber nur um den angelnden Moritz dort rauszulassen. Der durfte die Nacht nämlich im Zelt verbringen und war, da es mal wieder geregnet hat, klitschenass. Ich bin dann weiter zur Buller Gorge Swingbridge. Das ist die längste Hä …
