Save 10% on all room types; Noah’s is the ideal place to kick back, chill out and explore the adventurous activities the West Coast has to offer.  Originally an old monastery, when Greymouth was flooded the town’s inhabitants used the monastery as a refuge and that’s how it got its name.  Noah’s Ark Backpackers continues to offer a welcoming, friendly place to stay, along with quality and affordability that is hard to beat.
