I had a good time at Sequoia backpackers. Booked for one night but stayed 3 because I was waiting to do the Queens Charlotte track. Or maybe the Chocolate pudding with Ice cream had something to do with it :-). Clean hostel, nice atmosfeer, big kitchen and very good Wifi. Also Staff was very friendly and helpfull.

Very friendly and helpful staff. All of the basic amenities you would expect from a NZ BBH hostel. The chocolate pudding was delicious and the hot tub was relaxing. Picton is a small town, but the hostel was well located regardless.

Really nice hostel. The girl on reception was extremely friendly and helpful. Facilities were good, beds comfortable. Nice stove in the lounge area was warm and welcoming! Free wifi in the hostel and free chocolate pudding each night made this place all the more impressive. Would definitely stay again

Free wifi, free chocolate pudding with ice cream in the evening (yummy!!) The doors of each room can't be locked and there are no lockers. It's not in the town centre, but it's only a short walk to get there. The kitchen is big and the common area nice and comfortable.

Wow, what a great example of a hostel. The room was clean, big and comfortable. There was so much space for 4 of us traveling and the grounds of the hostel are awesome. Excellent value for the money.

Gorgeous little gem of a hostel, was a relief to find somewhere so well-run, homey and welcoming after staying at a sub-standard place in Kaikoura. Staff brilliant, comfy common room with a fire when it's cold, free wifi, excellent facilities - they've thought of everything. Free hot water bottles, towels, secure lockers. I stayed in the female dorm which was spacious and had a huge bathroom. They do drop offs at the ferry terminal too which was super helpful. Big thumbs up

FREE CHOCOLATE PUDDING AND ICE CREAM. Enough said. A bit far from town but not too bad. There were no locks on the doors. The hot pool was nice, and so was the outdoor seating area. Pretty good wifi. Would return.

For my mate who hates soft beds. She would have hated it, the bed was ridiculously soft so anyone who likes a bit more support from a bed don't stay here. Others than this, everything was great for the night I stayed there.
