I have been in this hostel in February and June, for few weeks, and each time was awesome.
You can surf whatever the season, the sea is not so cold, and the wet-suit good quality. I learn so much about surf with Steve, Tom and Pana (instructors). The spots around Westport are very good, and not busy ! It's good, compare to North Island.
The staff is very friendly, the owners cool, and the artists skilled ! Everything there helps to remember it's holiday time ! It's cosy, the room are spacious, the leaving room full of DVD. The nights are quiet (friendly security guy will ask you to), but there is everything one block away for party time !
If you prefer sport activity, rent a bike and try the cost tracks or the old ghost road, a skate and go to the skate park, or ask for the gym next door.
The murals are awesome, it's like everyone give a piece of personality, and the result give you one of the best place to be in New Zealand !
