Simply excellent!!
until now (some months) the best backpackers in NZ and Australia! We enjoyed the great ocean view from our room, the really fine hospitality from Kerry (owner) with many helpful tips and a warm welcome, the perfectly equipped kitchen (all dishes same fine english style, big wine glasses and so much more), the log fire in the cosy living room, and so many small but excellent details like fresh flowers, pictures, fresh herbs. You really feel that the owners have their passion in this hostel and want to create a perfect (and affordable!) stay for each visitor.

Above and Beyond!
Clean, comfortable, with great hosts. While bikepacking on our tandem bicycle with my wife, I crashed on the railroad tracks at the Taramakau bridge between Greymouth and Hokitika. I was a bit scraped up, but my wife had landed hard and was really hurting. A nice couple stored our bike and belongings at their house while she took us to the hospital in Greymouth to get checked out and make sure nothing was broken. Thankfully nothing was broken, but it was obvious that the cycling portion of our trip was over. By the time we were done at the hospital, it was too late to get a rental car, and we were 35km from Birdsong (that's an expensive taxi ride) where we had reserved a room for two nights. We called up Kerry, told her the situation, and asked for some advice. Her response -- I'll come pick you up. Not only did Kerry pick us up, she stopped by the grocery store so we could buy some food for dinner. On the drive, I talked about my ideas for how I might be able to get back to Nelson Lakes to get our van. She listened to my ideas, and said "We can do better than that", but she didn't elaborate. The next morning, as we were finishing breakfast, Kerry came to us with a plan for a bus/shuttle trip Nelson Lakes. When I approved it, she quickly reserved my tickets for me. Her help and guidance saved us so much time, effort and money. In addition, while I was traveling to get our van, Kerry made arrangements for my wife to do a carving at Bonz N Stonz. Kerry then gave her a ride into town, as she was unable to walk the distance with her injuries. Way to go above and beyond!!! I would highly recommend Birdsong Backpackers! Not only do they provide clean, comfortable accommodation, but they truly take care of you when the need arises.

Great place
It's by far the best hostel i've ever stayed. the host is very friendly and makes you feel welcome from the start. he gave me many good advices of stuff to do in the area. the beds were comfy, the kitchen had everything i needed and it was all very clean. i enjoyed a beautiful sunset in the lounge while i had my dinner and even found some greenstone at the beach across the road. it's been a very relaxing place to stay. don't miss it, if you head to the west coast!
  This is a nice hostel and the owner is really helpful. However it is a bit out of the town centre if you don't have a car, although it is within walking distance to the glow-worms. There is a good atmosphere to it although more bathrooms are needed and the kitchen can be a bit of a squeeze if a few people are cooking at the one time. It has good soundproofing. I liked it.
