Best hostel I ever stayed. A historical building, but with modern and excellent rooms. The beds slept well, the shower was good and everything was very, very clean.
We stayed here for one night during the Summers End festival and were glad the organization arranged this for us.

It's a wonderful place, built and managed by a fantastic person. My friends and me have planned to stay just one night, but, after the experience we had there, we finally stopped three days and were really sad to leave.
Thanks Mick, keep improving that magic place!

I arrived on a Saturday for a one night stay. The welcome I got from Mick and Ness was brilliant. As soon as I stepped into the hostel I felt at home. At this point I must say that the level of workmanship and decor at the Greenman Backpackers is second to none. I have never been to a hostel like it. It was more like a 5 star hotel. Everywhere was sparkling and the standard of the facilities absolutely brilliant. It is hard to explain just how good it is, I encourage anyone who is planning a stay in or around Chepstow to check out the Greenman. Whether you are on a budget or not the Greenman has to be the place to stay.
The bar is another great aspect of the hostel. Frequented by locals and residents it too has a very friendly inviting atmosphere. You get a feel for local issues and every one is so friendly. I am not the greatest bar visitor but the evening i spent there was one of the best.
The renovation of the hostel has taken 7 years and Mick and Ness have had the vision and determination to develop a wonderful concept. I cannot praise the Greenman enough, you must go there to experience what a fantastic facility it is.

A genuine surprise. I spend my life booking 4 and 5 star hotels for corporate Conferences so i know what to expect generally. Having just completed 12 days on the Offa’s Dyke i arrived into Chepstow and was told about a Brand new place that had just opened. Someone said it was a backpackers hostel so i was expecting something very Basic and functional. The moment i arrived i was bowled over, from being greeted by a most wonderful woman to an amazing and beautifully exotic and stylish building inside. I thought i had entered a beautiful boutique hotel . The bar was busy on a Saturday night , the staff and the local patrons gave me an amazing welcome as i had walked the Offa’s Dyke and i found this friendliness and warmth ran throughout this amazingly deceptive and mesmerising place. One of the patrons recommended a venue for dinner where i was meet a local friend.
It was exotic because to me it was a strange etheral mix of being a hotel, a hostel, a museum, an Art Gallery (the place has the most beautifully eclectic art and Photography. The furnishings are 5 star and the Greenman Backpackers has been created with love, taste and a real sense of community. I absolutely loved it. Breakfast is self-serve and everything is set out Perfectly in a modern high tech and communal ethos.
The bedrooms were brand new, smart and secure and the bathrooms had amazing showers and facilities, As i say i have booked and have stayed at many hotels and accommodation and its a genuine rarity to find such a place . Without doubt, will only stay here whenever i am in Chepstow again. The owner and his partner have created something unique.

The Greenman is far more than just a place to park your rucksack. Walking through this old building, which has been lovingly restored by Mick and Ness, is a history lesson in itself with its Georgian and Regency rooms and even a medieval moot house (still being restored).
The beds are extremely comfortable, the washing facilities excellent and there is a wonderful bar with a friendly atmosphere.
We stayed two nights for the Mari Lwyd festival in January and intend to return in the summer.
We cannot recommend the Greenman highly enough. In the "other details" section I describe it as "quaint" and "quirky" because these are the words that come closest to unique and fascinating.
