Small walk from the ferry to the hostel, 10min. walk to the supermarket. Hostel itself is great, good atmosphere, free WiFi, free to hire a bike, free pool even has a hot tub!

Tombstone is an excellent hostel, unique and quirky and clean. The location is comfortably removed from town and the owner is unbelievably friendly! What a cool dude. I highly recommend these lodgings. The free breakfast was homemade and great!

Great WiFi! Awesome free breakfast, the scones were really yummy! The free shuttle service was great as well-- to and from the ferry terminal.

Would like to thank the owners/staff for their help and assistance during our stay. They went out of their way to assist us. Very pleasant Backpackers to stay in. Little bit out of the main shopping/restaurant area but the delicious scones and home made jam provided for breakfast were absolutely wonderful. Great atmosphere and super spot to relax following the scenic Queen Charlotte walk.

Good hostel, but couldnt understand the 97% rating it received.The main drawbacks are location & lack of wifi in rooms, also no lockers in room. Other than that i expected to get a better breakfast (only scones and jam) from 97% hostel. Bottom line, it's a decent hostel, just dont raise your expectations too high.

Excellent! Nikki and Gary do a great job of making you feel at home. Lovely to wake up to hot scones and jam. The short walk to town is nice and certainly not a problem. We were met at the ferry and dropped at the station, couldn't ask for more. We will be back.

My only gripe is that I didn't stay longer! Excellent rooms and kitchen area. Plenty of places to relax. Excellent free unlimited wifi. Lovely and warm. Super close to the ferry terminals and shops. Friendly owner/staff.

They've really hit the nail on the head with this hostel. Warm, comfortable and the owner gave me a lift to the ferry terminal. Top marks all round.
