    The BEST backpackers I've stayed at! Shera is an absolute blast, within 2 minutes of meeting her you feel like you've known her your whole life. The building is so beautiful and welcoming, full of life and love. Would recommend to anyone!

    Loved my stay at Atlantis. The staff make it a very homely place. The building has character and good vibes. This is not a typical hostel.. more like a home. Would definitely go back when I am in Picton again. Comfy room and clean bathroom and kitchen is a total bonus. Best part was the people who take care of the facility. Sherry is an awesome host and very helpful with all local information and just great to chat with. Highly recommended. Thanks, Rashmi

    The quickest way to access the true culture of Picton, you haven't experienced the gate to the south island without meeting Shera and her crew. A hostel dripping with creativity and pure abandoned joy, the Atlantis Backpackers is quintessential New Zealand, and a monument to the community's we can create in a place where we are free to open our minds and hearts.

    This place has such originality and the owner is just a gem of delight, she loves people. All the spaces are different with lots of artist work on the wall. She does dessert and breakfast for guest. Best place to stay in picton if your looking for unique style.

    Pretty grotty and full of cats which go Everywhere - bedding was covered in cat hair and looking old and tired. Owner was understanding, got a refund and moved to a different hostel. If you want somewhere clean, this not the place for you.
