Nice hostel to stay at, large kitchen and lots of areas to hang out they also have a nice outdoor area to use (so long as it's not raining) they give you 200 mb of Internet free which is better than nothing and more than some of the other hostels I've stayed at. Rooms and bathrooms are also well kept... More

When arriving with my Stray bus mates, I needed to pay by credit card and tried to inform the host that I had a medical issue. The hostel processes those with cash before processing those paying my credit card. When checking in with a large bus, I need to check-in relatively fast or first to secure a bottom bunk bed...

Very nice hostel in a historic house. Lots of recreational space and a warm and cozy fireplace with couches all around it. Have some board games and a movie room separate from the nice cozy fireplace room.Would definitely stay again if I were to visit Westport again.

My 3rd stay at the tripinn, 2012, 2015 and again 2015 but ten month later, and it's still the same nice, clean, friendly place. Someone is playing Piano in the saloon, around the fire we listen, it's so nice.

The hostel is a beautifull old villa with a unique atmosphere. There is a spacious lounge and the staff is friendly. The location is pretty convenient, close to almost everything there is in the town. However, our room was too small with hardly any space to store luggage. Also it was next to shared bathroom and there was a lot... More

Apart from the staff who was super unfriendly, it is a nice hostel. Good rooms, look like new, all brand new showers and toilets (even if you need to out of the building to access it, means if you need to go for a wee during a cold winter night, this is not very pleasant), big kitchen and the best...

We liked the historic building and grounds and well furnished kitchen. Our room for 3 had no place to put anything and a bare bulb in the ceiling. The Wi-Fi allotment could have been more generous. But the staff and owners were very nice. I'd go back.

I've been staying in a lot of hostels recently and this is definitely the worst one for multiple reasons! On arrival the women at reception wasn't very helpful.

I absolutly loved this hostel. It feels like a big home. Highlights are the big open spaces, tv room and best of all a real fire. If you are doing the Abel Tasman or heading south break up the journey here. Westport itself is a sleepy town so it was nice to have a hostel i actually wanted to spend... More

I was very happy with my stay here. The beds were comfortable and the dorms seemed roomier than the others I've stayed in. The rooms were clean and tidy and I liked the commom areas which were also spacious and clean. Well worth a stay!
