Loved this hostel. My boyfriend and I spend the night here and were welcomed by the lovely owner (Dory) who showed us all the stuff to do around Greymouth because we were a bit early and our room wasn't ready yet. Dory is such a nice person and tries to get as involved as possible with her guests! The hostel...

We were pretty late arriving for check-in, but rang as soon as we had signal and the nice manager held our room for us and arranged for key to be left for us to pick up when we turned up. The hostel itself is clean but pretty outdated, although I think this is fairly standard in queenstown. We had room...

My little family stayed at Duke's hostel only for one night, but we really enjoyed the friendly and affectionate atmosphere. Shoshy gave our one year old daughter a soft toy to play with, but our wee one fell in love with this little cow and Shoshy gave it to us as a present! Thank you for that and the nice...

The staff is great! I was sick and the manager let me have my own room. The wi-fi is free an very fast, good when u are sick and wanna watch Netflix. It is clean but it is a little bit run-down and little bit cold. I was sick so maybe that made it colder than it actually was.

Clean, good hot water, comfy beds, nice staff. Fine for a hostel you get what you pay for really. Nice to have a heater in the room. It's a shame there's not much going on in greymouth which is not the fault of the hostel at all.
