greymouth... the capital of the south island west coast where all the bus companies stop and many other passing by travellers spend a night surely must be hell of a town with a spectacular backpacker nightlife?


this town is dead

everyone is doing a one nighter here... for a reason!

the only activity worthwhile doing is the brewery tour! 20 bucks for a (loooong!) local beer brewery tour with tons of samples and a 20 minutes "the tap is yours" ending... plus a bbq

unfortunately it was in the local sports pub (the place to be in greymouth...) meaning 10 drunken greymouth lads hunting for backpacker girls which scared them away in minutes back to their hostels (or maybe it was me, i will never find out...)

unfortunately again, i was the only stupid person with yha vouchers to burn and was therefore the only person of the bus staying in the yha - but not to worry, shitty nightlife is a quick bonding thing and helps to get people together in the common room of any hostel! and you get to meet irish girls who prefer tea to beer... strange folks in those yha's! :-)
