I've stayed in many hostels throughout the world and this is one of the best I've ever stayed in. The hostel is very clean and cosy, with a fantastic travel-themed decor. The staff are very friendly and give good recommendations for things to do in the area. The beds are very comfortable, each with a socket and light.

Cannot recommend highly enough

We found ourselves passing through Greymouth and what luck we happened upon Global Village. This is the best hostel we stayed at during our NZ trip, possibly our entire travels! Our private room had two comfortable beds, fun decor, plenty of lighting and outlets. The kitchen was so well equipped we were able to cook dinner and breakfast easily. Really a gem of a place, if you are in Greymouth, stay here!

This was far and away the best hostel I've ever stayed in! It was incredibly clean and comfortable. The two people working there were very friendly and helpful. And the room setup was as good as can be for a 6-bed bunk room. I stayed in the female only room, which was a lovely change from hearing guys snore in other hostels. The bed was comfy and as I was in the top bunk, I really appreciate the little shelf for belongings on the wall and individual light for reading. The kitchen has everything you could want and the female-only bathroom was clean with nice showers. Only stayed for one night so did not take advantage of the amenities, but the common space was comfortable and wifi worked well. Would highly recommend staying here!!

Global Village has a really nice feel to it. Great travel memorabilia is part of the decor. Very clean and plenty of room and utensils etc for cooking. Very nice clean room and the bathrooms were also very clean. Nice dining area and lounge area.

Room Tip: Not sure as we only stayed one night.

This hostel has such a lovely feel to it. It's warm, well organised, has plenty of communal space & is clean. The kitchen is large enough for everyone & the internet is a decent speed. We would def stay here again
